COMMERCIAL AGENTS AND DISTRIBUTORS
Businesses will often engage with commercial agents and distributors to help them sell their products or services. This could be for several reasons, such as:
- The agent/ distributor may have a large network of customers in a specific sector that the principal/ supplier wishes to tap into; or
- The agent/ distributor may have specific industry knowledge that the principal/ supplier wishes to utilize to expand its business.
Whatever the reason, commercial agents and distributors are a useful and cost-effective way for companies to expand their business. Agencies and distributors are however fundamentally different from one another, and it is important to understand the differences between the two and the legal ramifications for you and your business.
