Top 5 Features Of Sales & Purchase Agreement Treaty

Your agreement should cover every aspect of your sales and purchases; no detail is too small or too large, but avoid being redundant. Your list should include the following items:

1. Overview of the transaction


Who is involved in this agreement? How much are you willing to pay for it, whether you’re buying it or selling it? What are the terms and conditions of this deal? When drafting the treaty, make sure to include important details like the type of operation, whether it’s an asset or a business, and whether the assets are stocks or shares. Be precise and use direct, straightforward language.

2. Go over terms and conditions


After you and your transaction partner have agreed on a number, go over the following points to clarify:


  1. Modes of payment
  2. Currency
  3. Is it possible to predict whether or not deferred payments will be made?
  4. The requirement for a deposit
  5. Whatever is deemed appropriate?


To avoid any misunderstandings in the agreement it is best to settle the requirements early on in the transaction. In order to avoid confusion and loopholes, it is also critical that you go over all of the terms before presenting them to the transaction partners.

3. Checklist of Items


We mean everything under the sun when we say that. If there are assets involved, create an exact inventory. The following are some of the components that should be included in your agreement:


  1. Physical property
  2. Business documents
  3. Cash
  4. The company’s name 
  5. The company’s name 
  6. Goodwill
  7. Licenses
  8. Patent Rights & Formulas
  9. Royalties
  10. Trademarks
  11. Useful information


Additionally, don’t forget to include liabilities in your list. This is true for the transaction partner’s loans, debts, and accounts payable. Include a suitable non-compete clause in your transaction agreement to prevent your transaction partner from forming a similar company and becoming your future competitor.

4. Confidentiality


A non-disclosure agreement is another important element to include in your contract. If something goes wrong after you make a purchase, you can hold your transaction partner accountable. A non-disclosure agreement is similar to insurance in that it protects you and your newly acquired company from liabilities and debts. A non-disclosure agreement protects you from being duped by irresponsible sellers who may flee after selling their business to you.

5. Concluding the Document


Check the names and titles of all parties involved, as well as their witnesses (for witness signature purposes), dates, and all other components of your agreement, just before you seal the deal. While you’re at it, look for typos and unclear sentences. Finally, make a number of copies of the agreement and have them signed. This will satisfy all parties involved, as they will be able to return home with their own original agreement. Finally, a notary should attest to the documents.
