Tax implications of equity-based compensation
Abstract: Equity-based compensation is a powerful tool for attracting, retaining and motivating executives and other employees. By rewarding recipients for their contributions to a business’s success, it aligns their interests with those of the company and provides them with an incentive to stay. This article explores several equity-based compensation options. A sidebar explains how companies that aren’t prepared to share equity with employees can still enjoy the benefits of equity-based compensation.
