Essex Business Podcast: 2020 – A game-changing year for employee ownership

by Kim Aaronricks

When a business-person wants to sell their company, there are many ways that this can be done. One of these is by forming an Employee Ownership Trust.

Interest in Employee Ownership Trusts (EOT) is thriving and the number of employee-owned businesses in the UK is growing at an annual rate of ten per cent.

We talk to Lisa Hayward, Head of Employee Incentives at  Birketts , about the legal side of EOTs, and  Rickard Luckin  Tax Director James Boustead, who is an expert in Employee Ownership Schemes.

Plus, Dave Perry, Technical Director of  Peregrine Livefoods  based in Chipping Ongar, explains how his business became an EOT.
