How do I know if my company is eligible to offer EMI options?

Your company must:

  • Not be under control of another company

  • Have gross assets of less than £30 million

  • Have less than 250 full-time employees

  • Be carrying out a qualifying trade (things like banking, legal and accountancy services, property development and farming are excluded trades)

Here’s an article that lays out the comprehensive requirements further.
