    Good day BAF,

    What is authoritative clause if a client has terms in their purchase order & you have terms in your sales estimate?
    I.e say that you both have a clause on deposits and they conflict & you continued with the works without being aware of the conflict at the time.

    A lot would depend on the specific jurisdiction and the particular circumstances of the individual transaction. However, if the "purchase order" was agreed by both parties after the sales estimate had been sent, I'd expect that it may have greater significance in terms of forming part of a contract between both parties.
