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

Buying a business sometimes involves laws concerning mergers, acquisitions, negotiations or securities exchanges. These fields are governed by Alabama and Federal law.

What Parts of the Business Am I Buying?

A buyer of a business in Enterprise 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. Accordingly, the party buying a business will want a complete picture of the financial position of the business. Through a process called "due diligence", the financials of the company are disclosed. Through due diligence, federal and Alabama guidelines are used to inform both parties, and there may be legal consequences for not following these guidelines properly. Following the process of due diligence faithfully, however, leads to a better informed decision about the purchase of the business. It can also help the ownership transfer to go more smoothly.

How Much Will the Business Cost?

Control of a business is sold for an amount that is necessary for a party to acquire an ownership stake. The value of the business property and the type of business factor in to determine the exact price. The process for how the right of control can be transferred or modified is defined by specific laws in Alabama. Procedures may make buying a business more or less expensive than simply the market value of its assets.
