Double entry on share option

Company grants share option

Didn't find your answer?

A company has granted share options to non employees.

Because you have to have consideration, the non employees have paid for the share option, £1 in this case.

The double entry for the receipt of money is?

(No one in my firm knows.... they're all drawing a blank)

Debit Bank £1

Credit ...... ? £1

I don't suppose it matters too much but it has to go somewhere. Presumably costs were incurred in setting up the options. Set the £1 against those

Not "Other Income" then?

And in Yorkshire, when we say that'll do it means it'll more than do!

Can life get any better?

Was that the working (but rightly rejected) title of As Good As It Gets?

Well, another thing I've learned this week ...
I took "Can life get any better?" to be rhetorical (as the answer is No); whereas I always thought "As Good As It Gets?" contains a wistful undertone (as realisation sinks in that the assumed 'better things' exist but will remain forever beyond the grasp of the speaker). So not really the same thing at all.
Except that all googled 'meanings' agree with your belief that they are one and the same thing!

Oh. The point of my comment was that they weren't.

I'm gonna agree with you and say google is wrong. It does happen.

Did not Macmillan encapsulate both rhetoric and wistful undertone when informing the electorate that you've never had it so good?

Hmm, nice try but really only works if he'd asked it as a question (which as any politician learns on day one is not a good idea when addressing the electorate - as, like this forum, you can't predict the answers nor be sure which are serious)!

Instead, by declaring it as fact, he delivered every politician's dream ... a phrase that goes down in history. Why? Because it manages to be an overt paean to the good fortune of everyone to be living in such bountiful times - but incorporates an almost silent threat that it won't last if people don't do the 'right' thing ("vote for me")!

Apparently SuperMac borrowed the phrase from the US Democrat party, who used it as their slogan during the fifties.

Could they have made it any plainer, or is that as plain as politics gets?

+1

Company has sold the right to subscribe for shares at a given price. Unless there is some other obligation on the parties, it's just income.
