Tax for Employers & Executives
Working closely with our top ranked Employment team, we have extensive experience on advising on all aspects of reward and incentives from the design and implementation of equity and cash incentives to employment tax compliance.
Our work often has an international dimension and we regularly advise on the implications for internationally mobile employees.
Our client base ranges from small private businesses to listed multi-national companies across all sectors.
Whilst much of our work is acting for employers, we also have a strong reputation in advising senior executives. We can help them understand and assess the package they are being offered, whether on recruitment, during or on the termination of their employment or partnership, and can put forward alternatives which may be more beneficial to them from a tax perspective.
