Kitset home business director pleads guilty to breaching Fair Trading Act

Emma Gestro the director of now defunct Get Design and Sales Limited (Get Design) has pleaded guilty to three charges laid by The Commerce Commission for breaching the Fair Trading Act when taking payment for goods.

The Commission alleged Emma Gestro breached the law by demanding or accepting payment for small kitset buildings sold by her company Get Design, when she did not have reasonable grounds to believe that delivery could occur within the specified contractual period, or within a reasonable time.

The charges arose from Ms Gestro’s conduct with three customers between July 2016 and July 2017 when the company was placed in liquidation.
