What is the difference between a company transfer and a business transfer?

A company is a separate legal entity and a company transfer is a type of business sale which involves the transfer of a company’s shares from the seller to the buyer and results in the buyer owning the company, exactly as it was immediately prior to the sale.

A business transfer involves the sale of the whole or part of the assets of a business by a company or an individual.
