Young technology companies traditionally use equity in their business as part of an employee’s remuneration. This allows them to compete with larger businesses that may offer a higher salary and is used as a cultural mechanism to ensure the entire team shares in the success (or otherwise) of the business.

Tweaks to Australia’s employee share scheme arrangements would allow startups and scale-ups to more easily provide equity to all of their employees.
