Why You Should Use Contracts in Your Business

Five common misconceptions about contracts include:

  1. “I can draft our company’s contracts myself.”
  2. “We always avoid litigation anyway, so contracts are irrelevant.”
  3. “We don’t want to raise issues with our customers’ contracts as it may offend them.”
  4. “We wouldn’t argue with the terms offered by our supplier as they seem fairly reasonable.”
  5. “We have already been ‘commercial’ in our verbal negotiations, so no need for a contract.”

Unfortunately, these methods of governing commercial relationships still seem to prevail in the business community.

According to the 2015 Litigation Trends Survey, over a third of UK businesses listed contractual disputes as a top area of concern in the future. Prevention is always better (and much cheaper) than cure.

A Quick Word About GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulations came into force on 25th May 2018. The European Commission has advised that the fines for any data breaches will be:-

  • 20 million Euros or 4% of global annual turnover, whichever is the greater (for example, non-compliant international data transfers)
  • 10 million Euros or 2% of global annual turnover, whichever is the greater (for example, non-compliant cyber-security measures)

Further information from the Information Commissioner’s Office can be found at https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/business/.

All our legal and HR document templates have been reviewed in the light of these new regulations and updated, wherever necessary.  So, if you supply into much larger organisations, then don’t be the weakest link and ensure that all your documents are GDPR-compliant.
