Legal basis of drafting commercial contracts in Vietnam:

– Law No. 91/2015/QH13 dated November 24, 2015, The Civil Code.

– Commercial Law No.36/2005/QH11, passed by the National Assembly.

– Legislations refer to commercial contracts: Construction law, Tourism law, Publishing law, real estate trading law, intellectual property law, technology transfer law,…

– When Commercial contract relations having foreign elements refer to selling and purchasing goods with Vietnamese traders, Contracts for the International Sale of Goods in 1980 (CISG) is applicable. 

The features of commercial contracts:

The parties of commercial contracts.

Parties of commercial contracts are traders or one of whom is a trader (having business registration), such as enterprises, Business Households, individuals who have business registration, other organizations, and individuals conducting commerce-related activities. Parties who are traders are particular features of commercial contracts.

Formalities for commercial contracts.

According to commercial law in 2005, several commercial contracts must be made in writing or other forms of validity equivalent to documents: international goods sale and purchase contracts.

With the experience of drafting and consulting commercial contracts, Viet An law firm always recommends traders to make commercial contracts in writing to guarantee rights and obligations of parties of commercial contracts and to become dispute settlement basis arising during the contract performance period when agreeing on commercial contracts.

The fine level for breaching commercial contracts.

Because commercial relations are particular civil relations, several commercial contracts’ contents are more special than civil relations. Especially about fines against contract violations, according to commercial law in 2005, the fine level for breaching commercial contracts is 8% maximum of contracts’ value. If parties have the provision providing a fine level of more than 8%, this provision will be void.

 Statute of limitations for initiating lawsuits.

The statute of limitations for lawsuits applicable to commercial disputes shall be two years from the moment when the legitimate rights and interests are infringed. Therefore, in dispute circumstances, parties of commercial contracts should notice a statute of limitations for initiating lawsuits to bring a lawsuit to the dispute settlement agency at the right time. If not, parties may lose the right to bring a lawsuit to protect their right legally.
