Bulk Sales Affidavit Form

Bulk sales affidavit is very similar to the bill of sale form and they serve the same key purpose but still there is some difference in there. A bill of sale form is used for selling and buying common items i.e. vehicles, property, merchandizes and other items but the bulk sale affidavit is strictly used for selling the business with all assets and transferring the ownership to the new buyer. This way we can say that when a company owner sells the company to another person with all the assets including equipment, machinery, furniture, building, plants, suppliers, clients and customers, they need to sign this bulk sale affidavit as the legal proof of transfer of ownership to the new owner.

This affidavit also indicates that from the date when the ownership is transferred, the new owner will be held responsible for all deals, orders and other stuff related to the company.
