But there is a greater responsibility related to this practice that your employees probably do not know about. When your employees enter into «incidental agreements» with your customers, your distributor may violate your indirect credit contracts with your lenders. For example, the Massachusetts Dealer Agreement (M-T Agreement) contains a language that prohibits these «incidental agreements.» As part of the M-T agreement, a trader who will hand over his contracts to M-T gives a positive image of the fact that the contract submitted to him is the only agreement between the customer and the distributor with respect to the transaction.

What is missing is a page-page option – show the original text and translated side by side. This allows a comparison between the two texts. In order for an annex to become mandatory, it must meet the same criteria as all contracts: (i) the offer; (ii) adoption; (iii) consideration iv) security; and v) the intention to establish legal relationships. In the primary contract, special attention should be paid to the choice of the legal provision and the entire contractual clause. The choice of the legal provision may have different consequences that affect the secondary letter.
