Do I need a contract for my clients?
Heck yes. If you run your service business without a contract – you’re exposed. If something goes wrong, you have no fallback. Is that how you want to do business?
A contract protects both you and your clients.
It’s not about big legal words and getting the upper hand. It’s relationship insurance. A legally binding contract does the boring legal leg work, manages expectations, and provides certainty. That way, you can focus on what you want to achieve in your business.
Make sure your contract does the hard work for you.
How much should I charge?
It’s up to you to set your pricing and negotiate fees with the client you work for.
For a specific project, the client might like to have the cost certainty of a fixed fee, but it’s very common for service providers to charge out at an hourly rate or daily rate for regular work.
Some factors that can influence how much you charge include:
- the length of the project
- the skills required to do the job
- project scope or size
Our Service Agreement allows you to subcontract one or more aspects of the services you provide to the client but requires you to remain the head contractor. This means that you will remain responsible for the subcontractor’s services.
Payment Terms & Deposit
You might decide to require a deposit from clients before you begin work. You can specify the deposit amount as a dollar figure or a percentage of the total estimated fees.
You are also free to set your own payment terms in your contract. This is a commercial decision and the payment terms you offer to clients may depend on a number of factors:
- your industry
- project size
- size of the client
- new vs existing client
Can I negotiate the key terms of the Service Agreement?
Before you kick off your project, you should discuss the commercial terms with your client and negotiate a position that both parties are happy with.
Don’t forget to ensure that the terms you have agreed to are reflected in the final contract that both parties sign.
I purchased a Service Agreement online, but quickly realised I had selected the wrong template. I contacted Adrian via the phone, who immediately helped, explaining that I needed the Independent Contractor Agreement instead. Within a minute or two of the call, I received the Independent Contractor Agreement from Adrian, via email. It was exactly what we needed. Thank you
