Chicago Employee Stock Ownership Plans

Business Valuations 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 is 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 40 years of experience gained from completing professional, consistent valuations for ESOP shares.
