Fantastic - the UK government realise the worth of private companies.  However, the burden of compliance remains great.  A particular area which is heavily burdened is the awarding of shares to employees where the tax consequences are complicated and cost prohibitive for some.  I think we need some follow through.

Ed Miliband has pledged to force businesses to pay interns at least the minimum wage, if they are kept on for more than a month. The debate as to whether interns should be paid has been around for a while. Miliband has brought things to a head by promising financial protection for interns. The question is does it make sense?The advocates for change argue that the present system favours the rich. In essence, the rich can afford to work for free, p...

Please come and join the Gannons team for our free seminar 
This seminar will look at how to deal with a business break up.If you are in business with others (whether a limited company, an LLP or a partnership), the likelihood is that sooner or later one or more is going to want to leave.  If everything is agreed and amicable, then there will be no problem.  But how can you be sure in advance this is what will happen?  There is the potential for serious disagreements in a business break-up and these can f...

Proof, if needed, that the UK is a great place to do business.  Whilst austerity has to continue as we are not yet out of debt, we need a rally of general pride in our country.

The recognition of the worth of small businesses is good.  The next step is to loosen the burdens. Companies who award shares to employees out perform those who do not yet the tax laws around employee incentives are punitive.  When can we expect some follow through?

UK litigation and dispute resolution is not for all lawyers. It takes a special mind set to be a successful litigator and for those who are not careful there are many traps to fall into.  For example, liquidated damages, seems simple enough but it is not.  We are a boutique London commercial law firm able to handle your conflicts who will not steal the client.  If you have an issue why not speak to  #gannons    
Alex Kleanthous explores the recent case of Unaoil Ltd and when the courts will and will not uphold an agreed liquidated damages clause.

In the UK many have heard of tax efficient EMI options and know they work well for many private companies.  What you may not know is what can be done if EMI is not an option?  There are alternatives as #staceycallaghan     explains for you.
Stacey Callaghan explains what employee share options are available if EMI is not an option. Employee shareholder shares, share awards and flowering shares.
