Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What is your specific query about this?
Whilst there have been moves to limit the use of such rolling contracts, the legal protection has only been introduced to protect consumers, meaning the private individuals not acting in the course of a business. You are clearly acting as a business here and as such these exclusions would not apply to you. The use of rolling contracts is still legal and enforceable in business to business relationships, as long as it has been clearly incorporated in the contract between the parties. So it is a matter of checking the agreement which you had agreed to when entering into a legal relationship with the other party to see if these terms were clearly incorporated and if they were, they can still be legally binding and enforceable.
Of course it does not mean you have to continue with the contract and you can try and break it early although it would of curs be at the risk of the other side challenging you over it and going as far as court in some circumstances to try and seek compensation for the breach of contract.
