Join us on Crowdcast to hear the latest developments with NZ employee share schemes.

We will explain the new tax rules that came into force on 1 April 2018, including why these rules mean that for most startups an ESOP (employee share option scheme) will be the best choice.

Once we’ve covered the basics, we’ll walk you through the creation of a simple ESOP using our nifty ESOP doc maker. This will have you setting up your own ESOP in no time (or getting a jump start on your lawyers at least!).

Our presenters, Andrew and Fiona, have helped scores of NZ tech companies wrangle their employee share option schemes and other employee incentivisation arrangements. They also look after the Simmonds Stewart ESOP templates and doc makers. Andrew advised MBIE on the employee share scheme exemption in the Financial Markets Conduct Act, and Inland Revenue on the new employee share scheme tax rules.
