Buying a Business in Arizona
Buying a business can be an advantageous investment for both individuals and companies. However, the transaction is much more complicated than a usual purchase.
Buying a business sometimes involves laws concerning mergers, acquisitions, negotiations or securities exchanges. These fields are governed by Arizona and Federal law.
What Parts of the Business Am I Buying?
If a party wants to direct business operations, the best way is to acquire a right called "control". With control of a business, the party acquires all assets and the customer base of the business, plus it also assumed the company's debts. A complete picture of the financial position of the business is important for the buyer to make his decision. This picture is gained through a process called "due diligence". The process of due diligence uses Federal and Arizona guidelines to protect both parties. If these guidelines are not followed, a party may be found in breach of a legal duty. Following the process of due diligence dutifully is the best way to inform oneself for whether to buy a business. Also if the business is eventually bought, transfers of ownership happen much more easily once the process is followed.
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 may add to the price as well. The process for how the right of control can be transferred or modified is defined by specific laws in Arizona. Procedures may make buying a business more or less expensive than simply the market value of its assets.
