How does the EOT work in practice? Attend this webinar for an overview of the tax implications of the EOT.
Since its introduction in 2014, the Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) has proved to be a feasible exit option for many business owners. It’s a flexible option, and by making the right choices, you can meet the requirements for tax incentives and achieve the best results for the seller, company and employees.
Aimed at professional advisers, this session will let you hear directly from legal experts Douglas Roberts and Nimarta Cheema of TLT Ltd. They'll cover the following topics:
