Purchasing a business can be an beneficial investment for both individuals and companies. However, the transaction is much more complicated than a normal purchase.

Purchasing a business occasionally involves laws concerning mergers, acquisitions, negotiations or securities exchanges. These fields are governed by Alaska and Federal law.

What Parts of the Business Am I Buying?

A purchaser of a business in Barrow gains a right called "control", which is the right to direct the business operations as they see fit. Control involves ownership of the business assets and customers, along with the company's debts. In order to protect the interests of all parties, there must be an accurate and complete picture of the financial position of the business. This picture of the company's financials is acquired through a process known as ?due diligence?. Federal and Alaska guidelines are used in the process of due diligence, and not using these guidelines can lead to legal consequences. However, the best informed decision about whether to buy the business can only be obtained through obedience to the due diligence process. Added benefits also include a smoother transition once the business is bought.

How Much Will the Business Cost?

How much the right of control will cost depends on how much ownership stake is required. The value of the property of the business might add to the price as well. The procedure for how the right of control can be transferred or modified is defined by particular laws in Alaska. Procedures may make buying a business more or less expensive than simply the market value of its assets.
