Who can use this Distribution Business Transfer Agreement?
This distribution business transfer is for use when one distributor transfers the business to another.
There are three parties to the agreement: the manufacturer/supplier, the existing distributor and the new distributor.
What is this Agreement for?
It is a formal record of the distribution business transfer to a new distributor. The aim is to ensure continuity of the business without interruption. It is very short and does not deal with any of the complexities that might occur in some situations.
What are the main issues?
As the transfer of a distribution business needs the consent of the principal – i.e. the manufacturer or supplier of products – the consent of the principal is needed. This is given by the supplier being a party to the agreement. In some cases, the supplier is likely to have selected the new distributor.
The new distributor needs to do due diligence on the business before entering into the assignment agreement. Under our template, the new distributor takes on all existing liabilities as well as the benefits becoming the supplier’s reseller.
What detailed terms does the reseller assignment contain?
The agreement contains:
- binding terms and conditions
- outstanding orders
- governing law
