RM2 has successfully implemented share schemes for more than 1,300 clients. Unlike other share plan advisers, we are not just lawyers or accountants – we are true specialists covering every aspect of share scheme advice including tax, company law, trust law, accounting, tax valuations and (importantly) we offer full trustee and administration services as well. Being true specialists we can easily work along side your existing advisers. We are accredited to ISO 9001 for the design, administration and compliance of employee share schemes. We usually offer an initial consultation without cost or obligation.
You will need Board approval and, depending on the nature of the scheme and any existing permissions you may have, you may require shareholder approval as well. RM2 will provide all the necessary Board and shareholder papers and ensure that all statutory filings are correctly made.
