http://www.nelsonroberts.com/ Subscribe for more: http://bit.ly/2wWJaqc Today, more and more companies are issuing stock options to their employees because this ties employee compensation to the success of the company. I am going to cover the basic taxation of two standard types of options: Incentive Stock Options or ISOs and Nonqualified Stock Options. The main advantage of an ISO is favorable tax treatment; however, there are holding period requirements which must be met. An employee must sell the stock at least two years from the date of grant and one year from the date of exercise in order to have long-term capital treatment on the appreciation. Furthermore, there are Alternative Minimum Tax adjustments at date of exercise and date of sale. For example, let’s say 1,000 ISOs are granted with an exercise price of $10. As long as this is higher than the fair market value of the stock, there will be no taxable income at the date of grant. The employee waits one year to exercise the ISOs while the stock is at $20 resulting in an AMT adjustment of $10,000. One year from the date of exercise, the employee can sell those shares at $30 a share and will receive $20,000 taxed at long-term capital gain tax rates and a negative AMT adjustment of $10,000. If the holding period requirements are not met, the sale is known as a disqualifying disposition and any appreciation is taxed at ordinary income tax rates and the AMT adjustment is reversed. This is essentially how a Nonqualified Stock Option functions. There is no holding period requirement thus all appreciation is taxed at ordinary income tax rates and there are no AMT adjustments. While the preferential tax treatment of ISOs is attractive, there are many factors to consider such as cash required up front to purchase the options, the AMT adjustment potentially resulting in higher taxes in one year and uncertainty of the stock price after the holding period requirement. I encourage you to reach out to a financial advisor or tax professional about your individual situation. Video Produced by Evan Nelson

EMI share option schemes - In a nutshell, expert advice from Jerry Davison http://in.a-nut.sh/TheMillConsultancy . Don't miss new In a nutshell videos... subscribe by clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=BEInaNutshell Find out more about this video... ........................................ A share option contract gives someone, usually an employee, the right to buy a set number of a company’s shares at a set price at some point in the future. The aim is to give the option holder the opportunity to make a profit when the business is eventually sold. Option schemes are ideal for incentivising employees to stay with the company as it grows, over the longer term, and share in a successful exit. For example, Carrie is granted 10,000 options today, priced at £1 per share. Five years later the company is sold, for £5 per share. She buys her shares for £10,000, sells for £50,000, and makes a £40,000 profit. When the shares are sold, the downside of course is that tax will be payable on the profit. An employee could be liable for income tax and national insurance of up to 50% or more. Luckily for employees an excellent Government scheme called the EMI, or enterprise management incentive, can save a huge amount of tax. It means that option holders should not have to pay any income tax or NI, and instead when they sell their shares they pay only 10% capital gains tax. In Carrie’s case, normally she might have to pay over £20,000 in tax on her £40,000 profit; under EMI she pays only £4,000. EMI option schemes are very flexible - for example you could designate the options as ‘exit only’ such that the employees can only buy their shares on the date that the company is sold, or alternatively they can buy them in slices over a few years. You can grant options to selected staff such as key managers, or to a more widespread number. To qualify for EMI, the company must have fewer than 250 employees and option holders must work for the company for at least 25 hours a week.

In this video, we look at Stock options and Share-based compensation in detail. We will also see How a Stock options Agreement works and many more. 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐁𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Stock options allow the employees to buy certain shares at a predetermined price. These options are allocated only for specific employees. These options are different from other options. 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐚 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐀𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐬? ---------------------------------------------------------------- We will take an example, lets say Sr executive of the company to whom the company has given the stock options of around 3000 shares. And the company will allow him to exercise his options only after 3 years. That shows how a company can use the vesting period as a motivation for the employee to stay with company. 𝐓𝐚𝐱𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 ------------------------------------------ Mainly there are 2 types of Stock Options. They are: 𝟭. 𝗡𝗼𝗻 𝗤𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀: These options are also referred as Non-Statutory Stock Options. These options are open for taxability. In simple words we can say these options are taxable. 𝟮. 𝗜𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗦𝘁𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀: These options are also referred as Incentive share options or qualified share options. But these options get tax benefits. That means no tax is applicable for these options. 𝐄𝐱𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐍𝐨𝐧 𝐐𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐢𝐞𝐝 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐨𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 ---------------------------------------------------------------- Lets think that a employee gets non qualified stock options. And this option allows him to buy 200 shares of his company at a predetermined price i.e of $35. Now, the day the employee exercises his option, he will be eligible for tax. And the market price is $40 at the time of exercise. Now the tax will be based on the difference between the predetermined price & price at which the option holder exercises the option. In this case it is $(40-35)*200 = 1000 To know more about Stock Based Compensation, you can go this 𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞: https://www.wallstreetmojo.com/share-stock-based-compensation-expense/

Stock Options and RSUs are part of some compensation plans as an incentive to help the company succeed. As these asset vehicles vests, the amount of stock you hold in your company grows. There are real money assets and should be treated as part of your total portfolio. Most would agree that you should have less than 10% of your total invest-able portfolio in one single company. If you let the assets vest over time, this may grow over sized and is generally a good idea to reduce the exposure and invest in other areas with the cash generated.

