When Has a Breach of Contract Occurred?
A business contract is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties. A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill its obligations laid out in that contract. Contracts can either be written or oral/verbal, though achieving a successful resolution in an oral breach of contract can be more difficult than with a written contract because it becomes an argument of ‘he said she said.’ Furthermore, most business contracts require a written contract due to the size and scope of the agreement. Examples of business breach of contract include:
- Failure to deliver services
- Late payment
- Failure to pay in full
- Failure to perform or complete a job
- Late delivery
- Failure to deliver
- Interference with the other party’s ability to meet their obligations
- Breach of employment contract
Types of Breach of Contract
- Minor breach—A minor breach occurs when one party performs their obligation, but does so late. For example, a minor breach has occurred if one party delivers goods or services a week later than promised.
- Material breach—A material breach occurs when one party delivers a good or service other than what was promised in the contract.
- Actual breach—An actual breach of contract occurs when one party refuses to perform their obligations laid out in the contract.
- Anticipatory breach—An anticipatory breach occurs when one party says that it will not perform its obligations in advance of the actual date of delivery/services.

Business contracts must be valid in order to be upheld. This is one of the main points of contention regarding breach of contract disputes; one party attests that the other breached the contract, while the other claims that the contract was not valid in the first place. Other reasons a party may be able to breach the contract without being penalized include claims that the contract was fraudulent or that there was a misrepresentation of material facts.
