It goes without saying that your workforce is your most valuable asset. We know that companies who reward employees with equity are more productive and profitable, particularly as those employees who understand the part they play in the company’s success tend to work harder to increase the value of the capital they hold in the business.
Share schemes take many forms, from Government ‘approved’ schemes such as the incredibly successful Enterprise Management Incentive Scheme (EMI) through to more bespoke Growth Share arrangements. Thankfully we’re well-versed in implementing all forms of share schemes and we support every share scheme we implement with a thoroughly prepared tax valuation to ensure HMRC are fully onboard from the outset.
We work closely with you and your lawyers to design and implement the right employee share incentive arrangement for your business. We take the time to ensure that both you and your employee(s), fully understand how the scheme works, as well as understanding what you’re getting into and how the scheme operates to build future capital value for all involved.
A great deal of this process is about good, clear communication from the beginning which is something we pride ourselves on.

I’m a Tax Valuation Specialist with 25 years’ experience. Prior to joining Claritas Birmingham in October 2018 I worked for a Big Four firm in Birmingham and Manchester, heading up their valuation practices. I started my career on the ‘other side’ at HMRC’s Shares and Assets Valuation before joining the world of professional services.
The Claritas team were flexible and responsive in relation to our needs from beginning to end on the sale of our business.
Along with their expert advice, we really valued this agility, so as the structure of the transaction developed, Claritas adapted their approach to these changing requirements, to provide us with the right advice whenever we needed it.
