Purchasing and Selling a Business
Help your small-business clients with the most important decisions of their lives: How to buy a new business or how to sell their present business. Course highlights include coping with IRC Section 197, why to get the seller to finance the purchase, and how to value and set a price for a closely-held business. See how to handle the requirements of Section 1060 in allocating the purchase price to the various assets and classes of assets. Learn about creative financing techniques such as leveraged stock acquisitions. Find out why sellers want to sell corporate stock, why buyers want to buy corporate assets, and how the Tax Code can satisfy both sides. This course is most appropriate for the professional with detailed knowledge in purchasing/selling a business who may be at a mid-level position within an organization with operational or supervisory responsibilities, or both.
