Virtual Classroom (Live) Financial, Legal, and Tax Aspects of Buying or Selling a Business Webinar

This program is specifically designed to present all aspects of the sale or the purchase of a business; whether structured as an asset, stock, or redemption transaction, The discussion will focus on specific effects of financial, tax, and legal ramifications of each type of deal structure.

Course Description/Agenda


A discussion of the various types of deal structures will take place. With each discussion, details of what a Seller and what a Buyer should be concerned about will be presented. In addition, the tax and legal aspects of each structure will be explained. Once the various deal structures are presented, then the discussion will focus on specific effects of financial, tax, and legal ramifications of each type of deal structure.

Actual cases will be presented such that the participant will be able to fully understand the concepts presented. Finally, issues facing the Seller and issues facing the Buyer will be presented. In this final session, specific concerns of both the Seller and Buyer will be presented with several specific options available to each, under differing sets of situations.

Why should you Attend: No matter what your position is in a company, it is essential that, if you are involved in any aspect of a merger transaction, you need to be fully aware of the impact your role has on the end result. For example, the manner in which a business transaction is recorded, either as an investment or as an expense, will impact both the value of the business that is the target and the return on investment of the transaction. Thus, if you are involved in a sale, you want the Seller to obtain the highest amount possible in the sale of the business.

On the other hand, if you are involved with the Buyer, you do not want to purchase unnecessary assets or pay more than the company is worth and not be able to have the Buyer obtain a proper return on the investment.

In a similar fashion, it is critical that all parties be aware of the allocation of the assets involved in the transaction, since the US tax code requires the parties to agree on what is being sold and what is being purchased. The taxes paid by the Seller are determined on the allocation agreed between the parties.

As can be seen from this brief description, all parties must be aware of the ramifications of their business decisions on the overall structure of the transaction. Finally, it must be realized by all participants that the final structure of the deal will impact both the tax and legal aspects for the parties going forward.

This program is specifically designed to present all aspects of the sale or the purchase of a business; whether structured as an asset, stock, or redemption transaction.
