In the event of the purchase and sale of transactions (shares), all shareholders agree to sell to the purchaser all shares issued by the company. A share purchase agreement is the sale of a few (not all) shares issued by a company from a current shareholder to a buyer. In a share purchase agreement, the buyer could be another shareholder or a third party. An asset sale agreement is an agreement between the existing owner of an asset (usually called a “seller” or “seller”) and a third party who wishes to buy or purchase the asset (usually referred to as a “buyer” or “buyer”). The asset can be tangible (for example. B equipment or warehouse) or intangible (e.g. B intellectual property (IP) or goody of a company). Commercial contracts, such as sales contracts related to the company`s core business, would generally be transferred to the buyer after the conclusion. Commercial contracts, such as partnerships in related companies, may or may not be included in the sale of businesses. These partnership or company contracts may prohibit the transfer of shares from a partner to an outside party. However, be careful not to be disoriented when you buy a business in its entirety (with all its assets). This is a much more complex process and you will need a business sales contract.

If you are selling or buying commercial assets, you must have the right contract to make sure everything is going smoothly. This is called an asset sale agreement. An asset sale contract is a contract that defines the terms of an owner (the seller) to sell his asset to another party (the buyer).
In the event of a sale of assets, the entity (company, partnership, etc.) is retained by the sellers and only the assets of the company (equipment, buildings, client lists, etc.) are transferred to the buyer. A key agreement would be an agreement that would have a concrete impact on the business, either because of costs or because of a relatively direct impact on revenue.
