Tax concessions to enhance the attractiveness of employee share schemes have long been a feature of the Australian start-up environment. That attractiveness was severely eroded by amendments that were introduced in 2009 but further amendments in 2015 have arguably reversed many of the negative aspects of the 2009 amendments. This paper looks at the history of employee share schemes in Australia and examines the potential effectiveness of the 2015 amendments in reinstating them as a useful recruiting and retention tool for business employers, especially in the start-up phase of their businesses.
