You can only terminate for any reason BEFORE the start of the supply date.
So if you have already started then no, you cant end.

If you have not started then yes you can end it

All the best. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ofcourse before you go just to confirm. It is legally not binding before the contract statt date is what you are saying. As they try to scared me off on the phone.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 3 months ago.

Yes its binding. But the contract says you can terminate for any reason before the commencement date.

Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok if there wont be a financial or legal consequence i can accept the other contract. Thanks a lot.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 3 months ago.

Correct.
