What is an employee ownership trust?

Posted on

An employee ownership trust (EOT) is a form of employee benefit trust with two tax reliefs.  Company owners selling more than 50% ownership to an EOT will be exempt from capital gains tax, and a company more than 50% owned by an EOT can pay its employees income tax-free bonuses.
