The AGC legal team focus on a number of key areas of business sales and purchase services, including::
A buyer of a business needs to understand as much as possible about the business they intend to buy. It is essential to make a prudent assessment of the business performance, returns and financial statements provided by the seller, as well as the existing and future competitors that may impact on the business.
AGC Lawyers can assist and prepare a written business contract for you that includes all contract details that must be documented, identified and signed by all parties involved in the purchase contract.
Business Sale including Contract of Sale (Assets)
When selling a business there are legal issues and processes that will need to be prepared and documented to complete the sale.
AGC Lawyers can assist you during this critical stage. Our legal team can prepare and document the legal requirements needed to list, sell and prepare a written contract for a ‘trouble free sale’ of your business.
A business transfer agreement is an essential, necessary agreement if you are transferring and incorporating your businesse(s) from your personal ownership and liability to that of a company.
AGC Lawyers have the knowledge and skills to prepare a business transfer agreement that will provide you with clarity and assurance when assets are categorised and transferred. We identify and calculate the necessary reimbursements that need to be paid, including the costs incurred in any legal process.
Lease and Sublease Agreements based on Queensland and N.S.W. Title Practices
A commercial lease is, in basic terms, a legal and binding agreement between a landlord and a business tenant for a commercial rental property used to conduct a business.
Commercial leases are more complicated than general residential leases, because different business operators have different needs for different types of business. This is why we have to ensure that the leases we sign are in line with the expectations of both parties to avoid future legal complications.
Sometimes a business tenant’s requirements change as their business experiences growth, maturity and/or decline due to market forces – in any of these cases a tenant may decide to sublease part of the property. While a commercial lease is a rental agreement that is usually signed for several years, a sublease is a lease agreement between a tenant and a third party who rents part or all of the property for a portion of the existing lease contract held by the tenant.
