Agents and distributors
Most Australian firms rely on agents or distributors to represent their business in international markets.
There is often confusion about the roles of agents and distributors, so it is important to understand the difference between the two before you enter into any discussions.
The definition and responsibilities of agents and distributors can also vary depending on the country or industry, so when dealing with prospective overseas representatives it is essential that you always confirm their specific roles and responsibilities.
This is general information and the actual role your partner undertakes will also depend on the individual agreement you have with them, so it’s important to confirm the details in a contract and not assume they will take on all activities an agent or distributor may generally undertake.
