Sell tax free to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT)

As an alternative to a Management Buy-Out or Management Buy-In, shareholders might consider selling their shares to an EOT. A sale of greater than 50% of the company to an EOT will be Capital Gains Tax free if all relevant conditions are met. An EOT is run for the benefit of all employees and the company can award tax free bonuses to employees of up to £3,600 per annum.

As always, the key to successful tax planning is to seek advice as early as possible.
