Whether you are buying or selling a New Zealand business, you need to handle it carefully; both are big decisions. 

When buying a business, you should:

  • gather information about the business on offer, a process known as due diligence;
  • find out who owns key assets and whether the business has ongoing liabilities; and
  • make sure the business is correctly valued. 

When selling a business, you should:

  • undertake due diligence;
  • ensure an expert lawyer drafts the contract; and
  • where appropriate, inform parties such as suppliers, landlords and or franchisors. Sometimes, you may need permission from these parties to facilitate the sale.

Purchasing or selling a business can be complicated.

LegalVision’s expert team can help you reduce the stress and the associated risks. Our commercial lawyers have experience in a wide range of business purchases and sales across multiple industries in New Zealand.
