Sale of Goods. Consumer or Business purchaser?? watch

    • Thread Starter

    jack buys 500 boxes of alcohol from Costco for 20 quid a box. He buys these for the bar at his hotel Towers Hotel which operates under the business name AceHospitality Ltd. This is the first time he has ever made such a purchase as his hotel has just been opened.

    In this scenario, would Jack be considered a business purchaser? I believe he is a business purchaser as he is acting in the course of business and the act is not merely incidental to its main business.
    However i came across the case of R & B Customs in which it stated a degree of regularity in the act is required for it to be classed as being performed in the usual course of business.

    Can i get some help please as the remedies depend upon whether the fictional jack would be a consumer or business purchaser. thanks

    It doesn't matter. It was in the course of business as it was integral to the operation of the business, regardless of the regularity.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
