VALUE ELEMENT WHAT IS IT? WHY DOES IT MATTER? IF IT'S NOT INCLUDED?
Share scheme specialists Having dedicated experts to speak to. People who focus on all aspects of equity every day. You need to speak to people who understand the ins and outs to feel secure to make decisions. Lawyers and accountants who charge £x,000s very quickly.
In-house valuations Valuations for EMI and growth shares that are needed on scheme set up. You want to give recipients tax certainty. Dealing with one company to supply this information makes sense. Hire a specialist valuer / accountant and pay £1,000-£2,000 per valuation. You may need several each year.
Share scheme designer Something or somebody that guides you through all the key commercial decisions around scheme design to ensure you get the scheme you want. It is crucial to design your scheme/s thoughtfully to create the maximum impact on your organisation and recipients. Hire a specialist consultancy or lawyer and pay £2,000-£3,000 for this sort of support.
Share scheme documentation The legal agreements that frame and implement the scheme. Without these, there is no scheme. Hire a lawyer or specialist accountant and pay £2,000-£10,000.
HMRC notification support Remembering to - and knowing how to - submit initial and ongoing annual notifications to HMRC for your scheme. If this isn't done your scheme is not valid with HMRC. Pay an accountant £500-£1,000 per year to do this for you, whenever it needs to be done.
Companies House integration An ability to issue shares, pass resolutions, do company updates and send all relevant documents at the push of a button to Companies House. Directors have legal obligations to send all relevant company documents to Companies House, typically within 20 days. Remember to do it yourself, and have the hassle of preparing and submitting documents, or pay your accountant £500-£1,000 per year.
Recipient portal A digital portal the allows scheme members to accept then see their conditional equity, vesting, and value all in a dynamic visual portal. To maximise the impact of the scheme it is vital that recipients have sight of and are reminded of its value and how this grows over time. No real alternative, just a static paper agreement, which will probably filed away in a drawer and forgotten about.
Shareholder portal A digital portal that allows shareholders to accept then track their equity, while receiving and approving communications from the company. Engaging with your shareholders in a modern dynamic way. Emails and paper share certificates.
Future value scenario modeling The ability to look at returns to shareholders in diluted or non-diluted scenarios and under differing exit and investment scenarios. As the capital structure complexity of the business grows it is important to be able to keep track of the value returns for shareholders under different scenarios. Large spreadsheets
