About this document

This is a comprehensive agreement for the purchase/sale of a business by an individual, a company or any other organisation.

Note: not suitable for sale of shares in a company. For a company sale, see Company sale agreements section.

It is usual for the buyer to produce the sale document but there is no reason why the seller should not obtain an advantage by providing the first draft.

Warranties have been used only so far as appropriate to the subject matter of the sale. The drafting notes contain a thorough explanation of how warranties work.

Complications arise if the purchase money is not paid over to the seller at the same moment as other matters are finalised. This and other Net Lawman documents assume that most matters will be completed when the cash is paid. There are a few inevitable exceptions, particularly when relying on a third party such as a web host or domain name registrar. If it is inevitable that some matters remain to be done later than the date of completion, you should use our drafting service to draw the fine points for you.

The purchase price may be apportioned among the assets to assist in tax planning.

What Our Clients Say
  • "I will certainly be advertising your company to other business colleagues.

    The lease was like picking up an old favourite novel and understanding everything from the first turn of the page. So easy to read and complete, what a joy and your site was recommended to me by another colleague.

    Hope this brings a smile to your face knowing you are making business life easy for people and furthermore the price was just as pleasing.

  • "I appreciate your patience. I have to say though it took me a while (I had almost given up) to come across your internet site, but I was quite impressed with the manoverabilty of the site itself and the services it offers. Normally I am very cautious about internet services and am pleasantly impressed by you professional response. Without doubt I will defintely be recommending yourselves to others."

  • "I have found the product exactly what I wanted and the notes helpful - as well as it being easy to locate, buy and download. There should be a better way of making your product more widely known. I have recently had experience of a tailor-made lease and this left a lot to be desired - whereas your product is well researched and ticks all the boxes. "
