Business Sales

The sale of an on-going business is a complex matter, and how the sale is structured can have significant tax implications to both the buyer and the seller. In many instances, the parties want to conduct the transaction in a way that allows the buyer to continue to operate the business uninterrupted. And, many transactions are leveraged (this is when a company is acquired by the buyer using the value of the company's assets to finance its acquisition, thereby allowing the buyer to minimize its outlay of cash in making the purchase), often requiring the seller to postpone receipt of some of the purchase price. Coordinating these issues while protecting your interests, whether as a buyer or a seller, requires an experienced business sale attorney.
