Employee share schemes - problem or opportunity?

Thomas Dalby has written a new book which seeks to break down the perceived complexities of employee share schemes and encourage more businesses to take advantage of the tax benefits.

Employee Share Schemes – Equity Reward for Private Companies offers straightforward and practical guidance for employers and their professional advisers considering the implementation of an approved share scheme. The underlying principle of Finance Act 2003 is worked out through a series of schemes, each with its own advantages and restrictions.

The book clearly explains the important gains these schemes can bring including tax benefits and longer term employee retention – two important considerations overlooked by numerous companies worried about what they see as the potential difficulties associated with employee share initiatives.

Thomas Dalby, who has more than 20 years’ experience as a chartered tax adviser and as an employed barrister, said: “Employee share schemes can be a brilliant way for small and medium sized companies to attract and keep the best people.

“Many companies and advisers are put off share schemes because the rules appear to be complex and there is a perception that employee shares are a problem, not an opportunity.

“I wanted to write something aimed at employers and advisers to try to answer their questions about share schemes in a clear and accessible way and to help employers make the most of the generous tax benefits written into the legislation.”

Employee Share Schemes – Equity Reward for Private Companies is available now and can be purchased direct from the publisher, Claritax, priced £85.
