Before you enter into transactions involving the sale of goods, make sure you know the basics about the Uniform Commercial Code (the “UCC”). The UCC is a comprehensive set of rules governing the sale of goods and other commercial transactions. It has been adopted in some form in every state. You’ll want to be familiar with the general rules covered by the UCC so that you can avoid making common business transaction mistakes.
