What are the main issues for a company appointing a Buyer’s Representative?
Role of the representative. This will vary depending on what’s required. Our form covers locating suitable suppliers for designated goods & inspecting goods that are ordered by the company. Also, from time to time dealing with warehousing, export arrangements etc. and generally following up on any requests for information or action.
Restrictions on authority. Make it clear that the buyer’s representative does not have any authority to make any commitment to a supplier unless this is given in writing in particular circumstances.
Fee arrangements. This is often related to the value of sales – e.g. a percentage of the net purchase price of goods in the country. There may also be expenses for travel and accommodation when following up enquiries in the territory on behalf of the company
Confidentiality. This is an important provision, given the nature of the work: the company instructing the representative does not want their plans to become widely known in the territory.
