Sale of Goods Terms of Business Template

Terms of Business – Sale of Goods for Resale (Business to Business)


If you wish to use this document in a scenario that involves personal data, standard clauses for data protection and data processing are available in our GDPR & Data Protection Group.

These Terms of Business for the Sale of Goods for Resale provide a comprehensive series of protections for the Seller in a business to business transaction, carefully regulating the relationship between Buyer and Seller.

This template has been updated to include greater flexibility with regard to discounts; greater clarity and efficiency with respect to times through specific reference to “business days”; additional optional provisions pertaining to non-delivery; a broader reference to voluntary arrangements (now including IVAs and PVAs in addition to the original CVAs) when allowing the seller to recover goods which have not been paid for or otherwise dealing with default on the part of the buyer; and a more comprehensive governing law and jurisdiction clause, now covering matters outside the strict scope of the terms and conditions or contract.

These terms of business contain enhanced provision with regard to risk and title. Clause 10 provides for the retention of title by the seller in the goods until full payment is received. This provision can either be a simple reservation of title clause by deleting the optional sub-Clause 10.3, or it can be extended to an all sums or all monies clause by including that option.

The retention of title provision in these conditions does not allow for acquiring title in subsequently manufactured goods. If you are to supply goods for the purpose of manufacture it is recommended that you use the Terms of Business for the Sale of Goods for Manufacture.

This document should be used when both Buyer and Seller are UK-based companies, acting in the course of their business. If the parties are wishing to enter a long term supply of goods relationship the Long Term Supply Agreement may be more appropriate.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
