When you carry out business with another company, it is important to be clear on your terms of trade.  The Corporate & Commercial Team at Talbots Law will ensure you operate on terms that suit you and benefit your business.

Our Corporate & Commercial Team help protect your business by advising on and drafting practical terms and conditions that support your business values. We will prepare terms which fit in with the way your business operates.  In business, a company’s terms and conditions set out the conduct that regulate your trading.  They set out the details surrounding:

  • How and when payment will be made
  • How long your quotes are valid
  • Cancellations
  • Delivery and delivery charges
  • Non-payment
  • Confidentiality
  • Protecting you agains claims
  • Any guarantees or warranties offered

If you need advice on a supplier’s terms and conditions, we will explain matters in plain English to ensure you understand what you are agreeing to. If those terms don’t work for you, we will advise you on the next steps and/or manage negotiations with the other party.

Terms and conditions FAQs

Do my terms and conditions have to be in writing?
Yes.  If there is nothing written down it is very difficult to prove your case in court if a dispute arises.

What are the top issues to consider when drafting terms and conditions?

  • when will  your contract be deemed to have completed?
  • indemnities -should I give them or when should I ask for one?
  • when is time of the essence of your contract, if at all?
  • can I limit my liability at all?
  • who will own the rights to what you design in the course of a contract?

Don’t leave formalising your terms and conditions until a dispute arises because it will be too late..  A clear set of terms and conditions help reduce the risk of dispute.
