About this set of letters

Under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, an employer has a duty to inform employees who are affected by changes to ownership, and consult them where appropriate.

These letters start that process by telling an employee either that the ownership of the organisation will change or that their employment will continue at a new location.

The letters include explanatory guidance notes in plain English.

Application and features

These template letters are useful in a situation:

  • where all or part of a sole trader's business or partnership is sold or otherwise transferred

  • where a company, or part of it, is bought or acquired by another, provided this is done by the second company buying or acquiring the assets and then running the business and not acquiring the shares only

  • where two companies cease to exist and combine to form a third

Use the letters where a part of a company is bought or acquired by another and administration duties are contracted out to an overseas company or any other single part of the business.


  • Purpose of the letter and reference to relevant law
  • Date of transfer
  • Verification to employee that employment terms and conditions will remain unchanged
  • Confirmation of salary payments
