Terms of Business

It is vitally important to have an up to date set of terms and conditions for your business. They are the legal basis on which you are willing to do business with your customers and should be one of the first legal documents created.

Terms and conditions are used again and again in everyday business dealings. They are also there to protect you so that in the event that a dispute arises, you can resolve it as quickly and cheaply as possible. They also help with ensuring that all important matters are not overlooked, as well as helping you to provide good customer service by avoiding mismatched expectations.

We can help make sure your terms and conditions of business are up to date and that you are protected.

T&C's Makeover

For only £200 plus VAT, we will check your standard business terms. If nothing needs changing and we are unable to offer any alterations to better protect your business, we will give you your money back!

Debt Recovery

Recovering unpaid accounts can be time consuming and costly, affecting cash flow and draining vital resources. Whatever the size of your business it’s important to keep on top of your debtors and make sure you get paid whatever money you are legally entitled to.

There are steps you can take to minimise the number of debtors, such as having an up to date set of business terms and conditions, but there will inevitably be occasions when you are left with no option but to initiate legal proceedings in order to recover debts.

We can help you recover monies you are owed from your customers in as quick and trouble free way as possible. Often a letter from our debt recovery team is sufficient to secure payment and avoid any litigation.

If further action is required we will advise you on the debt recovery methods available to you and how best to recover the money you are owed. If we think the costs involved in recovering your debt will be disproportionate to the amount of money owed then we will advise you of your best course of action.

If you decide to commence legal proceedings we will aim, where possible, to recover not just the money outstanding but also interest and our own legal fees.

Our debt recovery services include:
  • Letter before action
  • Negotiation of payment terms
  • Issue of Court legal proceedings
  • Enforcement of Court orders
  • Preparation of case to trial, should it get to that stage

A shareholders’ agreement allows the shareholders (or members) of a company to agree beforehand on important issues such as matters that will always require a unanimous vote to pass. These agreements are very important if you have invested your own funds in a new company, as there is nothing legally to prevent a director being removed by a simple majority of votes.

There are many reasons why you might need a shareholders’ agreement, but the main advantage is that it allows the founding members to make an agreement between themselves that would not be allowed in the company’s Articles of Association.
