BS Shareholder schemes

CSOP … SAYE … SIP … schemes to get shares into the hands of staff … to be avoided … because there are simply better ways to do it…

If you really need to know why …

SIP and SAYE must be offered to all employees on similar terms … yeah right

CSOP (the Company Share Option Plan) used to be the scheme of choice for companies like yours … but it’s bobbins compared to the newer and funkier and government favoured EMI (just one eg …CSOP caps the share values at £30k … under EMI it’s £250k)

(See EMI … Growth Shares … and EMI v GROWTH SHARES)
