Employee Stock Purchase Plan

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

Definition

Allows employees to buy company stock through payroll deductions, usually at a discounted price. Employees can sell stocks purchased through these plans at any time. Because they are buying at a discounted price, immediate profits are often possible. (Stock purchase plans are usually set up as tax-qualified "Section 423" plans.)
