Legal Pack for Sales Agents

Sales Agent Agreement / Sales Agent Contract Template


As a sales agent, you should understand the importance of a sales agency agreement / contract.


Can you afford to not have a sales agent contract? Or to have an out-of-date or improperly drafted sales agent agreement?


FACT: Without a properly drafted sales agent contract, you are potentially massively under-protected.


Our Legal Pack has been designed specifically to satisfy the legal requirements of UK sales agents when dealing with UK principals for the sale of goods and services.

  • Maximise your protection under the Commercial Agents Regulations
  • Protect Your Business
  • Know The Law
  • Take Control

As a sales agent you have a set of rights under the EC Commercial Agents Regulations (CAR). Why? Sales agents lack normal 'employment' rights, as they are not directly employed (they are self-employed). Therefore the CAR provides agents with security and stability in their profession. However if you allow the principal to arrange the agency agreement it may well limit your security and rights.

In the event of unlawful termination or breach of contract by the principal, sales agents will normally have a claim for loss of future income, or 'damages' resulting. These damages can take the form of either 'compensation' or 'indemnification', depending on the terms of the sales agent contract in place (or lack of such). Do you know which should apply to maximise your best interests?

Damages claims can be greatest where the agency agreement in place is correctly drafted with the sales agent in mind – rather than the principal.

Then in the event of a dispute with a principal, you can potentially use the full extent of the law against that principal to maximise your legitimate claim for your loss of future income.

Now by using AgentBase's specially designed and exclusive Legal Pack, you can utilise the expertise of specialist agency law solicitors to your advantage. This pack utilises their expertise and experience to enable you to understand key legal issues, and to prepare your own agreement (in direct consultation with them if required at no extra cost) using our sales agent agreement template, that will maximise your rights and protection.


The Legal Pack is designed to be a 'solution in a box' for all basic requirements. You will not have to spend any more money on legal preparations (unless you require specific changes or require additional input from the lawyers), and you can use the sales agent contract template as many times as you like. It gives you essential peace of mind.

We and our lawyers believe this represents exceptional value for money for you.
