This document can be used in order to create an ongoing commercial agreement for one business to sell goods or products to another business. The document is for use where both businesses are based in England and Wales. The document creates a legal agreement between the parties for the ongoing sale of goods or products, with one party being the seller (or supplier) and the other being the purchaser (or customer). The agreement can include a wide range of provisions to ensure that both parties are aware of their responsibilities and obligations under the agreement. For example, the following matters can be addressed within the document:
The document should be used for commercial sales arrangements where both parties are businesses. It is therefore not appropriate where the sale of the goods is from a business to an individual (non-business) customer. This is because individual consumers have different legal rights to business customers.
It is important to note that this document is for use where the parties are businesses within England and Wales, and where the goods are to be sold within the United Kingdom. The agreement is for the ongoing provision of goods only and is not appropriate where a business wishes to sell a stand alone asset as a sole transaction.
It is also useful to note that, where the parties are selling services as opposed to goods, a Services Contract should be used.

Once the agreement has been signed, it will commence on the date stated within the agreement. The parties may also wish to make use of a non-compete agreement, to define and address any competition issues between the parties.
