What happens when a partner retires, sells their share, divorces, is convicted of a crime, dies or is disabled? You can address all of these situations in a buy-sell agreement. It`s much cheaper and much less time-consuming to have it in advance instead of looking into this situation when it happens. If your LLC has multiple partners and does not have a buy-sell agreement, you may find yourself in certain situations that are very troublesome and seriously affect your business value. What are typical redemption triggers? Typical events that trigger the obligation to sell or buy a stake are called buyback triggers. Sale/sale contracts and portability restrictions are useful for determining how a member`s interests are valued for transfer tax purposes, and the owners are bound by the terms of the agreement. Possible methods for determining the value of a stake in the property (i.e. the purchase/sale price) under a buy/sell agreement (1) include a fixed price per unit; (2) require an independent assessment; or (3) the use of a formula. A buy-sell agreement may describe the purchase price of an interest as equal to the “fair value” of the interest. .
