What should the terms and conditions of my business cover?

The terms and conditions used by a business very much depend on the type of the goods or services provided. The terms will generally cover:

  • when the contract is formed
  • quantities
  • the price of the goods or services and when payment is due
  • how delivery is to take place and when it will take place
  • when ownership of goods will transfer to the buyer
  • who will be responsible for the goods before delivery or before payment
  • the authority of sales agents to determine the content of the contract
  • what happens if the goods or services are not adequate
  • the extent of the business' liability if something goes wrong with the goods or services

Our Business Law team can provide further guidance on the content of your terms and conditions.
