I don’t know if there’s something in the water around here right now but I seem to spending a huge proportion of my time advising clients on either:
- the benefits (and potential pitfalls!) of the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) aimed at tax efficient investments into fledgling fast growth companies and
- rewarding employees under an approved HMRC tax efficient share option scheme called the Enterprise Management Incentive Scheme (EMI)
I will follow up with a more detailed analysis of the pros and cons of these UK statutory tax reliefs in future posts.
In the meantime, you know where I am if these are already on your agenda and you need some help.