Tax Information for Stock Market Investors | Stocks, Options, and Dividends In this video, I will provide the tax information and how you get more knowledges about taxes. I made the video on several parts and the first part is about stock taxes and the rules about it. One of the other parts include option taxes and I explain as well that information. Lastly, the last thing is about dividend taxes and even though it might seem simple, it becomes a little complicated. The video Is about taxes for investors and I explained some confusion they might had. Basically, the video is about tax basics and some of the advantages. Taxes on stock were explained regarding the long and short term investments. You can start managing individually the stocks and taxes and make strategic moves. In addition, taxes on option work very much the same way. For example with taxes and option you can make the same transactions and get the same result. Now for taxes on dividend is a little bit different. The reason is that taxes and dividends play different since dividends are paid on certain dates. So, I ended up covering most of the tax basic for stock market investors and how you can maximize your profits. I also gave several examples regarding short term capital gain. Also, I provided some examples on long term capital gain. I also covered the obscure topic of qualified dividend and what makes you qualify for that. Rules are important. That is one of the reason why I gave the wash sale rule since the IRS implemented that rule to avoid tax holes. At the end of the video, I gave several tax tips for individual investors about the stocks, options and dividends. I also mentioned several tax deferred plans and programs you might get some tax breaks. Make sure that you shares this video Tax information for stock market investors if you found it helpful, I’d appreciate it.

What is INCENTIVE STOCK OPTION? What does INCENTIVE STOCK OPTION mean? INCENTIVE STOCK OPTION meaning - INCENTIVE STOCK OPTION definition - INCENTIVE STOCK OPTION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Incentive stock options (ISOs), are a type of employee stock option that can be granted only to employees and confer a U.S. tax benefit. ISOs are also sometimes referred to as incentive share options or Qualified Stock Options by IRS . The tax benefit is that on exercise the individual does not have to pay ordinary income tax (nor employment taxes) on the difference between the exercise price and the fair market value of the shares issued (however, the holder may have to pay U.S. alternative minimum tax instead). Instead, if the shares are held for 1 year from the date of exercise and 2 years from the date of grant, then the profit (if any) made on sale of the shares is taxed as long-term capital gain. Long-term capital gain is taxed in the U.S. at lower rates than ordinary income. Although ISOs have more favorable tax treatment than non-ISOs (aka non-statutory stock option (NSO) or non-qualified stock option (NQO or NQSO)), they also require the holder to take on more risk by having to hold onto the stock for a longer period of time if the holder is to receive optimal tax treatment. However, even if the holder disposes of the stock within a year, it is possible that there will still be marginal tax deferral value (as compared to NQOs) if the holding period, though less than a year, straddles the ending of the taxpayer's taxable reporting period. Note further that an employer generally does not claim a corporate income tax deduction (which would be in an amount equal to the amount of income recognized by the employee) upon the exercise of its employee's ISO, unless the employee does not meet the holding-period requirements. But see Coughlan, Section 174 R&E Deduction Upon Statutory Stock Option Exercise, 58 Tax Law. 435 (2005). With NQSOs, on the other hand, the employer is always eligible to claim a deduction upon its employee's exercise of the NQSO. Additionally, there are several other restrictions which have to be met (by the employer or employee) in order to qualify the compensatory stock option as an ISO. For a stock option to qualify as ISO and thus receive special tax treatment under Section 421(a) of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code"), it must meet the requirements of Section 422 of the Code when granted and at all times beginning from the grant until its exercise. The requirements include: The option may be granted only to an employee (grants to non-employee directors or independent contractors are not permitted), who must exercise the option while he/she is an employee or no later than three (3) months after termination of employment (unless the option holder is disabled, in which case this three-month period is extended to one year. In case of death the option can be exercised by the legal heirs of the deceased until the expiration date). The option must be granted under a written plan document specifying the total number of shares that may be issued and the employees who are eligible to receive the options. The plan must be approved by the stockholders within 12 months before or after plan adoption.

