General terms and conditions facilitate the conclusion of contracts. This is not only because you do not have to draw up new general terms and conditions for each agreement, but also because the general terms and conditions are accepted as a whole. This means that when someone enters into an agreement with you, he or she automatically accepts your terms and conditions (provided the conditions are not explicitly rejected). In addition, general terms and conditions ensure that both parties know where they stand. Because difficult situations are regulated in the general terms and conditions, conflicts and the associated costs can be limited as much as possible. The most important example of this is limiting liability.
How do I use these general terms and conditions in practice?
To use the general terms and conditions, you only have to declare them applicable and hand them over (this can also be done by e-mail) to the person with whom you are entering into the agreement. When you are agreeing to a deal with a customer, either include a document with your terms and conditions or link to a website where the customer can find your conditions. Besides that, we recommend you to give the customer the ability to download the terms and conditions in pdf format from your website (if you have one). If you are signing a a contract with a customer, attach the terms and conditions as well. It can also be helpful to refer to your terms and conditions in the invoice. Usually you include this in the footer with the rest of your company details.
What language should the terms and conditions for my business in the Netherlands be?
In the Netherlands this is usually Dutch or English, preferably both. Obviously this depends on your customers. If they are Dutch, it makes sense to have Dutch terms and conditions. If your clients are international and some of them Dutch, English terms usually suffice. If you decide to purchase these terms and conditions for services, you will receive a custom-made Dutch ánd English version.
Can these terms and conditions be used internationally?
Terms and conditions are part of contract law, so private law. Every country, even within the EU, has its own private law rules and norms. Therefore, these general terms and conditions for services are for businesses registered in the Netherlands. This, however, does not mean that you cannot use them when your Dutch business is dealing with foreign clients. In fact, we highly recommend you to make sure that your terms and conditions apply to all your dealing with Dutch and international clients, and not the terms of your customer.
