Issuing shares can be a quite detailed process, with lots for you to decide and, sometimes, negotiate, with your investors.
This is an area where we definitely recommend involving the legal and the tax experts.
Tax will be particularly relevant to:
the incentives you can offer your investors
(See our guide to SEIS and EIS for more information on these particularly persuasive schemes)
the rights that you may offer your investors
Certain rights may invalidate tax reliefs that you're offering investors, tread with caution when you're offering rights beyond ordinary voting shares or any variations on those rights.
the rights that you may wish to offer to employees/those you want to incentivise to become employees
(See our guide to employee share option schemes also called 'Enterprise Management Incentive' (EMI) schemes.)
