What Services are Covered by the ACL?

Services are widely defined in Section 2 of the ACL.

They include most things normally thought of as services such as contracts for work (but not employment).

They also include professional work, provision of recreational and amusement facilities, a contract between a banker and customer and a contract for the lending of money.

Section 63 sets out the two types of services which the ACL does not apply to.

The first is the transport or storage of goods for a person carrying on a business, trade or profession.

The second is a contract of insurance.
