Unfair Contract Term (UCT) protections for small business come into force

After many years of advocating strongly for protection for our member small businesses from unfair terms in standard form contracts, and achieving stronger thresholds in the Senate, ALNA welcomed the new laws finally coming into effect on Saturday 12 November 2016.

When members sign new standard form contracts that are less than $300,000 for 12 month contracts, or less than $1 million for multi-year contracts, from now on you will be protected from unfair terms in those contracts. Where existing contracts are varied, the terms in those contracts may also potentially be subject to UCT protections.

This will be a major change in the contracting culture with small business in Australia. Over the next few years we expect to see a marked improvement in equity in the contractual arrangements between our major suppliers and our members.

The ACCC will begin enforcing the new law this week.
