Are you a consultant or supplier of goods or services? When you’re dealing with customers and clients — be they an individual or a business entity — it is essential important that your terms and conditions of trades are clear and can be easily understood.
Your terms and conditions should make them fully aware of your responsibility to them and their responsibility to you so you can ensure a happy relationship between you two and a healthy cash flow for your business. It’s important, then, that these terms and conditions of trade are spelt right and specifically tailored for your business.

Don’t put yourself or your business at risk of misunderstandings. If there is nothing in writing, then usually you have no proof. If you have your terms and conditions, then you have evidence to present before a court. But if your ‘evidence’ is not clear or has flaws, then you will be out of pocket when something goes wrong.
Our team can draft or review and amend your pre-written terms and conditions. We also draft Letters of Engagement and Contracts for you to deliver goods and services.
