Sale of Shares
In certain circumstances, you may wish to or be advised by your accountant to buy or sell the shares in a company.
If you are the buyer, extra care and consideration (in the form of warranties from the seller) is required. If you are the seller, you also need to carefully consider and protect your position.
Terms of Trade
Having clear rules by which you trade with a buyer or seller of goods or a provider of services will prevent disputes and minimise bad debt.
