About this document
This is a comprehensive agreement for the sale and purchase of a business by an individual, a company or any other organisation.
Note: not suitable for sale of shares in a company. For a company sale, see our sale agreements for companies section.
This document is very comprehensive. Before you select it, you might consider the alternative versions, already tailored to the most common business uses. You might also like to read about the legal aspects of selling your business.
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 providing the first draft.
Warranties have been used only so far as appropriate to the subject matter of the sale. The drafting notes contain a thorough explanation of how warranties work.
The purchase price may be apportioned among the assets to assist in tax planning.
As a buyer, you will probably also be buying the property or at least taking over a lease. Many of these agreements include a transfer of a lease and / or an agreement to buy a freehold.
To complete the freehold transfer, you will need to draw a Land Registry transfer form and pay a fee. The solicitors’ monopoly prevents us from helping with this, but a solicitor should charge very little because most of the work has already been done.
We give you more information about these procedures in the drafting notes that come with each document.

"A great site for small business owners. I have required two documents and you have been able to provide both at a modest cost. Both documents have met with my requirements and saved me on legal fees. Keep up the good work."Warren Brogden
