For a complete practical guide to the law, taxation and procedure of acquiring shares in private companies and business assets, practitioners need look no further.

The Acquisition of Private Companies and Business Assets has been expanded to cover both share and asset acquisitions. It has been extensively revised to cover key legal developments, including those concerning:-

  • Employees - particularly issues in relation to asset acquisitions such as transfer of contract and TUPE
  • Pensions - in the light of the Pensions Act 1995
  • Acquisitions by a listed company - reflecting changes in the Stock Exchange rules
  • Taxation - including the implication of the most recent Finance Acts.
