About this document

This is a comprehensive agreement for you to buy any business providing professional services from an individual, a company, or any other organisation.

However, if you are buying the actual company, this agreement is not suitable. See our Company sale agreements section.

It is usual for the buyer to produce the sale document but there is no reason why the seller should not obtain an advantage by making the document his or hers.

  • Purchase price apportioned among the assets to simplify tax planning

Super. It saves going to a solicitor who will takes ages, cause difficulty over little things, cost a fortune and probably still misst things.
