We order small jobs regularly from the contracting party by phone. No written contracts are made for the orders. The values of individual orders are below the limit value of EUR 9,000. Do we have to perform checks concerning contractor’s obligations?
The contractor has the obligation to check also for orally concluded contracts. If the parties enter into several successive contracts with short interruptions, the values of the contracts shall be added together to assess whether the limit value has been exceeded. The contractor has the obligation to check if the total value of successive contracts is at least EUR 9,000 (VAT 0%).
