Contract Review

When presented with a contract to sign or when attaching your terms to a contract, it is critical to ensure it covers exactly what you need it to and that it shields you and your business from any risks.

Our team of contract experts can check whether your agreement:

  • Contains everything you need
  • Is clear and unambiguous
  • Conforms with any applicable laws or regulations (such as IR35 or GDPR)
  • Contains any clauses that could be unfair or potentially dangerous to you

We check the small print, so you don’t have to!

Review and update your terms and conditions

Why do I need terms and conditions?

Simply put, if you do not have T&Cs in place, you are putting your business at risk. They are crucial when it comes to each party understanding their obligations and responsibilities to one another.

 

Are your terms and conditions fit for purpose? 

Terms and conditions are that annoying document that don’t seem all that important until a problem occurs. There is always something that takes precedence over checking if your terms of business remain fit for purpose. As a small business, you’re perhaps more interested in getting that new client, sorting out your marketing plan or chasing payments that have not yet been received. But checking if your terms are fit for purpose takes just a few minutes and could save you thousands in the long run.

 

Why do you need terms and conditions drafted bespoke to your business? 

You may have been lucky so far where both your business-to-business transactions and consumer contracts are problem-free. In reality, things sometimes go wrong, some clients may try and get out of paying or not do what you need them to do in order for you to complete your services. This is when your terms and conditions come in, to provide certainty, clarity and compliance and to minimise the risk of commercial disputes and consumer complaints.

While you can contract verbally or by exchange of email, you should always ensure the communications make it clear that any contractual negotiations will be subject to your terms and conditions.

 

Ensure your terms and conditions work specifically for you

Investing in some terms and conditions will save you time, money and stress in the future. Standardising your terms of business and ensuring that they work for your business creates certainty both for you and your clients. It also limits your liability, preserves cashflow and increases your business’ efficiency.

Businesses who use other company’s terms or download templates rather than creating their own, run the risk of entering into contracts which don’t adequately reflect their way of dealing, meaning they fail to provide proper protection to the agreement or may not even be legally enforceable.

Allowing us to review your terms will eradicate these risks and result in terms and conditions which work for you and your business.

Terms and conditions require careful consideration and may throw up unexpected questions or issues including payment clauses, effects of termination, limitations of liability, intellectual property and any guarantees.
