On this episode of Family Business Today, Greg Lewis interviews Tim Jamison with Prairie Capital Advisors to discuss his experiences involved in developing Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP) and the advantages of an ESOP for business owners.
Tim describes an ESOP as a form of business transition that gradually transfers to the employees of the business over time. Many business owners view this as a great way to reward the employees who have helped them build their business over the years and a way to help those employees with their retirement.
In today’s episode, I will ask Tim to share:
* What does an ideal company look like for an ESOP?
* Do you have to give up ownership of your business to create an ESOP?
* How you can receive tremendous tax benefits from Uncle Sam by implementing an ESOP
* Who is and what role does a Trustee play in an ESOP.
* Why valuing your business at Fair Market Value is important?
* What are the cost to implement an ESOP?
* Ways to customize an ESOP Plan for your business. If you have a question about ESOP or succession planning, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
