Employee Share Schemes

Date - 08 May 2019
Venue - Bartier Perry



Employee share schemes (ESS) are a great way of attracting, retaining and motivating employees. Share schemes can reward employee performance and align their interests with those of your company.

How do employee share schemes work and what are their benefits? As an established business, what do you need to consider?

Join us for a breakfast seminar with Accru Felsers Chartered Accountants to find out.

In this session, Bartier Perry’s Eric Kwan and Sam Harmer, along with Accru Felsers Chartered Accountant's Will Merdy, will give you the low-down on Employee Share Schemes (ESS) for medium to large organisations.

Our ESS experts will help you understand:

  • what is an ESS and how it works

  • the benefits you can expect from an ESS

  • how you can structure your ESS

  • what issues you need to think about before implementing an ESS (eg tax, commercial, compliance)

Please feel free to extend this invitation to colleagues where appropriate.
