What Is a Business Purchase and Sales Agreement?

A business purchase and sales agreement, also referred to as just a business purchase agreement or transfer agreement, is a legal contract that transfers the ownership of a company from the seller to a buyer. This legal document contains the terms of the sale, purchase or transfer of the business entity. This type of document can also be used to buy or sell a piece of commercial equipment, asset, building or stock.

The purchase or sale of a business in Arizona has a complicated legal process. It begins with a letter of intent, which will lead to a legally binding purchase agreement being drafted. The standardized provisions of a business purchase agreement include the names of all involved parties, a description of the business, the financial terms of the transaction, a definition of the type of sale, all assets included and excluded, covenants, transfers, third-party brokers, and warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions About Business Purchase and Sales Agreements

  • Can a buyer back out of a business purchase agreement? Yes, until he or she has signed the agreement, a buyer can back out and decide not to go through with the sale. However, buyers must complete several preliminary steps before signing that can safeguard both parties.
  • Should your business purchase agreement include a confidentiality clause? A confidentiality clause in your letter of intent could help you protect your business if a buyer backs out of the sale. With this type of clause, the buyer cannot disclose your confidential information to a third party whether or not the sale goes through.
  • Is the purchase price of a business negotiable? This depends on the circumstances and seller. If you wish to negotiate with the seller to try to obtain a better price, seek assistance from a business law attorney at the Law Offices of William D. Black. We can help you negotiate a purchase and sales agreement before signing.
