Business Purchases and Sales

There are many pitfalls associated with setting up, changing or selling your business.

Will you be liable for government duty? Do you have all of the required licences and approvals? Are you complying with all of the reporting and legal requirements? Are you exposed to unnecessary risk? What requirements are there to transfer your lease? Do you have any supply or equipment related agreements which must be assigned or terminated before the sale? What taxes apply? How will you deal with staff? Are you owed money from customers? Will you be able to transfer the business name?
