Whether you are looking to sell or purchase an existing business via an asset sale or share sale, our team can deal with both. Business sales and purchases can be complex and even lower value transactions can have significant tax implications if not handled correctly. If your sale/purchase also includes the purchase of commercial premises or the transfer of an existing commercial lease or grant of a new lease, our team will also deal with this as part of the transaction.
There are a considerable amount of legal documents involved in the sale/purchase of a business, for instance the Sale Contract, Deed of Assignment of Goodwill, Employee Liability Forms, Business Enquiries and this is assuming there is no lease to assign/surrender and no premises to sell which is rarely the case. Our highly qualified team will guide you through the documentation and ensure you understand everything before you proceed.
Please contact either Crispin Easter or Laura Maltby to arrange an appointment to discuss your matter further but in the meantime, it may help you to consider your replies to the points below to help you to structure your initial contact with us.
