At ContractStore we have recently updated our collection of Brexit clause templates. These are designed to help companies doing business between the EU and UK to cope with the problems of Britain leaving the EU.
If you are an agent or distributor of a company in the EU or you regularly trade with companies in Europe (or vice versa), you can mitigate the Brexit risks by agreeing in advance with your trading partners how you will handle the difficulties if and when they occur.
It is never a good idea to use someone else’s terms and conditions on your website. For a start, this is likely to be a breach of copyright and the owner of the other website could bring proceedings against you. Moreover, no two businesses are exactly the same and using someone else’s wording, without carefully checking that it is appropriate for your business, can cause real problems.
The continuing uncertainty makes preparing for Brexit a problem for most businesses. This topic was explored at a recent seminar hosted by the Guardian. Our director, Giles Dixon, attracted plenty of interest when referring to ContractStore’s Brexit clause templates, which can be used by companies dealing with Europe to mitigate the risks.
If you have long term relationships with suppliers, buyers, agents or consultants and if those relationships involve EU citizens or trading with other countries in the EU, how do you plan for Brexit? A Brexit clause in your long term contracts could be the answer. Giles Dixon of ContractStore explains.
