General terms and conditions

The general terms and conditions state the rules that apply to both you and your customer and are part of the purchase agreement. Examples are provisions governing payment, delivery times, guarantees and disputes. In the Netherlands, several sector organisations, often together with consumer organisations, have mutually drawn up their own general terms and conditions. Please contact your sector organisationExternal link (MKB-Nederland) (Dutch) to find out if they have one for you to use.

Duty of disclosure

You are not compelled to draw up general terms and conditions. If you want to apply them, you must inform your customer before concluding the contract.
