About this sales agent’s agreement

An export marketing agency contract for use by any business selling abroad. Your agent is probably a company. It certainly has its own warehouse and appropriate logistics and control systems.

The most important feature is that the agent holds stock of your product. You can select his precise duties depending on what you have agreed. There are options for all aspects of importation: delivery, transport, insurance, regulations, duties.

There is a basic option on the question of whether he collects your money and banks it locally or you collect as you would do in the Commonwealth of Australia. Each option leads to different outcomes in other parts of the document. We deal with all of them clearly and in language your agency people will understand.

There may be a fine line between a distribution arrangement and an agency arrangement. The only fundamental difference is that the distributor buys from you while the agent never does so.

Here we have provided crisp, no-nonsense alternative scenarios that will work in practice, but you will have to edit out the options not required.

Suitable for wide range of businesses, but detailed requirements are for you to choose. You may have a tech or design business where IP rights protection is vital, or you may be selling cement, where it is not.

Key features

  • Agent at home or abroad
  • optional heavy protection of intellectual property
  • Agent paid by commission
  • Many options for level of involvement of agent in dealing with regulations and customs duties

Opportunity Needed
14 May 2016
The service is very good and useful for my clients. What I would like to have is maybe a subscription based opportunity to have a permanent schedule of what we have ordered and the opportunity to down load updated orders we have paid.

Comprehensive But Lacked Detail
03 November 2013
A comprehensive document that covered the main issues we needed in the agreement. Would have been better to have more detail about the document and the different variations available before purchasing (e.g. screen shots or contents page) as I had to guess a little as to which one was most appropriate. Didn't know until I had paid and downloaded whether it was the correct one.
