Newcastle Commercial Lawyers FAQs

There are a lot of legal requirements aspiring entrepreneurs need to understand, to ensure their business is well protected.

Coutts is part of a community of highly qualified professionals who can assist you in either starting, growing or changing your business structure.

Aside from being lawyers, Coutts can assist you in recommending and connecting you with the right people such as accountants, financial planners, tax and immigration advisors, insurance and finance brokers.

Buying or selling a business is a major transaction. A lawyer will be able to advise you on important legal issues to protect your interests and ensure the process runs smoothly. Engaging a lawyer for this work is always recommended.

Sometimes contracts need to be written. In general, though, a legally binding contract can be:

  • Oral
  • In writing
  • Partly oral and partly in writing
  • Made by people’s actions

A contract may be made up of several different documents, emails and conversations.

Most contracts are enforced in court. If the other party breaches the contract, you can go to court to try to collect damages or obtain ‘specific performance’. However, some contracts have other alternative dispute resolution clauses which include arbitration and/or mediation as the first point of call.

  • Be sure you have read and understood the entire contract. If you do not understand it, don’t sign it until you do understand it.
  • Be sure everyone signs & dates the contract
  • Contract pages should have the numbering “1 of xx pages”.
  • Be sure all warranties etc that are incorporated by reference are attached to the basic contract.
  • If the contract is a form contract, *all* entries must be filled out (if the space does not apply use “NA” etc).

The initial director or directors can appoint more directors in the future – as follows:

  1. The new director must be at least 18 years old.
  2. The new director must consent to their appointment before they are appointed.
  3. The current directors must appoint the new director by recording the appointment and signing the record.
  4. The company must then notify ASIC of the appointment by lodging an ASIC Form 484 within 28 days after the appointment. You can download the form from the ASIC website and lodge it with ASIC.
