What? Yet more rights for consumers?

From 1 October 2014, amendments to the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 gave consumers a new right to claims damages from a business which is found to be in breach of them.

In order to highlight the issues affecting all businesses who supply either goods or services to consumers, Rollits is holding a FREE breakfast briefing on Friday, 23 January 2015 at 9am at their offices in Wilberforce Court, Hull to update business owners on the latest risk to their bank balance.

Partner George Coyle, who heads Rollits' Regulatory Team said:

"All businesses that trade with consumers need to be up to speed with the amendments to the Consumer Protection from Unfair Commercial Practices Regulations as they expose those who fall foul of these regulations to significantly increased financial risks.  It is bad enough to be convicted and fined but it will add 'insult to injury' to then have to pay the consumer damages as well"
