This two-hour on-demand course addresses the sale and purchase of a business by way of the sale and purchase of the assets of that business. It is possible to acquire a business by acquiring the entity that owns the business assets (for example, by acquiring all the shares in a company that owns the business assets). However, acquiring the entity means both all the assets and all the liabilities are acquired. This may result in complications for both parties.

This course will cover the purchase of a business through the purchase of business assets and is divided into 6 modules:

  • Getting started
  • Initial considerations and business finance
  • The agreement
  • Due diligence and vendor’s warranties
  • For more information on conducting due diligence on a business transaction, you may be interested in our Step-by-step guide to due diligence, which is available here.
  • Exchange of contracts and pre-settlement
  • Settlement and post-settlement

At the end of this on-demand course, you may claim 2 CPD points. Please consult the CPD rules for your State/Territory to ascertain how many CPD points you can claim for private study of audio/visual material during the CPD year.

Due to new reporting requirements introduced by the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia on 1 April 2021, practitioners holding WA practising certificates are not currently eligible to claim CPD points for this product.
