What should be in a commercial contract under Dutch law?
Under Dutch law, a commercial contract can contain all kinds of provisions. Common provisions cover the delivery of products or services, the guarantees that are stipulated and the subject of liability, as well as the applicability of the law and the competent authority in the event of a business dispute.
Naturally, it is advisable to accurately describe the services or products you offer or acquire under the contract. The vast majority of discussions in contract law stem from unclear provisions, unspoken intentions or loopholes in the contract. Unclear contracts are a missed opportunity and a breeding ground for discussions one would rather avoid.
