Equity-based compensation is often essential to recruiting and retaining key employees in closely held companies. Whether through the use of stock options, restricted stock, appreciation rights or other instruments and techniques, incentive compensation aligns the financial interests of key employees with the entity. Incentive compensation also often has the benefit of not requiring the immediate outlay of cash. Depending on the instruments used, equity-based compensation may also help defer tax recognition. Compensation in LLCs takes on different forms but functions similarly. This program will provide you with a practical guide to equity-based incentive compensation in closely held companies.
