Business Transfer Agreement

If you have decided it is time to sell your business you will want to use our Business Transfer Agreement to do so. This template is suitable to be used by an individual, company or partnership. A Business Transfer Agreement is quite similar to an Asset Sale Agreement wherein it can be used to sell a business and the assets of the business. Although the Business Transfer Agreement is similar to the asset sale it wouldn’t be used for a large business purchase. This one is best used for smaller businesses that have a lower value. It could also work if the buyer of the business is familiar with the business and its workings and a detailed warranty isn’t needed.

When you purchase the Business Transfer Agreement you will be able to customise it to meet your needs. There are additional clauses and schedules that come included in the agreement. Some of the additional parts of the template are as follows:

  • Definitions and Interpretation
  • Transfer of the Business
  • Debts and Liabilities
  • Title
  • Consideration
  • Completion
  • Appointment of the Company as Attorney
  • Costs
  • Service Agreements
  • Lease of Property
  • Employees

Besides working for you, if you have a business to transfer you can also use this template if you are the one doing the purchasing. The Business Transfer Agreement can be used in either situation.
