Updated Standard Terms and Conditions

January 2021

Do you export goods to customers based overseas (including EU countries)?

Following the ending of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020, many businesses in the UK will wish to exploit post-Brexit opportunities to the full. In particular, many will look to begin or continue to sell their goods abroad. Some may deal only or mainly with existing overseas customers, some may also wish to secure new customers or markets.

Whether you sell your goods into the EU or into any other overseas country, you should contract on suitable export sales terms to ensure that your interests are adequately protected.

This month the standard set of export sales of goods terms have been reviewed and updated. The contents of these revised terms assume that you will want to use a single set of export terms irrespective of the location of that buyer. These terms of export sale can be adapted to suit your particular circumstances.
