Rather than acquire all of the shares of a company (and therefore both its assets and liabilities) very often a buyer will prefer to only take over certain assets of a business.  In these situations, as well as if you’re buying a business from an unincorporated organisation or acquiring a business from an administrator, the main agreement used to negotiate and document the deal is an asset purchase agreement (sometimes also referred to as a business transfer agreement or sale and purchase agreement).  The following download is a simple version of an asset purchase agreement:
