In this interview Marc Harris chats with John Manis of Evelyn Partners to discuss selling a business to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT). In light of recent changes to ‘Business Asset Disposal Relief’ EOTs have become increasingly popular and it’s not difficult to see why; they’re 100% free of Capital Gains Tax, less expensive than a trade sale, easier to manage with little chances of falling through and they’re great for all the employees who’ll be left better off and feeling more engaged with the business.
