Business contracts

There are a wide range of contracts which often need to be used in the course of business. Ensure that you only use professionally written agreements to protect your business interests.

Before you enter into a formally binding contract, a Letter of intent (or Heads of terms) can help to set out the key terms of the potential agreement. Meanwhile, a Non-disclosure agreement can ensure that confidential information discussed in the course of negotiations remains confidential. If a service is being provided between two businesses, a Services agreement should set out the terms. When it comes to business expansion, a Distribution agreement, Sales agency agreement or a Subcontracting agreement can help you retain some degree of control. At the end of a contract, you'll need to give appropriate notice in a Contract termination letter - or you may decide to transfer the benefits of a contract to another business using a Letter assigning a contract.
