Local Business - Special Offer

This month Coutts are offering a special on both Employment Contracts and also Terms and Conditions. This is a great opportunity for businesses to get either or both of these documents in place or to review and amend any outdated versions.  
Terms and Conditions are essential to safeguard your business and make it clear what the customer can expect whilst complying with Australian Consumer Law. Coutts can prepare Terms and Conditions including to cover payment, scope of work, time frames, return/refund policies, warranties and disclaimers and all aligned with your existing business practices and business objectives.
If you have an employee, it’s important to have a written Employment Contract that clearly outlines everyone’s obligations and expectations.  As well as outlining the employee entitlements and duties, Coutts can draft special clauses that address the key risks to your business including around restraining employees after they cease working for you, confidentiality and ownership of the deliverables or things that the employee prepares while working for you.
So the question is, why not contact Coutts today?
