Orchestra Employee Share Scheme

Features & benefits

Orchestra is a valued partner in establishing and administering your chosen scheme. We make operating a successful scheme easier with easy-to-use administration tools, and full transparency for participating employees.

Cloud-based record keeping

Create an easy to manage cloud-based share and options registry to simplify compliance, record keeping and reporting for your ESS. Orchestra also integrates with the NZ Companies Office, creating a streamlined single source of truth.

Easy-to-use setup

Provide an easy to understand process for creating and managing your scheme's vesting schedules and conditions. This is vital for an employee to fully benefit from any ESS scheme.

Employee transparency

Cloud-based accounts for all employees to view their portfolio and access any information you release to them. Future product updates will also highlight value increases in share parcels.

Organised documents and information

Secure storage of documentation and information updates, including Offer Letters for each participant. Future product development will include E-Signing for grants.

Share Trading events

Online share trading/auctions allow employees to periodically buy and sell their shares amongst themselves, if permitted by the parent company.

Diluted scenario view

Orchestra’s ESS module will easily demonstrate dilutionary effects of ESOPs and other ESS schemes on existing shareholders.

Valuation tools

Coming soon

Orchestra will also offer a valuation tool to support businesses with their IFRS reporting requirements.
