Whether you are starting out in business or looking to retire there are many things to be considered, probably more than you realise! Our business lawyers can help you.

Buying or Selling a Business in Scotland

Buying or selling a business in Scotland can be a complex process, even with small businesses, requiring professional advice from business lawyers and/or accountants. Whether you are an individual buying your first business, or looking to expand your existing business, we help make it all clear and simple.

Let our business lawyers help you through the minefield of rules and regulations to reach a quick and satisfactory outcome with the minimum of fuss.

We act regularly for clients across Scotland and England in respect of the purchase or sale of different types of business structures, including sole traders, partnerships, family-run businesses and limited companies (for which company law expertise is essential). Common businesses sold in Scotland include all types of shops, hairdressers, beauty salons, restaurants, pubs, hotels, and professional practices such as solicitors or accountants firms.

Common features of business sales and purchases with which we can assist include the valuation of the business, the due diligence process, the sale of shares or assets (such as commercial property) the lease transfer and the funding of a purchase.

We will also make sure that you are only buying the assets of any business that you require. We will also look after your staff issues, and ensure your business staff are well protected during any transfer. It is very important to us that we protect you from any liabilities, and reduce any ongoing liabilities.

Nothing is more important than protecting you going forward.

We will also provide you with all the advice on tax issues that you require.
