Certificate of Seller

How To Use

A Certificate of Sale is a document often requested by a Buyer at a closing of a business.

It is a straightforward document that references back to the primary purchase agreement. Be sure that you have the facts correct when signing it. Have your attorney look this over as part of your overall purchase agreement.

This review list is provided to inform you about the document in question and assist you in its preparation.

  • Make multiple copies to accompany the paperwork for the overall sale. The copies should be kept with those records that should wind up in the Corporate minute book and other relevant places after you have completed the sale or purchase, depending on which side of the transaction you are on.
