You have questions, we have resources and answers.
Do I need to be a Carta customer to access Equity Advisory?

Yes. Equity Advisory is a subscription service that Carta offers cap table customers to educate their employees on equity basics and the tax implications of holding equity in a private company. Learn more about pricing and plans here .

What’s the difference between a tax advisor and a financial advisor?

A tax advisor helps with taxes, while a financial advisor helps manage or invest your money. A financial advisor can’t give tax advice, and a tax advisor can’t give financial advice—unless you’re working with someone who is credentialed as both. Learn more here .

Who is eligible for Equity Advisory?

Once you’ve signed up, your employees will automatically be able to book time with an Equity Tax Advisor—right from their existing Carta account.

How does Equity Advisory work with my cap table?

Equity Advisory is directly integrated with your cap table. The Equity Tax Advisors go into every session understanding each employee’s exact grant, strike price, and vesting status—along with accurate information about your company’s cap table and latest 409A valuation.
