Commercial insights – August 2017

In this edition of Commercial insights we focus on recent legal developments which, where relevant, may impact on SMEs, professional practices, private businesses, companies and associations and highlight recent legislative changes to the Retail Leases Act in NSW, which import new protections for commercial tenants. Also, we discuss some recent cases in the franchise sector concerning disclosures made by a franchisor and a recent decision of the Queensland Supreme Court emphasising the importance of contractual rights under a shareholders’ agreement to protect minority shareholders. In addition, we remind professional practices to review their arrangements with their associated service entity to ensure continuing compliance with the relevant Tax Ruling.
