Christina H. Medland presents Tax-Effective Stock-Based Compensation
September 19 & 20, 2012, Toronto | 10th Taxation of Executive Compensation and Retirement
Mandatory option expensing, market uncertainties and shareholder pressure have prompted many companies to reexamine the real costs and benefits of stock options. In Canada, there is an increased use of restricted, performance and deferred-share vehicles, but many companies have not eliminated stock options. This session will examine key considerations when designing a tax-effective stock option plan for senior executives and the 2010 Federal budget proposals that impose additional challenges for equity-based compensation.
Christina Medland, Meridian Compensation Partners, has been practicing in the area of executive and director compensation for more than 20 years. Her practice is focused on executive compensation design with an emphasis on incentive programs.
In their efforts to help attract and retain key executives, some companies have turned to the use of supplemental executive retirement plans (SERPs). But in order to be effective, one must take into account the numerous tax considerations.
