Hi there i have some cash to put to one side from a bonus. I was granted my bonus as share options two years ago, they have now become available to cash in, and i wish to put them into a long term savings option. I would like them to be protected from inflation mainly and get a decent return. Also they were granted two years ago so am not sure about the tax implications, certainly there be some CGT on gains.
In feb next year i'll also like to add further to these saving and ideas?

Andrew Diver answered 2 Years ago at 12:48There are plenty of variants of share options. Approved options need to be held for three years before encashment. But EIS options have no minimum term. Your company should provide some guidance as to the tax treatment. Happy to steer you in the right direction on the tax if you let me have more details though.
As for the investment return, not really my area I am afraid.
