At BBS Law we have a wealth of experience in advising both sellers and buyers on business sales.
Buying or selling a business is an alternative to buying or selling a company. It involves the buyer purchasing certain assets and rights, and sometimes assuming certain liabilities, of a seller’s business. On the sale of a business (also called an asset sale) the seller is the person(s) or entity that owns the business, be it a company, sole trader, partnership or LLP.
At BBS Law we have a wealth of experience in advising both sellers and buyers on company sales.
Buying or selling a company is an alternative to buying or selling a company’s business. It involves the buyer acquiring all of the shares in a company. In this way, the buyer acquires ownership and control of the company that carries on the business. The business itself, and all its rights and assets, together with all its liabilities and responsibilities, remains with the company.
Family investment companies (sometimes abbreviated to FICs) have recently become very popular. In simple terms, a family investment company is a private limited company which is set up in a way to enable an individual to pass wealth to the next generation, whilst still retaining control of his assets.
Growth businesses and start-ups can offer attractive investment opportunities to entrepreneurial individuals, particularly given the tax incentive schemes on offer. However, as with all investments, these types of transactions come with their own risks and challenges. Having an experienced and knowledgeable team of advisers can be invaluable in protecting your investment.
