The easy to follow, comprehensive procedures and checklists in this guide eliminate common issues which cause delay or dispute in relation to contracts for sale of business, such as purchaser entity, finance, premises and franchise requirements.
Precedents include our new Uniform Contract for Sale of Business which covers all aspects of the transaction from pre-exchange vendor warranties and purchaser guarantees (by shareholders where applicable) to completion, including effective releases of PPSR security interests, transfer all of business assets including copyright works, trade marks, supplier contracts, et cetera and the ASIC/Fair Trading requirements for the transfer of business name. Our contract also customises the competition restraints so they are enforceable, bind the key people and deal with e-commerce, non-solicitation of staff and customers and confidential information.
The commentary compares business structures, sets out the tax consequences of sale price apportionment, explains the tax treatment of stock, long service leave and other employee entitlements, considers the status of the premises and any franchise agreement and discusses many other important issues affecting business conveyancing.
