Larger employers - last chance on EMI
The changes in the Finance Bill will preclude many companies that currently qualify for EMI from benefiting in the future. This will not apply to options granted prior to the date of Royal Assent. As this change is likely to take effect from mid-July, this is a one-off opportunity that should not be missed.
After Royal Assent, companies (or groups) will not be able to grant options unless, on the date of grant, they have fewer than 250 employees.
Companies affected by this change who want an EMI scheme, or want to issue further options under an existing scheme, must take speedy action to ensure that they are not too late.
