Remuneration in the workplace is rarely straightforward and yet is high on the list of priorities of all concerned. A well-designed remuneration package is not just tax-efficient; it can motivate staff to achieve levels of performance that go far beyond the norm.

Our Pensions and Incentives team work closely with their employment, corporate, tax, regulatory and financial services colleagues to ensure you receive the most up-to-date advice provided in a way that is a clear, concise and easy to understand.

Pensions

Thanks to our ageing population, pensions are a hot topic for UK businesses. For the first time ever, all UK employers will shortly be compelled to contribute to their workers’ pension savings under the “auto enrolment” requirement.

Our pensions lawyers advise employers, trustees, investment managers and other practitioners, ensuring that the correct arrangements for each individual or corporate situation are applied.

Incentives

Our incentives lawyers advise clients on broad-based employee share schemes as well as short-term and long-term incentives. We also help introduce equity incentive arrangements, cash-settled bonuses and deferred incentives. We tailor our advice to ensure that any schemes we help to establish are best suited to our clients’ employee culture and are compatible with any share incentive arrangements that they already have in place.
