Are you thinking about selling your business?


We are delighted that Optimat Director, Deborah Creamer, will be presenting at the Selling Your Business workshop on 7th November, to tell other businesses about why Optimat decided to become an employee owned business.

Planning for succession is one of the biggest challenges a business owner will face but giving the topic early consideration can mean better results for the employer, the employees and the business.

Employee buyouts are becoming an increasingly popular succession option in Scotland. Being employee-owned gives staff a meaningful stake in the business, boosting productivity and performance, whilst ensuring the company is anchored in the local area, retaining jobs and skills. For business owners, employee ownership offers a tax efficient exit route that protects a company’s legacy while providing a competitive price for the business.

To help you decide whether an employee buyout could work for you, Scottish Enterprise and Dumfries & Galloway Chambers of Commerce will be hosting a Selling your Business workshop exploring succession options including employee ownership on 7th November in Dumfries.
