Who Wins the Battle of the Pre-Printed Forms?

Many small and medium-sized business owners use preprinted purchase orders, order acknowledgments or delivery receipt forms. Many of these forms can be obtained on the internet. However, while convenient, the forms are dangerous to use. Many of the preprinted forms obtain on the internet or from forms providers come with detailed legal terms written in small print on the back of the form. This is usually called "boilerplate language." However, it can get the user in trouble if not used properly.

La Significancia del Franchise Disclosure Document

El Franchise Disclosure Document (o documento de divulgación de franquicia) (FDD) es un documento legal que se proporciona al franquiciado con respecto a la información de divulgación relacionada con el funcionamiento de una franquicia. El franquiciado es aquel que tiene la intención de comprar una franquicia. Las franquicias que operan en los Estados Unidos están parcialmente reguladas por la Federal Trade Commission (Comisión Federal de Comercio) (FTC). La FTC establece que se deben cumplir ciertos criterios para garantizar que las franquicias proporcionen a los posibles franquiciados (compradores potenciales) toda la información necesaria necesaria para que la persona tome una decisión bien informada sobre si o no para convertirse en franquiciado en la empresa.
