4. Buying & Selling Business

The purchase or sale of a business is a complicated transaction. As a buyer or seller preparation for the transaction is critical from a due diligence, definition of rights, obligation and treatment of tax including GST. If the Vendor is a Company, the Purchaser may want to buy all of the shares in the Company and acquire the business in this way rather than purchase the business and it's assets. The value of the tangible assets, plus an estimated value of the intangible assets such as goodwill, usually determines the value of a business. Particular aspects to consider are intellectual property, guarantees, restrictive covenants, deferred consideration and warranties. There must also be consideration of the transfer of liabilities for staff entitlements such as superannuation and leave. If the business is a franchise or license arrangement, there will be other issues to consider including the terms of the contractual arrangements.
