If you decide to hand over the goods for sale, then you will be faced with the need to complete certain documents. It is better to sign a contract of agency between the principal and the attorney for the sale of products. Please note that your attorney will execute transactions on your behalf and at your expense.
Indicate in the contract the minimum selling price of the goods, including VAT. Determine a deadline for implementation. Please stipulate that the attorney is obliged to follow your instructions regarding the sale of the goods. In this case, the attorney must be responsible for the safety of the goods and documents attached to the execution of the order.
The attorney must provide you with a progress report and trade-related documentation. Be sure to indicate that if the attorney transfers the performance of his obligations to another person, then the attorney is responsible for the improper execution of your orders.
List your obligations in the contract. You must provide the attorney with all the documents and product certificates necessary to carry out the assignment. It is your responsibility to communicate your objections to the report to the attorney within the first ten days.
It is your responsibility to reimburse the attorney for the actual costs incurred in the sale of the goods. Add a clause to the agreement that the principal and the attorney are obliged to protect the confidentiality of information received from both parties.
Determine and indicate in the contract the remuneration for your agent, expressed as a percentage of the total amount of transactions that he will make with customers. Specify the currency in which you will pay within ten days after receiving the report.
The costs that you are required to reimburse usually include transport costs, confirmed by tickets, the costs of loading and unloading, as well as storage of products. Some points can be specially agreed by both parties.
If you decide in the future to cancel this order in whole or in part before your attorney concludes transactions with buyers, then it is your responsibility to pay remuneration for previous transactions and reimburse the attorney for the costs incurred by him until the order is canceled.
Remember that the agreement will enter into force from the moment it is signed and will be considered valid until the obligations stipulated in it are fulfilled. Provide for force majeure.
