Non-disclosure agreements: Keeping your business safe in a sale

Selling your business can involve disclosing to potential buyers, confidential information that is commercially sensitive.

To ensure this information is still protected during the sale, you can use a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to prevent another party from revealing this information, with the threat of legal action as a consequence.

An NDA can give you the peace of mind that your business, and the private information within it, is protected from your competitors and the public.

The NDA can protect many different items of information such as business plans, financial information and employee details, as well as other confidential details.

There are many benefits when it comes to ensuring your business is protected while you are negotiating a sale.

With an NDA in place, if anyone did use the information they saw for their own benefit or the benefit of another business, you could take legal action against them.

Ultimately NDAs are a way of ensuring that any potential buyer is aware of the risks they would be taking if they were to use your information for their own benefit.
