  • How to incentivise employees in a tax efficient manner by means of share awards.
  • How to ensure departing employees do not incur unexpected tax charges because of shares being reacquired for prices above tax market value.
  • What values to return for unquoted shares for Capital Gains Tax (including 31 March 1982 rebasing) or for Inheritance Tax or Stamp Duty purposes.
