An agency contract is entered into when a person, called an agent, is authorized by another person, the so-called Principal, to act on behalf of the Principal. A sponsor who assigns an agency to an agent establishes a legal relationship with the agent. Agency contracts are important for businesses because you can meet with them if you ask a salesperson, accountant, lawyer, or other third party to do business on your behalf. The client should give the agent legal, viable and concrete instructions on how to perform the subject matter of the commercial agent contract. Sometimes the agent is faced with a dilemma in carrying out the instructions given to him. Article 973 Article 2 of the Code gave officials the power to derogate from the contracting entity`s instructions where necessary and in the interest of the contracting entity depending on the circumstances. However, the agent should have been in a situation where he was unable to obtain the contracting entity`s authorisation to derogate from the instructing party. The contractor shall also be required to communicate the details of the derogation to the contracting entity as soon as possible. If the agent has entered into a transaction with a third party on his behalf and at the expense of the payer, the agent is liable to the third party, even if the payer has been designated in the transaction or has been concluded with a third party in a direct relationship with the execution of the transaction. However, in the case of a transaction which the intermediary carries out with a third party on behalf of and at the expense of the contracting entity, the rights and obligations derive directly from the contracting entity (Article 1005(1) of the Civil Code).
The Agency effectively consists of two types of relationships: manufacturers and suppliers of goods often appoint agents who act on their behalf in the field of sales promotion, both in the manufacturer`s country of origin and abroad. As a rule, a formal agreement is signed that sets out the commission received by the agent, the territory, the duration and other conditions under which the client and the agent will do business together. The Civil Code of the Russian Federation (Civil Code) regulates and regulates the appointment of agents in Russia. In addition, commercial intermediation services are governed by international agreements and/or agreements, namely: a contracting authority is responsible for contractual agreements that the payer rejects with third parties where the contractor was expressly, implicitly or manifestly entitled to conclude such contracts. A commercial agent contract is a legally valid contract that creates a trust relationship in which the first party (“the principal”) agrees that the actions of a second party (“the agent”) bind the client to subsequent agreements of the agent, as if the contracting authority had itself concluded the subsequent agreements. The power of the agent to retain the client is generally considered to be a legal power. The agency created by an agreement can be a form of implied authority, for example. B if a person gives their credit card to a close relative, the cardholder may be asked to pay for the parent`s purchases with their credit card. No no. Under the Civil Code, there are no formalities to be completed by the contracting authority when appointing a representative. The mediation relationship can be established either by a written contract or by an oral agreement.
