On June 13th 2014 the rules regarding selling goods online, through catalogues, off-premises and door-to-door are changing in order to comply with the implementation of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI 2013 No. 3134.
Many micro-business owners use at least one of these methods to sell goods and services and we all need to be sure that we are complying fully with the new rules. The Regulations extend to England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The regulations also extend to services so those of us who do not necessarily sell tangible items cannot ignore them; they also apply to digital downloads such as software and e-books or music and video.
