- Standard form small trade contracts: the imposition of a requirement for “fairness”by Evie Bello on May 24, 2022 at 10:59 pm
The Fair Trading Amendment Act 2021 (the Amendment Act) comes into force in August 2022 and makes a number of changes to NZ’s Fair Trading Act 1986. Most significantly, the Amendment Act extends the existing unfair contract term (UCT) regime to small trade contracts. The purpose of this extension is to protect small businesses from UCTs found in non-negotiable, “take it or leave it” arrangements. In practice, the upcoming changes mean that certain standard clauses commonly found in small trade terms, such as those extremely limiting or denying liability, may need to be reconsidered for compliance.
