Reward key employees for building your business
One of the easiest, best and relatively economical incentives to motivate valuable executives and employees is to give them ownership in your company through options to purchase shares of stock. Stock options are great for rewarding employees, contractors and other contributors to your business for their continued support, contributions and long-term commitment. They will feel the ownership, and enjoy the reward of staying the course and helping you to build your business.
Why stock options and not just shares?
If you gave your employees the actual shares now, they would be immediately liable for income tax based upon the value of the shares today. With stock options, you are promising them that they can buy shares in the future, based upon your share price today… since you haven’t actually paid them anything and therefore there would be no tax liability. So, stock options are the way to go.
