Share options granted under the Enterprise Management Incentive Scheme (usually referred to as EMI options) are a popular choice for SME and start-up companies who want to reward and incentivise employees in alternative ways to simply paying them more amounts of cash.
EMI share options are an HM Revenue & Customs approved share option arrangement, offering tax advantages without using aggressive tax planning.
Under an EMI scheme, employees are granted options enabling them to acquire shares in their employer company (or its holding company) at some pre-arranged point in the future, rather than being issued with shares straight away. The point at which the option holders can exercise their options may be agreed as a future exit event, such as a sale or listing of the company, but EMI options can allow flexibility in deciding when the options can be exercised, and the shares acquired.
