About the webinar

Care is required in buying and selling a business to ensure the asset is properly transferred and the parties protected. This session looks at the more tricky aspects that you need to be aware of when acting for either vendor or purchaser of a business:

  • Understanding the sources of liability – contractual and statutory
  • Pre-sale conduct – do I need a heads of agreement
  • Due diligence - getting your house in order
  • Structuring of the transaction – assets or shares?
  • Consents and approvals – consider both regulatory and third parties
  • Purchase price mechanisms – adjustments, deferred payments and earn outs
  • Warranty and indemnity regimes – how this is used to allocate liability
  • Tax implications of the transfer – knowing what to look for
  • Restraint of trade clauses – what you can and can’t do
  • Completing the legal transfer of the specific types of assets
  • Warranty and indemnity insurance

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
