How to achieve an employee buyout

Help and advice for employee buyouts

There are several organisations that provide help and support for employee buyouts:

Seek professional advice

In addition, both the business owner and employees will need professional advisers such as solicitors and accountants to help negotiate the buyout. If an employee trust is being set up, the trustees also need advice. If you can, it makes sense to get advice from specialists with prior experience of employee buyouts.

Owner, employees and trustees all need independent advice as their interests are not necessarily the same.
