Employee Stock Ownership Plans

An employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) is a tax-qualified, defined contribution plan. An ESOP can help a business motivate employees to perform better, give employees a vested interest in increasing the company’s value, take advantage of favorable tax treatment, and create a market for closely held company shares.
