How can we offer equity or stocks to our supported employees?
In the Netherlands, we offer you the option of issuing equity as either “nonemployee” or “employee” grants. Two conditions apply:
- For clients that issue equity as “nonemployee” grants, we do not facilitate withholding and payroll reporting unless the award is cash settled
- For clients that issue equity as “employee” grants, we do facilitate withholding and payroll reporting
How can we offer equity without signing a direct agreement between our supported employee and us?
We require you to directly issue the grant notice (i.e., side agreement) to your supported employee. This side agreement should not include any language that indicates a direct employer or employee relationship between you and your supported employee.
