Effective communications strategies, helping connect employees with the objectives of your organisation
Our communication consulting team offer expertise in user experience, content creation, graphic design and digital strategies. We analyse your employee population – the geographics, demographics, journey and preferences – so that the right communications solution can be delivered for your people, further supporting your in-house Human Resources and Communication teams.
Listening, leading and lobbying
As change agents and champions, we take an active role advocating on behalf of clients and shaping many of the industry changes that are proposed by the NZX, ASX, IRD and ATO. We lobbied the IRD in respect to recent legislative changes surrounding withholding and reporting, enabling us to be ready well before the change took effect.
Proven implementation and transition methodology
Plan implantation or transition of your plan administration to Computershare is much more than just data – our holistic approach confirms your current requirements, maps out the employee experience, puts forward new ideas to optimise employee interactions, and ensures that we reduce your effort via the service model we implement.

Managing payroll deductions and withholding tax
We’ll work directly with your payroll teams to coordinate payroll deductions and plan contributions. We can calculate withholding tax and route those funds anywhere around the world.
Managing designated persons and leavers
Your designated persons will be restricted from trading at certain points in your calendar. We can apply and enforce these blackout periods for you. We’ll also look after participants when they leave so they have a clear understanding of the options available to them.
Compliant solutions to hold and trade shares
Post-vesting, your employees may choose to hold onto their shares. Our global nominee service gives you a compliant solution for any jurisdiction where you have participants. Your employees will be able to manage these shares via our dedicated portal, EquatePlus.
Supporting meetings and dividends
Depending on your plan design, participants may be able to vote at your general meetings and receive dividends. We'll manage these events end-to-end, including all communications, votes, payments and reinvestments.

Certainty for all your plan events
There will be a number of major events throughout the lifecycle of your plan – this might include an offer and enrolment period, an award of shares or options or a vesting. These are the times when your share plan is most visible, so you need certainty that these events will run like clockwork. That's why we appoint one of our event delivery managers to own the project from beginning to end. They work in tandem with your relationship manager so that you can relax in the knowledge that important tasks such as share dealing, transfers and employee communications are in safe hands.
