Definitions of BUY AND SELL AGREEMENT
Sort: Oldest first
Both partnerships and director/shareholder controlled companies need agreements to help ensure a satisfactory disposal of shares in certain circumstances. The 'buy and sell' route is one such, where it is written into a wider agreement that in the event of death or retirement, one party will sell the business share, and another buy. A fixed agreement rather than an option.
