What the difference between a share sale and an asset sale ?

There are two basic structures for transferring a business.  An asset sale is where the buyer purchases a collection of assets and legal rights (and sometimes liabilities) relating to the business.  An example of this might be a grocery shop business where the buyer purchases the business premises, fixtures, fittings and equipment used by the business, stock and takes on the employees.  Most transfers of small businesses are asset sales.
