Thanks for your question.


I'm sorry but the only legislation which implies cooling off periods in to contracts is the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. As the name suggest, this applies to consumer contracts and not to business to business contracts as you state this is. No cooling off period is available under the contract by implication and you will have to refer to the express contractual terms of the contract to see if and how to terminate.

Does this also apply to distance selling, i.e under pressure at my office, and not at their office ?

Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.



Yes, I'm afraid so - the fact that it is a business to business contract for goods/services override this.


I hope this clarifies, if so please kindly click accept.


Kind regards.
