Expat Chat Ep 50 – Australian Expats Who Hold Employee Shares Beware
Welcome to the fiftieth episode of #Expatchat where we discuss the latest tax and financial issues affecting an #Australianexpat.
In today’s Expat Chat we discuss what Australian expats who hold employee shares in the companies that they currently or previously worked for need to be aware of when we’re experiencing volatility in the market like we are right now.
Generally speaking the majority of employees who work for tech companies receive part of their remuneration by why of RSU, ESOP’s, options and share appreciation rights which can be great when the market is running and your specific company share price is growing daily.
However over the last couple of months the tech sector has been one of the hardest hit and it has highlighted the risk of concentrating your wealth in one company or sector.
