In your general terms and conditions, you can lay down rules that are valid for all contracts that you conclude. To limit your business risks as much as possible, it is important that your general terms and conditions match your specific business situation. For example, if you sell products, there are different risks to renting out or providing services.
When drawing up your general terms and conditions, you must also take into account your insurances for certain risks and the organisation of your business processes.
In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, your company can fall back on your general terms and conditions. This stops you facing any legal surprises. For that reason, it is important that your terms and conditions are set up correctly and that they protect your business against commercial risks.
But drafting terms and conditions is only half the story. It is very important that your general terms and conditions are also used in the right way. If you do not use them properly, you run the risk of them being invalid.
