Employee Ownership Trusts Webinar
Date & Time: 20/02/2020 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Employee trusts have been used by employers for a number of purposes to benefit their employees. Such trusts (employee benefit trusts being one example) have been around for a number of years. The UK tax legislation has always given employee trusts tax advantages where they are implemented to genuinely benefit a company’s wider employee base. Employee Ownership Trusts (EOT) were introduced in April 2014 to make it easier for business owners to pass their companies to their employees.
Who might be interested in an EOT?
- Any owners of owner managed businesses who are at a stage where they’re thinking of selling their business and they would like their employees to take the business forward.
- Business owners who want to realise some of their capital value from their company with a sale into their EOT.
- Owners of owner managed businesses who are looking to sell but who want to protect for example their family business by avoiding a sale to a large multinational conglomerate.
- Knowledge-based companies where the pyramid structure between employees, management and owners is fairly flat. Such businesses as architects, those in advertising, design, publishing, fashion or music, quantity surveyors, management consultancies, healthcare companies, engineering companies.
