Form Of Transition Services Agreement

September 20th, 2021

The following comments and questions better represent “things to ask yourself”, not “this is what you need to do to have successful ASD” – apart from the fact that all participants should be communicated and that the agreement should of course be very well detailed. An ASD is a fairly accurate business example of real events: mom and dad help spend their son for the first few months he works, but soon enough he will be able to take care of everything himself. It`s not as if, at first glance, ASD is complex; But it`s what`s written in the TSA deal that causes a lot of potential headaches and hiccups. A transition service agreement (TSA) is an agreement between a buyer and a seller in which the seller enters into its services and know-how with the buyer for a certain period of time in order to support the buyer and get used to its newly acquired assets, infrastructure, systems, etc. For example, a large car dealership may choose to sell a department to a smaller, emerging car company, and part of its business includes the large car dealership that supports the emerging car company with its HR, IT and accounting divisions for about six months. In theory, ASD is pretty simple, and you`d rightly expect it. Imagine this: an ASD says, “Seller, you`re going to help the buyer for a while.” But what kind of “help” does the seller have? Below are some thoughts to better understand the time and effort involved in planning an ASD. Please understand with understanding that an ASD is extremely unique for the situation.
