Most businesses use standard form documents such as terms of trade, or terms and conditions, in their daily operations. These documents often contain clauses relating to one or more of the 11 statutes which have been replaced by the Contracts and Commercial Law Act 2017. This Act came into force on 1 September 2017.
This new legislation doesn’t alter the law on contracts and commercial dealings, but it combines a number of statutes which deal with – amongst other things – the sale and carriage of goods, contracts, and electronic transactions.
Make sure your standard form documents are reviewed to ensure that they align with the new Act. If you would like us to review your business documentation to ensure it’s up-to-date, please be in touch.
