Vision

Now, as a business owner, you can get things started. It’s all about your vision, your options, your tax benefits, discovering what’s involved in the process and fleshing it out to ensure you achieve what you want.

The main reason business owners consider employee ownership is because they are looking for a solution for business succession. If you are looking ahead to the time when you will want to retire, the traditional options open to you have their downsides. You could sell to a competitor but this is unattractive and most trade sales often result in disruption to the company and potential relocation affecting jobs and customer relationships.
Then there is the option of a management buyout which would keep ownership within the firm, but in reality, only defer the issue of succession as at some point, that management team will also be looking for an exit.
Fortunately there is another option that delivers what you need, what the business needs and what your employees need.
