Manifesto 2014: Fiscal incentives are indispensable prequisites Worldwide practical evidence and a wide range of academic research support the view that a proper legal environment and the provision of suitable fiscal incentives are indispensable prerequisites for any policy truly aiming the development of employee share ownership.

New fiscal incentives pave the way to new encouraging development, while political decisions reducing or cutting such incentives always lead to regression.
