$ 39.00
Add Items to Cart


This is a Form of Consulting Agreement to be used in a situation where the Consultants have just sold their business to the Company as the purchaser. Several issues may be addressed here: the Company wants to retain the availability of the Consultants for their know how, familiarity with clients and customers, etc.; there may also be a tax concern – if the purchaser pays for the ownership interest of the sellers, the sellers may have capital gain, and the purchaser may have an asset that cannot be depreciated – or only depreciated over many years. If the purchaser instead pays compensation, such as a consulting fee, the purchaser can deduct the payments as made, but the Consultants will have to recognize the payments as ordinary income. Often, the negotiations between the parties address and resolve these issues and the allocation of consideration.
