What is a Virtual Assistant Client Agreement?

A Virtual Assistant Client Agreement is your MOST important legal document. If you only have one contract in your business, this is it!

It covers your terms of business, including scope, deliverables, payment terms and termination. Your clients will love our template because it includes protections for their intellectual property and confidential information as well.

Your Virtual Assistant Client Agreement should be tailored to each specific client, detailing the services you are providing to them. A well-written agreement will not only provide you with legal protection but also help manage your client’s expectations.

 

Do I need a contract?

Yes, absolutely! A contract protects both you and your clients.

You should always have a contract signed before starting a new virtual assistant job for a client.

Putting things in writing protects both parties and gives certainty.

Contracts are about more than wrapping your clients up in red tape and telling them what they can’t do. Think of your contract as relationship insurance: it does all the hard, boring work of keeping the relationship on rails so that you can focus on the fun part – the actual business.

  • Type of engagement and working hours  – the type of services you will provide and working hours
  • Scope  – the scope of your services

  • Promotion – allows you to use the client to promote your business
  • Confidentiality – both parties agree to keep confidential information private
  • Intellectual Property – this covers intellectual property rights for the works you create
  • Limitation of Liability – to protect you against claims for losses and damages

I’m just starting my Virtual Assistant business. Do I really need this?

Yes, you should have a contract for ALL client engagements.

You will appear more professional, and it will help protect both you and your clients.

 

If I subcontract some of my work to other Virtual Assistants, can I still use the Client Agreement?

Yes, you can! This Client 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 (meaning that you will remain responsible for the subcontractor’s services).

 

Is this template legally binding?

Absolutely!

All of our templates are written by qualified Australian lawyers who hold an Australian legal practicing certificate.

We are affiliated with a commercial law firm based in Sydney.

More Details

What do Scope and Deliverables mean?

Scope means the type of services you will provide (e.g. social media posts, call answering, document proofing etc.)

Deliverables mean any specific items or quantities or projects (e.g. 5 hours per week)

Can my client just type their name in the signature box, or do they have to print it off and sign it?

We recommend that you only send the contract to people in PDF format. Ask them to sign the contract and return the signed copy to you for your records. If they just typed their name, it wouldn’t be possible to prove they had signed the contract if a dispute arose later.

Can’t I just copy this from another website?

Don’t do this.

1. This is copyright infringement and is against the law.

2. You might accidentally copy terms and conditions from another country – if you end up in court for some reason, it might be on the other side of the world!

3. Our template has been drafted by an Australian lawyer to make sure it’s legally binding here in Australia.

Why should I invest in a quality Virtual Assistant Client Agreement template?

You’ve spent countless hours dedicated to learning how to attract the right clients.

Your heavy financial investments in your own personal growth are slowly but surely paying off.

You’re not going to let all that go to waste with a crappy contract, are you?

The booking process is the most fragile part of the selling process. Don’t let your future clients slip away with a shady contract pieced together like Frankenstein.

With this contract template, your clients will know you take your business seriously. You’ll stand out from your competition, but best of all, your clients will trust you right from the start.

Very Comprehensive and Easy to Use

Unfortunately I bought a cheaper template online before I bought this one and it was so bad. This one is easy to adjust and use while ensuring you retain the legality of the document. It's such a relief to know its been drafted by lawyers and is the real deal. Thanks for making it an easy process.
