Long term incentive plans (LTIP) are provided by many companies and reward employees for reaching specific goals, whilst also supporting the retention of key executives and employees in a highly competitive work environment. All the while, long term incentive plans also allow businesses to attain long-term growth. Despite the many benefits, navigating which plans work best for a given company and their employees can be very complex. There are many factors to consider, including cost and income tax, as well as global tax and social security obligations for global employees working in different countries. This is then complicated further by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and an increased emphasis on remote working.

In this webinar, Kenny Ransquin, Partner, Global Employer Services, RSM Belgium; Carolina Rotatori, Partner, Global Employer Services and Private Clients, RSM Brazil; and Frank Casciaro, Director, Global Employer Services, RSM Canada will help you navigate this complex environment, leading you through the key issues, the key benefits, and how these plans have been affected in recent years. With more companies vying for skilled talent, long term incentive plans have become a popular way to attract such talent to join their business. You will be guided through the more common Long Term Incentive Plan structures, whilst also learning the key considerations in designing these plans.
