Dylan Huws, handling executive of Caernarfon-based Cwmni Da, is branch a £5m income business organisation into an worker tenure trust.
The pierce is believed to be a initial in a UK promote attention and is being project-managed by a Wales Co-operative Centre.
With authorised recommendation from Geldards, they have drawn adult a five-year business devise that will see Mr Huws offered his shares to a trust.
The trust will account a merger of shares yet a new borrowing facility, that will be financed from Cwmni Da’s possess cashflows.
The volume that Mr Huws will accept for his shares over a subsequent 3 years will be formed on an eccentric gratefulness of a business.
Mr Huws will sojourn as handling executive until a tenure transition is completed.
The 50 employees in a business could, depending on a trade opening of a company, any accept a taxation giveaway division of scarcely £4,000 a year underneath a new tenure structure.
The award-winning association is formed during a state-of-the-art prolongation centre in a Goleuad building on Victoria Dock.
Cwmni Da was founded in 1996 and has a prolonged and successful lane record creation factual, entertainment, play and children’s programmes, especially in a Welsh denunciation for S4C.
Their outlay includes some of a channel’s biggest hits like Fferm Ffactor, Noson Lawen, Deian a Loli, Dim Byd, and Ffit Cymru.
Since final Dec Mr Huws has been a solitary owners of a association after his associate directors Neville Hughes and Ifor ap Glyn motionless to step down, both still work closely with a company
A owner member of Cwmni Da, Mr Huws, 59, said:
“I was also wakeful that it was now time to ready a approach for a subsequent era and a subsequent sparkling theatre in a company’s story.I also wanted to safeguard Cwmni Da remained in a hands of staff who have all contributed to a success.

In addition, 3 curators including a staff deputy will be allocated to demeanour after a employees’ interests.
Mr Huws added:
In new years, converging in a eccentric prolongation zone has seen several Welsh companies being sole to incomparable entities, this means some-more mostly than not that tenure is no longer in Welsh hands.
It would be easy to sell Cwmni Da and afterwards step divided though we wouldn’t like to consider that people that we trust in and honour unexpected mislaid their jobs since new owners had come in and wanted to do something different.”
I went down a trail of perplexing to demeanour during opposite association models and structures and one that everybody is informed with is John Lewis and Partners.
Creating an worker tenure trust feels like it is a ideal fit since we trust sexually that a staff are a pivotal partial of a business and that they can all advantage from their efforts.
Shares will be hold on interest of a workforce in a trust account and a trade association will need to infer to a curators that a decisions that they’re creation are profitable to a workforce.
The workers can acquire scarcely £4,000 a year taxation giveaway if a curators confirm that a association is in a position to share profits. There are incentives for everybody to make this work.
