Terms and conditions

Contracts, including terms and conditions setting out the basis on which goods or services are sold, are a vital part of business. Whether goods and services are sold on a standard basis or to specification, standard terms and conditions of sale are a core part of most businesses. The specific, or unique, aspects of the sale (eg, any unique specifications, quantity, delivery dates) are set out in a separate order. Make sure that you protect your business interests with professionally prepared Ts & Cs.

Standard terms and conditions for the sale of goods or supply of services help to make everyone aware of their rights and obligations from the outset and allow the parties to focus their energy on agreeing the specifics of a particular order. When it comes to consumers, there is in addition a considerable amount of legislation, aimed at protecting consumers, which must be taken into account when drafting Ts & Cs.
