David Craddock Consultancy Services works with the client to develop the most appropriate scheme structure or, indeed, the most appropriate configuration of schemes if that is considered appropriate. It is sometimes the case that the scheme(s) work best when linked to an employee share trust. This is particularly relevant when succession planning or management buy-out arrangements are envisaged and it enables the sale of shares by existing shareholders under the capital gains tax regime.
