Plan for the Issuance of Equity Compensation in a New Country
We have created country-specific outlines that describe the key tax, social security and reporting requirements for both the company and employee for equity awards (including Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) and Stock Options).
The information contained in the summaries reflects the law at the time of preparation (or update). The outlines provide only a general discussion of the subjects covered. Information discussed in them is only meant to provide the reader with general information on the main issues to consider in the relevant countries. You should not rely on the summaries as professional advice. The potential tax consequences may vary greatly, depending on the design of your company’s equity, administration, and many other factors. If you would like to discuss your company’s needs and plans with respect to your employee share program, please use the contact a BDO Professional link located to the right.
