Purchasing or Selling A Business - What's Involved?

The Purchase and Sale of a business is a more demanding and complex task than conveyancing for a property.  This is because although the sums involved are often much lesser, there are risks in purchasing or selling a business that we are tasked with assessing, providing advice on and working with financial advisors to guide you in a review of the business.

There are many important things to consider that can present issues. These include, but are not limited to:

  • The size of the business
  • The industry that the business operates in
  • The location of the business
  • Statutory and other regulatory requirements
  • How the business is operated
  • What asset classes are involved
  • Employment arrangements and industrial relations environment
  • Land utilisation
  • Intellectual property
