What else you might like to know about Business Sale

If you are a business owner looking to sell your company, seeking the help of an experienced legal service provider should be your next step. Here is some basic advice and guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

Why do I need help to sell my business?

Once you have decided that it is time to sell your business, there are a number of legal and tax implications to take into account. It is important to consult a legal service provider in order to ensure that you adhere to your responsibilities as an employer and follow the relevant legal processes.

Who must I inform when selling my business?

When selling your business, you have a responsibility to keep your staff and shareholders informed of the coming changes. You should also appoint a new director, and inform Companies House of the changes.

How long should the process take?

Selling a business does not have a definite timeframe. The speed and complexity of a sale may depend on the structure of a business, the size of a company, the number of employees and the assets associated with the business – including properties.

How can a legal service provider help?

A legal service provider is well placed to offer step-by-step guidance when selling your business, instructing you on the necessary paperwork and  legalities required before you can hand your business over to a buyer.

How should I choose a legal service provider?

When appointing a legal expert to aid in the sale of a business, you should look to find a legal service provider with relevant experience. It may also be important to choose a legal service provider based on their size, location, cost or reputation. You can use The Law Superstore’s review and rating system to help you see what previous clients thought of a service provider.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.
