Corporate Law for Retail Businesses

If you would like to set up a company entity, we can advise on what documentation will be required for your particular circumstances. For example, along with company registration we can prepare a shareholders agreement to clarify each shareholder’s obligations, requirements and how the shares must be dealt with if things go pear-shaped.

If you are selling a portion or the whole of your business or restructuring your business, we provide legal services from start to finish to ensure your interests are protected at all times.

We assist with all facets of corporate law, from drafting agreements, to meeting minutes and resolutions, to acting as your registered ASIC agent and notifying ASIC.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that transparency and clarity in costs and legal fees is important to every business. For this reason, we offer fixed fees where possible, including for reviewing or drafting your retail agreements, such as your sales and POS terms and conditions or returns policies.

As regulatory compliance is a broad practice area, the cost of our services can vary depending on the scope of your matter. For advisory matters, we suggest getting in touch with us and we can provide an estimate of costs.

We can assist in the very early stages of establishing your business to draft compliant legal documents from the get-go, or you can engage us any time to review your existing practices.

We generally recommend annual reviews as the Australian Consumer Law is often changing.

The short answer is, most likely yes. If your store staff have made a representation to a customer that a product can do something or is suitable for their particular needs, then it is likely the case that you will be liable if the product does not meet those needs, under the Australian Consumer Law. There have been a number of cases where retailers have been hit with ACCC penalties for this kind of conduct so it is important to train your staff in compliance.

We offer compliance training and can draft easy-to-understand staff guidelines. If you are interested, contact us for a fixed fee quote.
