UK - CMA Issues Further Short Form Guidance Building on the guidance already issued by the Competition and Markets Authority relating to the Consumer Rights Act last year, further short form guidance has been published on unfair contract terms for businesses. The CMA has published further 'at-a-glance' guides designed to help business have a better understanding of what terms are likely to be considered fair or unfair. These guides are applicable in a B2C contract. Even more relevant is that these guides are targeted at small businesses who may not have previously had legal advice. This means that small business will ensure that when they contract with consumers, they are contracting in a fair way. The guides cover an overview of the main mistakes for businesses in a B2C relationship and what they should avoid when writing the terms and conditions of their sales. The guides include top tips for the terms and common myths about contract terms. It should be noted that these guides cannot be relied upon in substitution for legislation, therefore the Consumer Rights Act should always be referred to. The series of 'at-a-glance' guides are available here. For more information, please contact Nathan Akhavan-Moossavi.
