Business Sales & Purchases

WP Lawyers’ business lawyers have the necessary skills and experience to advise you on the purchase or sale of a business. We can assist you with business types including companies, partnerships, and trusts.

  • lease terms
  • Put and Call options
  • goodwill & valuation of business assets
  • tax considerations
  • liason with financial institutions
  • transfers of liquor licences and poker machine entitlements
  • transfers of equipment licences
  • franchising
  • arranging due diligence searches and inspections
  • organising and attending settlement

Sale/purchase of a business

If there is a lease attached to the sale/purchase of a business you should contact us before anything is signed. In fact businesses are so unique that you should consult with us before a ‘standard contract’ is used as the ‘standard conditions’ may not be appropriate for your business or your circumstances and may need adjusting to suit.
