An employee stock purchase plan is one of the best ways to incentivize employees and make them feel invested in your company’s performance. But not all plans are the same. Each company must carefully determine which approach to equity compensation makes sense for its goals. This is precisely the type of experience-based guidance that AST has offered for over 40 years.

We help our clients build the best plans for their companies, communicating clearly and often with their employee shareholders, and helping them derive maximum value from this generous benefit.

An employee stock plan provides a convenient way for employees to purchase your company’s stock through payroll deductions. AST’s expertise includes administration of both tax-qualified section 423 plans and nonqualified plans, as well as non-US plans such as SAYE schemes. We work as your company’s partner to develop and administer your plan, with careful attention to ensuring that our solution offers the flexibility and customization that you and your employees require.

Every AST-administered plan is based on innovation and efficiency made possible through technology. We maintain a proprietary technology platform – designed with our customers’ unique objectives in mind– that can be adapted to meet your specific needs.
