About ESOPs

ESOP is an acronym that stands for Employee Stock Ownership Plan. The purpose of an ESOP is to enable employees to acquire a beneficial ownership in their Company without having to invest their own money.  As such, they are primarily used for business succession or employee benefit purposes.  ESOPs enjoy several tax advantages over their non-ESOP counterparts.  According to the NCEO, there are currently around 7,000 ESOP plans in the U.S.  According to several studies, ESOP’s often enjoy higher productivity and lower turnover compared to non-ESOP companies.
