IS THERE A LEGAL VIEW ON WHEN GOODS DELIVERED FROM ONE BUSINESS

Customer Question

IS THERE A LEGAL VIEW ON WHEN GOODS DELIVERED FROM ONE BUSINESS TO ANOTHER ARE DEEMED AS RECEIVED ? WE DELIVERED SOME GOODS AND WERE ADVISED 2 MONTHS LATER THAT THERE WERE SHORTAGES. OUR DELIVERY NOTES WERE LACKING A FIRM STATEMENT BUT I WONDERED WHAT THE LEGAL STANDPOINT ON THIS MIGHT BE.

Hello,
Unless your terms and conditions state that your customer must have raised any issues about deliveries and shortfall within a specified time, then it would depend on custom and practice in previous dealings.
It would be for the customer to show evidence that there was indeed a shortfall, and raising a query 2 months after delivery is a long delay which raises doubts about the veracity of their claim, unless they are able to show why it took so long for them to raise a query.
May I help further?
