Assisting in Issues Arising from Business or Company Sales

What issues may I face with business/company sales?

If you are looking at selling, there are a number of matters you need to consider.  Example of some are: which employees are being kept, which ones will be made redundant.  Are there any long service leave entitlements that you need to consider, do you have any employees currently on long term leave that you need to think about.

How can you plan to minimise any issues from business or company sales?

The best thing to do is to know what you want from the sale/purchase.  It is always a good idea to speak to a lawyer so you can understand any legal requirements you may have with the sale.
