The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has recently launched some online resources aimed at helping internet businesses meet their legal obligations and provide a better service to residents living in remote areas of the UK.

The new resources are available on the OFT's Distance Selling Hub. This provides guidance for retailers and business support organisations on regulations that affect buying and selling goods and services via the internet, phone, mail order, email, interactive TV or text.

The OFT is also keen to hear from businesses on any issues they may have with competition law compliance and to receive feedback on their latest compliance materials.
