From a corporate perspective, the qualifying conditions for CSOPs are relatively relaxed. There are no restrictions on the gross assets of the company or group, nor on the number of employees that are able to work for them. Similarly, the type of business they operate makes no difference at all.
In other words, any company that wishes to do so, with the notable exception of a subsidiary company whose shares are not listed, is able to implement and benefit from the use of a CSOP.
