Customer Question
Good afternoon,My mom is selling...
Good afternoon,My mom is selling her 100% owned S-Corp to my Cousin for $100,000, repayable upon future profit of the Business. The $100,000 represents contributions in cash my mom put into the business to cover losses. I've attached the 2 drafted agreements. Are there any particular issues that jump out? Does the Promissory Note need to be signed by the Business? My mom (seller) is current 100% owner and my cousin (buyer) will be 100% owner. Documents do not need to be perfect and there's no intent to go after my cousin for the Note. It's only to guarantee if the business makes a profit my mom recoups her investment.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
