Avoiding Pitfalls with Business Sales (On Demand)

This On Demand was recorded on 8 November 2022.

Whether it is the sale of a business, a transfer of a business as part of a relationship property settlement, or the execution of an estate, there are numerous pitfalls to be aware of when advising on transactions which lead to the sale of all, or part of, an interest in a business and which impact on the value of a business.

In this On Demand, the presenters will highlight matters to be aware of when advising on business restructures, sales, or the sale of an interest in a business. Although it does not cover valuation theory or how to undertake a valuation, the supporting materials will provide a brief summary of the theory behind valuations for background knowledge.

Fundamental points to consider include reliance on:

  • Key customers and/or suppliers;
  • Intellectual property;
  • Lease arrangements; and
  • Financiers (including amounts owed to owners via current accounts).

Then there is the issue of taxation pitfalls, including:

  • Continuity of taxation losses and imputation credits; and
  • Potential liability for past taxation issues.

And then there is the issue of how a new owner can get their investment back.

Who should view?

Legal professionals involved in business restructures, sales, or the sale of an interest in a business.
