Lex has developed a fiscally-attractive alternative to traditional option schemes: the Employee Participation Structure.
In this employee participation structure, the employees become indirect shareholders in your company (if desired, without voting rights). This sophisticated combination of shareholding and debt ratios protects your employees from becoming subject to high tax liabilities.
