Congratulations! You have just completed the sale of your business and you are ready to retire!  But wait, there may still be a few items to clean up before you can wipe it from your mind and focus on Mai Tais on a beach!

These items may include such things as:

  • Attending to filing of any required tax filings and remittance of any taxes owing on the sale of the business assets.
  • Monitoring holdback and accounting deadlines in accordance with the Purchase Agreement and otherwise.
  • Working with the purchaser to notify suppliers, customers, employees, etc. of the change of ownership as necessary.
  • If the Vendor was a Corporation and changed its address as a result of the closing, updating the Corporation’s financial institutions and creditors of the Corporation’s current registered address.
  • Attending to other matters as your accountant and/or legal counsel may advise.

This is not an exhaustive list, and each situation is different. Your more specific obligations should be fully discussed with an experienced corporate/business lawyer.
