Start-up recruiting key talent from larger competitors
Business sector: Technology
Shareholder/business goals and challenges
Needed to recruit key talent to drive business forwards but with limited cash resources
Target employees employed by larger businesses within the same sector who offer greater salary and bonuses
Start-up needed to offer share incentives to secure target employees with the prospect of very meaningful upside if the business succeeds
What we did and achieved
Set up a tax efficient
Enterprise Management Incentive option plan which was used as a key part of the company’s recruitment negotiations All new recruits joined the start-up company from larger more established competitors
New employees building up meaningful stakes in the business on meeting certain milestones but without impacting on control of founder shareholders
Buy-in cost negligible for new recruits, enabling them to acquire their shares over time and with ultimate returns taxed at only 10%
