2. Goods: The object of a sales contract is the merchandise. Any type of personal property other than achievable receivables and money is considered a “commodity.” Service contracts are not considered a sales contract. Ownership is governed by a separate law, the “Transfer of Ownership Act.” A sales contract is an agreement between the buyer and the seller for the sale and delivery of goods, securities and other personal items. In the United States, domestic sales contracts are governed by the single code of commerce. International sales contracts are covered by the United Nations Convention on International Goods Contracts (ICSG), also known as the Vienna Convention on The Right to Sell. The classification of goods in business law can be difficult to understand. In business law, the term “goods” refers to all goods, except for achievable receivables and money. These include the cultivation of crops, herbs and other objects related to the land or that are part of the country, as well as actions and actions.
There are three main types of goods: existing goods, future goods and contingent goods. Existing goods are goods that exist physically at the time of the sales contract and belong to the seller. Existing contracts may continue to be divided into two categories: subject to the legal provisions applicable over time, a sales contract may be implicitly, verbally or in writing, or partly in writing, or even by the conduct of the parties. This is the general property transferred under a separate transfer contract of particular property, which is transferred in the event of collateral, i.e. the ownership of property is transferred to the pfandoder or on the legs, while the property rights remain in the hands of the pawnbroker. In a sales contract, therefore, there must be an absolute transfer of ownership. It should be noted that the physical supply of goods is not essential to the transfer of ownership. The international sales contract is the most used among business relations between companies in different countries. This agreement defines the rights and obligations of the parties (exporter-seller and importer-buyer) and corrective action to be taken with Derito.
Multinational companies generally have their own specific international sales contracts as well as general terms of sale and purchase.
