Aligning the interests of employees with those of their employer is crucial in
structuring remuneration packages. Employee share and option schemes are
often used as a means of achieving that objective.
It is essential to understand the tax impact of such benefits, in order to ensure that schemes do not cause unforeseen headaches - and excessive compliance
costs - for employees. The surprisingly wide reach of the Employee Share Scheme provisions also means that they can affect taxpayers in unexpected circumstances.
