Unfair contract terms

Unfair contract terms

Attention all small business owners – Unfair contract terms legislation – Just over two weeks to go – don’t get caught out

On 1 November 16 the new ‘Unfair Contract Terms’ legislation will commence.  It will impact nearly every small business and you need to be ready for it.

So what’s it all about?  Essentially it applies to standard form contracts for the supply of goods or services where at least one party to the contract is a small business with less than 20 employees and the upfront price payable is less than $300,000 (OR $1 million if the contract is less than 3 years).  These contracts must not contain unfair contract terms.

What is a standard form contract?

It is a contract where the other party has little or no opportunity to negotiate the terms – that is, it is offered on a ‘take it or leave it’ basis.  For example, your terms of trade with your customers or terms applicable to enable a customer to have a credit account with your business.  Other examples are the terms of your quotes issued or supply agreements.  Nearly every business in Australia uses some type of standard form contract.

What is an unfair contract term?

This is decided by a Court but some examples of terms that may be unfair, include:

1.           terms that enable one party (but not another) to avoid or limit their obligations under the contract

2.           terms that enable one party (but not another) to terminate the contract

3.           terms that penalise one party (but not another) for breaching or terminating the contract

4.           terms that enable one party (but not another) to vary the terms of the contract.

If a term is unfair then it will be void.  For a limited time only, Parker Law QLD is offering a special offer – to spend up to 1 hour reviewing your standard form contracts and provide advice relating to unfair contract terms for a set fee of $295.00*.  Don’t delay – $295.00 is a small price to pay to obtain peace of mind that your standard form documents are not unfair.

 

 

* If due to the size of your standard form contracts it will take longer than 1 hour to read them and provide the advice, then you will be informed of this and what the anticipated extra cost may be and you can then decide whether or not to proceed.  This offer does not extend to construction standard contracts or contracts that relate to goods or services outside of Qld.  Parker Law QLD reserves the right to discontinue the special offer at any time.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should publish more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t talk about these subjects. To the next! All the best!!
