Gain an insight into how employee ownership structures work.
Kevin Uphill, chairman of Avondale Corporate, will discuss why an increasing number of shareholders are opting to structure their exits in this way.
The sale of a business to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) is a great exit strategy as unlike management buyouts, the sale can be vendor-led and reward your team.
Structured correctly, an EOT can also secure full commercial value at 0% Capital Gains Tax - yet many shareholders and financial professionals are not familiar with the benefits and mechanics of this sale and ownership structure.
The virtual roundtable will focus on:
Which companies and shareholders an EOT structure would suit.
Why EOTs benefit employees, shareholders, and the wider community.
How to maximise exit value for shareholders whilst rewarding and providing continuity for the team.
How EOTs create a legacy, maintain integrity, and enhance culture.
The benefits of an advisor/vendor-led structure and sale with light due diligence.
How shareholders can step back over time if required.
Controlling succession with no third-party tension.
How EOTs can build a better business model, be more productive and create stronger team engagement.
Securing 0% Capital Gains Tax on the sale of shares.
