About this document

Note: All Net Lawman company documents provide compliance with the Companies Act 2013.

This document has been drawn for a simple sale and purchase of a limited company. It has been drawn primarily to protect the buyer, but a seller could take advantage by submitting an edited version to his buyer.

There are no extras here: no real property, no conditional payment nor withholding of part payment. The company has no subsidiaries.

You can use this document to buy a private company of any value in any business.

If your deal is more complicated you can use the table below to choose a different template. This template is suitable for all types of business. You can use it to buy anything from a car dealership to a civil engineering company.

In addition we also provide an example disclosure letter in this pack. We have provided a format as an indication of how a disclosure letter works and a style you could use. The detailed wording is up to you but can be added easily.

A word about warranties:

We have also included warranties. Warranties protect the interest of the buyer, who does not have the information available to the seller. It is fair and reasonable for a buyer to demand warranties and for a seller to give them. However, it is quite easy for a buyer to use warranties to "improve" his original deal. So, if you are a seller, do not give a warranty if you do not know whether it is true, but do be prepared to "go and find out" information that could be within your knowledge.

The 71 individual warranties are in sections relating to:

  • General
  • No damaging effect of this agreement
  • Company structure and operation
  • Accounts
  • Taxation
  • Assets
  • Trading and contracts
  • Employment
  • Insurance
  • Intellectual Property
  • Information technology ("IT")

Key features are:

  • This agreement is suitable for any type of trade or business;
  • Drawn for the deal to be completed on the same day, not at some future time;
  • Suitable for a single company of any size;
  • Limited warranties (unlike the others in this set);

Formed a great basis for the transaction. The guidance notes could have given rather more detail not only what could be put in, but more importantly explaining various clauses and what need not be included according to different circumstances.
