A-Suite Terms and Conditions

Welcome to the Accelerate Suite (A-Suite). We have created the A-Suite to help lead you through the legal considerations and formalise the documentation required to successfully establish your company.


By downloading, accessing or using the A-Suite, you agree to these terms and conditions of use (Terms of Use). The Terms of Use include our terms, our legal disclaimer, our privacy policy, any other terms or conditions on this website and any other terms and conditions that we provide to you from time to time.

We may change these Terms of Use for any reason, at any time and without telling you. By continuing to use the A-Suite, you accept the amended Terms of Use. A copy of the most current Terms of Use is displayed on this website and will be replaced with the most recent version if and when they are amended. These Terms of Use are in no way limited or altered by any other terms or conditions on this website.

The A-Suite is not legal advice

The A-Suite (which includes guidance notes, other publications, or other information associated with the A-Suite) is intended only to provide you with an overview of key information and a framework of legal documentation to assist you in establishing your company. The A-Suite is not intended to be comprehensive and it does not constitute and must not be relied on as legal advice. We attempt to ensure that the A-Suite is current as at the date it is made available on the website, but the law or other circumstances may have changed since this time and we do not guarantee the currency of the A-Suite.

We recommend that you seek specific legal or other professional advice before acting or relying on any part of the A-Suite. We are not responsible for any action taken or not taken in reliance on the A-Suite.

We can provide you with specific legal advice tailored to your circumstances if requested by you and subject to additional terms of engagement.

Spam

Severability

Any provision of these Terms of Use that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction is ineffective in that jurisdiction to the extent of the prohibition or unenforceability. That does not invalidate the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use and it does not affect the validity or enforceability of that provision in any other jurisdiction.
