Executive and employee incentives

An employee benefit trust (EBT) is an effective way to motivate and incentivise employees, aligning the employee’s interests to those of the company’s shareholders. These arrangements are a critical component in the employer and employee relationship and, when used efficiently, can enhance and optimise performance.

Jersey’s tax framework and modern trust law makes it an attractive jurisdiction in which to locate an EBT arrangement. TMF Jersey is experienced in administering EBTs for companies based in single and multiple jurisdictions.
