Standard terms, unfair contracts and the Personal Property Securities Act (PPSA)

Date - 10 November 2017
Venue - Bartier Perry


Are your standard terms legally compliant? The ACCC is pursuing waste management company JJ Richards in Court over its customer terms, which include some quite common clauses. Are you at risk from regulatory action because of ‘unfair’ contract terms?

The PPSA has changed as it applies to hires and leases. Can you stay out of the PPSA now?

If you can’t, will your PPSA registrations stand up when the liquidator arrives? What are the common mistakes and what can be done to recover from a potential PPSA disaster?

How to make sure your registration is right – a workshop.

Bartier Perry offers a free morning of seminars to businesses on these issues. Come to some or come to all!

  • 9.00 - 9.50am The new small business unfair contracts law and credit card surcharge rules – what you need to know. Presented by Priti Joshi and Michael Cossetto.

  • 10.00 - 10.50am PPSA update - the changes that became law on 20 May, 2017. Hear about them from Oliver Shtein who advised Australia’s peak hire industry bodies. Can you stay out of the PPSA now?

  • 11.00 - 11.50am Recovering from a PPSA disaster. What the cases tell us can go wrong. How can mistakes be fixed? How do you use the PPSA to defend a liquidator’s claim? Presented by David Creais.

  • 12.00-12.50pm Getting registration right - a PPSA registration refresher using case studies.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
