Old Way vs Vestd Way

The only full service digital platform

There are other digital platforms but none of them have the expert support, the full Companies House integration, nor the FCA regulation. All of these things matter a great deal.



Expert support, from startup to sale

Vestd is more than a platform: our team of share scheme experts makes us unique.

Don’t lose sleep over forms and deadlines

We won’t miss a beat with those important notifications and submissions.

Access for your accountants and lawyers

Invite your professional services advisors to Vestd. Store key docs in your secure vault.

Use your own docs (or ours, if you prefer)

We have standard templates but use your own if they’ve already been prepared.

Ongoing, defensible valuations

Valuations are included and conducted by our in-house team (on Standard and Guided plans).
