Employee Ownership Trust

Employee-Owner Trusts (EOTs) are structures that transfer all or part of a company’s ownership and control to employees. They can be used by shareholders to exit their business and incentivise the workforce.

Qualification criteria must be considered for using an EOT, but there are also some considerable tax benefits for both the seller and the employees. However, EOTs are only for some businesses, and part of our work, together with your legal adviser, is to assess whether this structure is suitable for you and your business.

As a firm, we have assisted with several EOT transactions, with our work consisting of:

  • Assist in assessing whether this is suitable.
  • Consider the structure of the transaction and who will manage the EOT.
  • Work with your legal team to prepare the paperwork to execute.
  • Undertake the valuation of the company.
  • Where required, assist with the funding of the transaction.
