Terms and Conditions – Sale, Purchase, Hire
How do I protect myself when buying or selling things?
Terms and conditions of sale or purchase set out the contract between you and the seller/buyer – this is important because without these we have to look to general rules, and what might have been said in emails or conversations or on the purchase order or quote and this can leave a lot of gaps.
We can come along side you whether you need terms of purchase, terms of sale or even hire terms to ensure they cover, what quality of goods or service can be expected, how price is calculated, when payment is expected, what happens if payment is not received and how you can limit your liability if things go wrong.
Sponsorship and Scholarship Agreements
How do I sponsor someone? How I do I make sure my reputation is protected? How do I make sure the sponsorship money is spent properly?
Sponsoring an event or a person whether it’s in the sports arena or the educational arena is a great way to give back to the community and to contribute to the future. However, it is important to ensure that it is money well spent and the person/event you are sponsoring does not diminish your reputation. We can come alongside you to put in place documentation which clearly sets out the expectations and obligations of both parties.
Referral, Distribution, Agency and Commission Arrangements
How do I make money from passing work onto others?
Businesses often work together with a financial incentive for doing so. The most common way is to pay a commission or a referral fee. It is a tricky path to navigate to avoid any connotations of bribery and to ensure that any relevant professional obligations are fulfilled as well as determine exactly when payment should be made. We can come alongside you to draft the necessary documents and advise whether other alternative structures may be more appropriate such as distribution or agency agreements.
How do I keep my confidential information safe?
When we start discussions with other parties with a view to developing business or products it often involves us sharing sensitive information. The information often has to be shared before we can get a true sense of whether we want to work with these people so it’s important to protect your sensitive business information. We can come alongside you and prepare confidentiality also known as non-disclosure agreements to suit your circumstances and information.
