'We used Jerry Davison at The Mill Consultancy to set up our company EMI Scheme in 2013. Jerry was professional and friendly throughout, happy to answer all questions we passed his way. We are a startup and had very little knowledge of the workings of options schemes and share allocations, but Jerry was incredibly patient throughout the process. He also assisted us on some Articles amendments and other Companies House filings. The Mill Consultancy offer excellent value for money with no hidden costs. I would not hesitate to recommend them and hope to use them again in the future' - Croud Inc

Clients

Over the last decade or more we have worked with hundreds of clients. For example, we have set up over 200 EMI schemes in just the last three years. We want our clients to feel that they have received exemplary service, at a decent cost, such that they will always come back to us for more.

Clients are very special to us, and every client gets the best personal service possible. Just look at our testimonials. We explain everything to you so that a jungle of jargon is removed and you clearly understand the issues.

'Following first-round venture capital investment, we were advised to set up an EMI scheme to act as a mechanism whereby the interests of the executive board and management could be aligned with that of the investors. On commencing discussions with The Mill Consultancy, we quickly found a partner to work with us and our investors and found The Mill Consultancy to be patient and helpful during the formation of the scheme. We are now looking to implement an unapproved scheme and will not hesitate to use The Mill Consultancy to complete this work for us' - Aerothermal
