The best ways to distribute equity
(Clue: it is almost never Ordinary Shares!)
EMI schemes are the gold standard when it comes to tax efficiency, with recipients paying just 10% CGT on any gains. You can set specific conditions for recipients.
Growth shares are incredibly flexible. There are no statutory requirements or limits to abide by. Recipients benefit from growth in company value from the time at which they are issued.
Unapproved share options are extremely flexible and can be issued directly via our platform to employees, contractors, advisors or consultants. They are quick to set up.
Vestd’s proprietary equity framework gives you the flexibility to create founder prenups and conditional vesting schedules to reward people based on what they bring to the party.

The platform itself allows you to manage all aspects of share and option management concisely in one place. The automations and integrations save you time. But while the platform is great, it is the team that makes Vestd stand out. From pre-sales to onboarding and the ever-helpful support team - not only do they support on the platform but provide excellent knowledge in this area.
Great platform. The team always provide brilliant support. I would definitely recommend using Vestd to anyone who needs to set up and administer an EMI scheme.
Straight forward and structured approach - so good for founders and also FD/CFO/advisor who is looking to get share capital and share option schemes in place.
A fantastic platform. The price is fixed. The customer support is fantastic and readily available. They have held our hand right through the whole process.
I love Vestd and I wish I had found it sooner. It makes the whole process of issuing shares whether they're growth shares or ordinary shares incredibly simple.
Amazing shift from Excel to Vestd. The support team were amazing and did a great job of completing our setup and we have been very pleased at being able to better manage our governance over time.
