Offering practical help for businesses
Too many businesses are entering international trade without proper contracts and are therefore taking unnecessary and potentially costly risks.
Slow payments, legal issues, dashed expectations and disenchantment with the exporting process are a result of businesses foregoing the need to establish terms and conditions specific to their international situation.
Many businesses pursue alternative routes to dispute resolution to avoid needless litigation, but given English law has a tendency to fuel disputes by omitting the options of mediation and arbitration, these approaches are damaging UK businesses’ long-term relationships with international customers and partners.
The Institute of Export & International Trade is delighted to offer four new international T&C templates exclusively for our Business Members, to allow businesses to export confidently, safe in the knowledge that they have a legal framework specific to their international needs.
Each of the templates also include Anti-Slavery and Bribery Act clauses, allowing businesses to trade with peace of mind.
There are four templates available:
- Distance (non-online) consumer goods services and digital content terms and conditions
- Online business and consumer goods services
- Terms and conditions for the supply of goods
- Terms and conditions for the supply of services
