EMI share option employee limit goes up to £250,000

Enterprise Management Incentive Schemes (EMI) are a great way of tax efficiently tying in and incentivising key employees within a fast growth SME company.

One of the limitations on EMI schemes has been that each employee could only receive entitlement to shares worth up to £120,000. This is all set to change with effect from 16 June 2012 when this limit goes up to £250,000.

It is good to see the Government supporting schemes like EMI that allow employees to share in the potentially significant equity growth of their employer company.
