Employee Stock Ownership Plans
Chicago Business Valuation of ESOP Shares
As a business owner, there are a number of different ways that you can
reward, compensate, and motivate employees. One manner of doing so that
has become increasingly popular over the years are employee stock ownership
plans, also known as ESOP. This is an excellent way to raise capital on
a tax-deductible basis and create tools for estate planning and succession.
There is typically a requirement to have a valuation of your company in
order to create and maintain employee stock plans for your business, which
should be trusted to someone with a knowledge of business valuation. At
Gibraltar Business Valuations, we have more than 20 years of experience gained from completing professional,
consistent valuations for ESOP shares.
What Is ESOP?
The type of valuation for ESOP is generally very complex, even more so
than a standard business valuation. The Department of Labor and the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) may question your valuation, but if you choose to
work with us, you can rest assured that your report will withstand even
the heaviest of scrutiny. Gibraltar Business Valuations can provide quality
and cost-effective valuation services. You can count on us to carefully
draft the initial valuations, provide valuations establishing an ESOP,
and deliver the annual ESOP valuations for your business.
Our team can provide you with the following employee stock ownership plan
- Transaction structure advice
- ESOP securities
- Responses to ESOP participant challenges
- Required update valuations
