Buying a Business in Arizona
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 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 gains all assets and the customer base of the business, plus it also assumed the company's debts. To make his decision, a purchaser will want a complete picture of the financial position of the business. Through a process called "due diligence", a company's financials become clear. Through due diligence, federal and Arizona guidelines are used to inform both parties, and there may be legal consequences for not following these guidelines properly. Following the procedure 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?
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 Arizona. Procedures may make buying a business more or less expensive than simply the market value of its assets.
