Hot on the heels of the Domino's ACCC fines, the ACCC has now instituted proceedings against Ultra Tune.
In a strange case of deja vu these proceedings also include a failure to comply with the Franchising Code of Conduct Marketing Fund disclosure rules.
In addition to that the ACCC is alleging, amongst other things, Ultra Tune failed to act in good faith (also a requirement under the Code).
It will be beneficial to the franchising world to see some case law around the Code's requirements to act in good faith.
The full ACCC release is MR 73/17.
