Thank you for your response
The agreement drawn up by a solicitor acting for the company at the time clearly states SHARE OPTION AGREEMENT, where I can purchase a set amount of shares for 10p after five years.
How can I be sure ?
I am buying 326 shares at 10p so well below the threshold
I guess I can insist on the purchase as per the agreement, is there any way that I could end up with a tax liability other than from the sale of the company at some point in the future ?
