How do I issue shares to future investors or employees?
Issuing shares in a company generally requires that you comply with federal and state securities laws, or comply with valid exemptions from such laws.
In many cases, there are straightforward exemptions for founders. For others, exemptions may require filings or may not even exist.
When it comes to investors, startups will generally work with their counsel to identify and comply with applicable state and federal securities laws or exemptions and limit the issuance to those investors who would be considered "accredited investors" and/or "sophisticated investors".
For future employees and consultants, startups will generally work with their counsel to put in place an option plan that meets securities law and tax requirements.
PLEASE CONSULT YOUR LEGAL/TAX ADVISORS FOR ADVICE.
