Executive Incentives – Design, legal & taxation

Critical to the success of any organisation is a well-functioning and engaged executive team. 

A key component of achieving this is ensuring an equitable remuneration strategy that is both fair to the executive and adheres to good corporate governance principles.  In the current marketplace, a good mix between cash and equity-based incentives has become more important than ever, especially when dealing with the executive team.

As AGM season is fast approaching, now is an opportune time to revisit and re-evaluate existing packages or implement a new component to an existing incentive offering. This session will provide an overview of the current environment, common issues that may arise, tips on getting the right mix, and the tax effectiveness of the various equity alternatives.

Join Shane Entriken, Partner at Piper Alderman, and Peter Hills, Partner at Grant Thornton, as they discuss:

  • the legal landscape for compensation and incentives;
  • key legal considerations in introducing or changing reward and remuneration arrangements;
  • critical incentive scheme design considerations; and
  • key taxation issues of the various alternatives.
