Business transfers – Get help with the process

Business transfers can be a long and complex process involving internal and external stakeholders. The scope depends on the size, complexity, and operating conditions of the business/company.

At Raadgiver.dk we can assist you with, among other things:

  • Business legal assistance regarding the transfer documents, review (due diligence) and possibly updating the company’s legal affairs.
  • Transfer of a business (ApS / A/Ss).
  • Transfer of a business with one or more employees, including e.g. key employees.
  • Compliance with applicable law in connection with business transfers (including the “Act on the legal position of employees in connection with business transfers” etc.)

Business transfers without surprises

When considering buying or selling a business or company, there are legal considerations you should keep in mind. To avoid unpleasant surprises in business transfers as a buyer or seller, it’s important to have a business legal advisor and an accountant involved in the process. This way, you can ensure that you don’t encounter any unpleasant surprises during the business transfer, both as a buyer and seller.

Possible situations and forms of transfer (Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A))

  • Wish to sell your company.
  • Wanting to buy another company.
  • Different types of “mergers”.

Transfers can be either a share transfer (where ownership is transferred) or an asset transfer (where the company’s assets are transferred) between buyer and seller.
