As employees become more mobile and companies increasingly operate both in Europe and globally, the need to expand share plans internationally increases daily. Equity Incentives, backed by local advisers in each country, can advise UK companies with employees based overseas and UK subsidiaries of overseas companies on the operation of international plans.

It is not only tax law that needs to be considered when share plans are being introduced overseas. Other areas on which we can advise include:

  • securities laws
  • employment laws
  • data protection regulations 
  • translation requirements 
  • communication requirements
  • company law and regulatory issues; and 
  • the tax treatment of both the company and the employees overseas. 

For examples of how other companies have expanded share plans to include overseas employees, please see our Case Studies section.
