My startup issued shares last month and I’ve only just discovered the ESIC framework. What do I do?
This is not uncommon in the early-stage community. The laws impose an obligation to assess your ESIC status at the time new shares are issued. Sadly, shares issued without an ESIC certification at the time of investment will most likely not qualify.
