A beginner's guide to growth shares

Sharing equity is one of the easiest ways to incentivise and retain your top-performing talent. But how do you motivate advisors, contractors, or consultants who help your business get to the next level?

Businesses are laser focused on making their operations leaner. This means utilising contractual workers, consultants, and advisors whenever possible. But a contract isn’t always enough to ensure high-performance.

Instead, companies are using growth shares to incentivise hard work and reward their commitment to the business.

If you want to learn how growth shares can be the key to unlocking performance and growth, this is the masterclass for you.

Are growth shares the right choice for you?

Flexible structure

Employees and non-employees can both reap the benefits of the work they put into the business.

Fewer HMRC restrictions

Growth shares can be issued by any business, unlike other share schemes that have restrictions on issuance.

Rewards growth

Since growth shares directly relate to how well the company does, they motivate individuals to contribute.

Reduced time restrictions

There is no time restriction on exercising growth shares. They can be exercised at any point.

Tax efficient

Shareholders reap the benefit of lower tax rates and can exercise it over an unlimited time period.

Reduce the cost of hiring A-players

It's a costly and lengthy process to hire for high-in-demand roles. Sharing equity gives them a reason to stay.
