Legal Help with Asset Purchase Agreements
So what exactly is an asset purchase agreement? Essentially an asset purchase agreement (or APA) is a binding document between a buyer and seller for the purchase and sale of a company’s assets. Usually it will include language about the reason for selling and guidelines for a sale.
What are business assets?
Company, or business assets are any items that a business needs in order to operate. From office furniture, to computers, machinery, or other items, these are all considered business assets. Other valuable items such as a customer list may also be considered an asset. If a business owner decides to sell the company, he or she may form an asset purchase agreement with a buyer in order to sell these items. Generally, the buyer will choose what assets they want to purchase, if not all, from the business in order to minimize liability.
