Overview

In the UK, the Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) Scheme is a highly flexible and tax efficient scheme designed specifically for smaller companies. No tax or NICs are due on the grant or exercise of a qualifying option under the EMI as long as the exercise price is not less than fair market value at the date of grant. On sale of the shares acquired through an EMI share option scheme, gains will be taxed as capital gains. At the end of 2012, the UK government indicated it would extend capital gains tax entrepreneurs' relief to shares acquired through the exercise of EMI share options. Legislation would extend the relief to EMI shares by removing the 5% minimum shareholding requirement and allowing the 12 month minimum holding requirement to commence on the date the option is granted. This measure applies to shares acquired on or after April 6, 2012 that are disposed of on or after April 6, 2013. These measures are guaranteed to make EMI schemes more popular and will increase work in this area for practitioners. EMI Share Options: The Complete Guide is a highly practical book with an extensive use of questions and answers, examples, flowcharts, and tables to illustrate the key concepts.
