Buying or Selling a Business in Tampa
As Tampa buying/selling business attorneys our primary goal will be to make sure your interests are protected in this particular sale. But because we are a full-service law firm, we can provide you with much more than that. Our firm specifically handles business law, estate planning law, and family law. Often times the purchase or sale of a business is deeply related to at least one of these areas of law. If you are buying a business that will be the first business you have ever run, you will soon realize that any business owner has many legal needs. Whether it is in drafting employee or vendor contracts, creating a business entity to actually own the business, or handling disputes with customers, a Tampa buying/selling business attorney will be an important part of your business going forward. If, however, you are selling your business you may have estate planning law needs. Obviously when you sell a business it changes the nature of your asset profile and will change the details of what you would like to see done with your assets at the end of your life. We can help you update or create estate planning documents to be sure your wishes are followed.
An Attorney Can Help You Understand Tax Rights and Responsibilities
When you buy or sell a Tampa business you have certain rights and responsibilities when it comes to taxes related to that business. While you should certainly discuss your overall tax rights and responsibilities with a tax professional, there are some tax issues that are inherent to the sale of a business that we can help you with. For example, it is normal for a purchaser of a business to request documentation of any tax, penalty, or interest that the business owes to the Department of Revenue. The purchaser of a business could be held liable for these taxes and fees if the sale goes through without these expenses being taken care of first.