How to Calculate Income Tax on Stock Market Earning ? is the most confusing topic for the taxpayers. Some of the income tax rules are not clear especially treatment of capital gains a non-speculative business income in case of frequent delivery based buying and selling. In layman terms, the stock market earning can be divided into 2 parts i.e. delivery and non-delivery based trading. The non-delivery based trading comprises trading in Intraday, Futures & Options, BTST, and STBT. In delivery based trading there are 2 types of tax i.e. long term capital gain tax and short term capital gain tax. The non-delivery based trading is of two types i.e. speculative business income and non-speculative business income. The speculative business income is basically from Intraday trading. It is taxed as per your tax slab. Non-Speculative business income consists of Futures and options, BTST and STBT. It is imp to calculate the turnover to decide the audit requirement. The investors i.e. in case of delivery based buying and selling, the gain is treated as capital gains and you need to file ITR-2. In case of non-delivery based buying and selling, the gains/profit are treated as business income. You need to file ITR-3. If you liked this video, You can "Subscribe" to my YouTube Channel.

http://www.nelsonroberts.com/ Subscribe for more: http://bit.ly/2wWJaqc If you’re compensated in company stock, the alphabet soup of ISOs, NQSOs, RSUs, ESPP can be confusing to say the least. Today, I’m going to cover Restricted Stock Units or RSUs which have become a common way for established companies to compensate their employees, however, many people don’t understand the tax implications and risks associated. RSUs, also called Stock Awards, tie a component of employee compensation to the success of the stock. They are subject to a vesting schedule which provides an incentive for an employee to stay with the company as unvested shares are forfeited at the termination of employment. For example, Lindsey is granted 400 RSUs with an annual vesting schedule of 25% of the grant. At the end of the first year, she receives 100 shares, or one quarter of the shares granted. An additional 100 shares vest each year thereafter. If she were to leave the company any unvested shares would be forfeited. At the time of vesting, the RSU shares become common shares and are transferred to Lindsey. The market value of those RSU shares is taxed to her just like ordinary income. The company will often withhold a portion of the vested RSUs to pay the tax liability based on her withholding rates. If she holds the shares, her tax basis will be the prevailing market value per share at the date of vesting. Once sold, the proceeds will be subject to capital gains holding period and tax rates. Many people don’t understand that the decision to hold on to RSUs after vesting is the equivalent of a decision to purchase stock in the company at the current price. For Lindsey, the exposure to her company in the form of both employment and future RSU vesting may be sufficient for her financial objectives and diversification may be prudent. I encourage you to consult a financial advisor about your individual situation. Nameless Warning - You're Worth It: http://youtu.be/dtHli5Y2E14

Geoff Zimmerman, CFP, Senior Advisor for Mosaic Financial Partners, Inc., discusses the basics of stock options in this recording from a webinar hosted by Mosaic Financial Partners. To qualify for long-term capital gains treatment, a stock option must be held for at least 2 years and at least one year since the option has been exercised. This is in line with the fact that any stock or equity holding must be held for at least a year to be classified as a capital gain for tax purposes. When a company issues ISOs to an employee, the employee must wait until the units are vested before exercising them and selling them. They should keep these rules about holding periods in mind in order to maintain a lower tax rate. If an investor is using an option hedging strategy, when they sell and cover options, the short-term sale will be classified as regular income. Regular income taxes are usually higher than capital gains taxes, especially for higher income brackets.

This one minute video by Theresa Oatman provides the basics on what employees and employers need to know about a common benefit, incentive stock options. This benefit can affect your taxes differently depending on when you cash in the shares. If the shares are held at least two years from the day they are granted, there are no income tax consequences for the employee. The game changes if the shares are cashed in sooner. In this case, the gain is taxed as regular income on their yearly W2 form.

Geoff Zimmerman, CFP, Senior Advisor for Mosaic Financial Partners, Inc., discusses the basics of stock options in this recording from a webinar hosted by Mosaic Financial Partners. In this video the discussion revolves around what are Incentive Stock Options, also known as ISOs, and how they differ from Non-Qualified Stock Options in definition and tax treatment. These were very common during the high tech boom of the late 1990’s. The main difference between these restricted stock units and Non-Qualified Stock Options is the way they are treated for tax purposes. When using the Ordinary Method of tax calculation : • Bargain Element is not taxed • No mandatory payroll withholding • Qualified for Long Term Capital Gains tax, with prescribed holding period When using the Alternative Minimum Tax to compute: • Bargain Element is taxed as income • Payroll taxes apply Remember, the Bargain Element, is the difference between the strike price and the market value of the underlying stock. Alternative Minimum Tax is a parallel method of tax computation. Which form of tax calculation you use depends upon a variety of factors.
