Employee share schemes can be a challenge for accountancy firms supporting their clients. Clients often seek tax advice from their accountant or advice relating to:
- accounting for share based payments (IFRS 2),
- what the best share scheme is for the business,
- how and when to make filings,
- valuing shares,
- and various other niche questions.
And in many cases clients ask their accountants for legal documentation for awards such as EMI.
