The Boston Scientific Ltd Employee Share Participation Scheme (ESPS) provides an opportunity for employees to invest a percentage of your bonus and a portion of your salary, tax free, to buy BSC shares.
Enrolment for 2021 is now closed - If you have signed up, deductions will be made from your bonus payments and salary forgone will be deducted from your February - July payroll. Investment in shares will take place on 30th April and 31st October 2021.
If you are participating in the ESPS this year, unlike GESOP, your 2021 investment % selection does not carry forward so you will need to re-enroll to participate in the 2022 scheme during Open Enrolment in November 2021.
