Session 24.1: Retaining and rewarding employees post pandemic

SME Stream

For many employees, the ability to work from home long term can provide opportunities for alternative employment in an increasingly digital and online world; this presents employers with the challenge of retaining employees.

This session will consider the taxation implications of various tools available for employers to reward and retain employees including:

  • Employee performance rights and phantom equity/bonus arrangements
  • Recent changes to traditional ESS/ESOP arrangements
  • Start-up concessions, and
  • Alternative non-ESS arrangements such as loan funded or flowering plans.
