You are hereHome / Is now the time to grant Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) options?
Given the current climate, now may be a good time to consider granting EMI options to employees and approaching HMRC to agree a valuation.
As a business owner, you may also have more time on your hands to consider the benefits of implementing such a scheme.
Response times from HMRC have been surprisingly quick, some ‘discounts’ have been considered and accepted by HMRC on recent share transactions that take account of the current economic climate.
HMRC have extended the normal 90-day period for which valuations are valid, to 120 days, due to ‘uncertainties surrounding the coronavirus’.
