Representations and guarantees are information provided by one party to the other party with respect to matters related to the transaction. This usually involves providing a promise or guarantee of satisfaction to the other party with respect to the issue. An example of representation and warranty would be for the seller to assure the buyer that all appliances related to the business have been kept in good working order, in accordance with the usual industry practice.
Employees are usually another point of contention when negotiating an asset purchase. When a company`s assets are sold to a new buyer, all employees become, in accordance with the law, the buyer`s successors. This means that all staff liability, such as work history, leave pay, severance pay and severance pay, will be transferred to the purchaser. If the buyer wishes to terminate an employee purchasing after 6 months, the buyer must pay the employee`s termination salary for the entire duration of the employee in the previous company. In the absence of provisions to protect the buyer, the buyer may have to pay a large bill as a redundancy payment to a worker. As a result, a buyer generally requires the seller to terminate the employment of all employees with the company effective on the reference date. The buyer requires the seller to pay the employees all legal rights to the termination, such as termination fees, severance pay and accumulated leave pay. The purchaser will then offer employees employment under the same conditions as the previous job. Employees begin working with the buyer`s deadline and the buyer will not be responsible for staff until that day for leave, termination and redundancy pay. Since the seller is debited from a high payment to his employees, the seller can increase the purchase price to reflect these debts. Since the interest of the seller and buyer is fundamentally at odds, the issue of employees generally becomes a controversial issue when the sale of assets is being negotiated.
