Should you consider an ESOP? Join BDO for a complimentary, CPE-qualified seminar to learn the power of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), why it is popular, and what the business benefits are to your organization.

This session will be an overview of the ESOP structure (particularly the S-Corp ESOP structure). This discussion will highlight a case study that provides a clear liquidity option for business owners who want to sell, but not give up control of the business.

Learn about the ESOP advantages:
  • Increase employee involvement, productivity, and retention
  • Increase company profitability
  • Retain control of your company
  • Eliminate corporate income taxes
  • Receive tax-deferred treatment on proceeds from sale of a business
  • Repay debt with tax deductible or pre-tax dollars
We look forward to seeing you there!
