Who can use these Conditions of Sale?
Any manufacturer or supplier of goods/products who is selling in the UK or overseas can use these conditions of sale
What are these Conditions of Sale for?
These conditions of sale are in plain English, comprehensive and designed for use whenever your business is making a sale of its products.
You will get a package of documents consisting of the Conditions of Sale and explanatory notes, plus a duplicate set of Conditions in a one page small print format. So, you can use it on the back of your invoice when sending a quotation, confirmation of order or invoice.
What are the main issues?
Terms of sale need to make it clear that they apply whenever the seller makes a sale.
Pricing and acceptance of quotations should also be covered, with a time limit for acceptance.
Delivery arrangements are important and a seller should avoid a firm commitment to delivery dates if possible – our terms provide for all delivery dates to be estimated only. Incoterms may apply on export sales if there is a letter of credit.
Passing of risk and ownership needs to be dealt with.
Where the sale involves installation or storage, these should also be covered.
Warranties and seller’s liability need to be specified with appropriate limits on the liability of the seller and a duty on the buyer promptly to notify any defects
Intellectual property protection for the seller is recommended, especially in the case of sales of goods for export.
Force majeure is also advisable so that the seller has no liability if some unforeseen event occurs.
