Buy/Sell Agreement

What Is Buy/Sell Agreement?

A buy and sell agreement is a legally binding agreement used to reallocate a share of a business if an owner dies or leaves the business. Also known as a “buy-sell agreement,” a “buyout agreement,” a “business will” or a “business prenup,” buy and sell agreements are used by sole proprietorships, partnerships and closed corporations to divide the business share or interest of a proprietor, partner or shareholder.
