What you need to know about Employee Share Schemes (ESS) tax rules
The Employee Share Schemes (ESS) tax rules offer tax concessions that make equity far more tax effective for employees of startups. There are, however, strict rules that define which companies qualify as a ‘startup’ and which participants in the plan are eligible for the concessions.
In this webinar, we delve into the ESS tax rules, including:
• how to find out if your company qualifies as a ‘startup’ and traps to watch out for;
• how to structure an ESS plan that meets the requirements for the startup concessions; and
• the tax benefits of the plan for participants.
There’ll also be a short demo on our new market-first ESS app.
