Unfair contracts legislation extending to transactions with small business

Joseph Scarcella, Partner of Ashurst Lawyers Sydney, will ensure you understand the new laws of the Unfair Contracts Act and most importantly how they impact your business and what you need to do.

From 16 November 2016, standard clauses you always rely on may be deemed void.   The flow on effects could be significant. Consider the consequences if you are no longer able to recover enforcement costs or vary terms and conditions due to the clauses you rely upon being deemed void across your whole customer base in every contract!

This half day seminar has been designed to deliver the following specific outcomes for Credit Professionals:
- Understand the new legislation 
- Identify the specific impacts for your business
- Determine if your terms and conditions need to be amended
- Prepare for the change
- Tips for responding to small business that seek to challenge your debts using this legislation

Whether you transact with small business every day or only occasionally, this session will arm you with the tools and knowledge to do so with confidence. Your business can not afford to meander late into this legal minefield.
