Transfer of Ownership 
If you are:
    •  Selling your business to a new owner or
    •  Moving out of a home premises and wish to transfer the telephone lines to a friend or new tenant,
you will need to fill out a transfer of ownership forms.

This will ensure the Phone/Internet services are maintained using the same telephone numbers. A new account will usually be open in our billing system under the new owners details. 

If you are only changing contact people on the account such as when an employee leaves your business, you will not need to fill out a transfer of ownership form. You will simply need to add the new employees as contacts on the account.

Please note that both the original owner and previous owner will be required to sign these forms. If either party does not sign these forms then the account will remain in the original owners name and they will continue to incur charges.

The transfer of ownership will commence within 24 hours of the forms being returned to Better Telecom. If you provide the transfer forms late after a business is sold, then the charges will remain on the old owners account until the forms are received. A transfer of ownership cannot be backdated in time. It’s best to have these forms ready to be signed at the time of business exchange.
