The Canadian Business Contracts Handbook helps small-business owners to understand hundreds of standard contract clauses, such as those found in partnership agreements, lease agreements, and contracts for purchase or sale of goods or a business.

Small businesses have to deal with contracts on a regular basis, but most small businesses don't have in-house lawyers to ensure all loose ends are tied. Small-business owners and managers will save time and avoid misunderstandings with this handy guide to understanding and negotiating business contracts in Canada.

Using everyday language, author Nishan Swais takes readers step-by-step through standard clauses and explains their meanings. He pinpoints potential problems in contracts, and clarifies legal jargon in simple terms for the layperson.

While it takes a great deal of hard work to make a small business successful, it can also come down to paperwork. A well-written contract can make or break a business. Having a good understanding of standard business contracts and being able to negotiate and make changes to your own are critical skills essential to the effective running of a small business.

The CD-ROM included with this book can be installed on your home computer, and contains quizzes, checklists, and sample clauses that can help Canadian small-business owners understand, negotiate, and create their own legally binding contracts. Forms provided are in PDF and Microsoft Word formats.
