If the annex is not included in the text of the agreement, it may end up losing its legal value. Contractbook allows you to automatically add one or more attachments to your contract. In this way, the documents are cached digitally and there is no room for doubt as to the status of the appendix. Appendices are often used for practical reasons; z.B. in big contracts. Often there are also more technical reasons – price lists, licensing conditions, calendars, promotional materials and product descriptions. They are therefore often used in complex and technical agreements. B, for example, in large buy-and-sell contracts. An appendix should not be confused with a complementary agreement. These are used to modify or extend the terms in an agreement already concluded. An appendix to a contract is one or more documents that constitute an immediate extension of a contract.
Sometimes a contract can be kept very short, for example. B if it is designed according to a framework contract or if it is a copy of a previous contract. An appendix has no fixed meaning in contract law, only when it has been entered and incorporated into the main agreement to which it relates. In the last 20 years in which I have established contracts (such as IT contracts and ALS agreements), many annexes have been called either « annex, » « annex » or « schedule. » In a recent treaty negotiation, the importance of these annexes was particularly important to the elements of the agreement and those that are not. The correct use of language in a treaty is very important. However, there are other purposes for an appendix. They are sometimes used to add some form of documentation to the agreement process. At other times, it may indicate how to interpret the agreement. The mere fact that an annex was a separate document prior to the signing of the agreement does not mean that it will necessarily always have that status in the future, i.e. its legal value may be « frozen » at the time the contract is signed as an annex (usually signed).
Changes to the original document (a copy of which has been attached) generally do not alter the agreement itself, unless it is clearly intentional. The most important aspect of an annex is that it is anchored in the text, which means that it is described in the text of the treaty. This can be done by an ancillary list. First, it is necessary to include the annex in the agreement and to ensure that the annex does not disappear from the agreement. In this way, there can be no doubt as to the knowledge of the document at the time of the conclusion of the contract. For Andrew Weeks (one of our simple language gurus), we can (and should) consider this from a simple and practical level of language. The appendix, schedule or calendar is usually the fact that they are all « annexs. »
