Buying or selling a business requires careful planning and consideration.
Buying or selling a business requires careful planning and consideration. A properly worded contract and advice before signing a contract will help to protect your rights and avoid any legal pitfalls, including in some circumstances minimising paying government charges, stamp duty and GST.
We are able to assist you in:
- Pre-contract negotiations including general advice regarding GST and Capital Gains Tax issues;
- Drafting purchase/sale contracts;
- Due diligence enquiries through to completion of the sale/purchase;
- Franchising Agreements;
- All general business acquisitions or sales including share sales and acquisitions.
It is important to ensure you seek legal advice before you sign a contract. Once a contract is signed it is much harder to negotiate any changes to protect your interests.
