Is your Business Legally Protected?

Business owners do not realise the full extent of their legal exposure until things go wrong. Don’t learn the hard way. Make sure your business is legally protected now!

The common areas where businesses risk legal exposure are:

  • Not having any or adequate trading terms and conditions which consequently do not allow them to:
    • Retain the title to any unpaid goods;
    • Enter upon their client’s/customer’s premises to reclaim any unpaid goods;
    • Recover any collection and/or legal fees incurred by the business in recovering outstanding debts from clients/customers;
    • Charge interest on any outstanding debts;
    • Limit their liability to clients/customers in relation to the provision of goods and/or services.
  • Not having or providing clients/customers with a privacy policy as required under the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012, which amends the Privacy Act 1988.
  • Not having any or adequate credit application forms where clients/customers are permitted to take accounts or pay accounts by instalments.
  • Not having credit application forms guaranteed by a third party to secure debts of clients/customers.
  • Not knowing the legal rights and obligations of businesses in relation to the provision of goods and/or services to clients/customers, particularly the consumer protection laws.
