MODERN APPROACHES FOR EQUITY TO PAYROLL RECONCILIATIONS
Webcast

The SEC's T+1 stock settlement compliance date is May 28th, requiring 24 hours to issue shares to employees after a vest or option exercise. Navigating data transfer between stock-based compensation equity programs and payroll was already challenging—with this tight turnaround, companies and brokers are at a heightened risk for errors, which could lead to tax-related fines and employee dissatisfaction. The solution? Implement strong reconciliation processes and controls between the HR, Payroll, and brokerage platforms.

As your company grows, so will the volume of vesting and exercising stock and options. Having an automated system that performs reconciliations with accuracy and timeliness is critical.

KEY LEARNING POINTS: 

  • Challenges when there are gaps in reconciliation controls
  • Benefits of reconciliation processes and reporting
  • Pros and cons of common reconciliation tools and approaches, including spreadsheets, automation scripts, and custom applications

Despite a slight reduction in the gender pay gap in the UK, a PwC report indicates it will take 45 years to close at the current rate of change. The mean hourly pay gap dropped from 12.2% to 11.8% between 2022-23 and the median pay gap fell from 9.2% to 9.1%, but since 2017, the average gender pay gap has only reduced by 1.6%. Experts stress the need for immediate action from employers to address systemic barriers and promote gender pay equity, while acknowledging that societal factors also contribute to the persistence of the gap.
