Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s)
German term or phrase: zum Jahresende
Der Vertrag kann von jeder Vertragspartei mit einer Frist von 1 Monat jeweils zum Jahresende gekündigt werden.

Sorry to ask such an easy question, but I've never quite known what this means. Does it just mean a period of one month may be given by either side? Does it mean the contract may only be terminated at the end of a year?

agree  Steffen Walter: ... at the end of each year, giving one month's notice.

  -> Danke Steffen. Das ist m. E. die äquivalente Formulierung, die außerdem offen lässt, ob hier in Kalender- oder Vertragsjahren gerechnet wird.

  -> Thx Jane

agree  Armorel Young: yes, but just "at the end of the year" or possibly "at the end of any year" - not "each year" because you can only do it once, not repeatedly year after year (and it doesn't say jedes Jahr in German)

  -> THX, it says "jeweils", one year follows the other with some degree of predictable conformity, and a termination is a termination is a ... ;-)
