Our Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle includes everything you need to make sure your VA business is legally protected:

- Independent Contractor Agreement
- Letter of Demand
What’s Included in the Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle?
1. Virtual Assistant Client Agreement
A Virtual Assistant Client Agreement is your most important legal document. It ensures that your client is crystal clear on your terms of business, including the scope of your engagement, deliverables, your payment terms and when each of you may terminate the contract.
Your clients will love our Virtual Assistant Client Agreement because it includes protections for their intellectual property and confidential information as well!
2. Independent Contractor Agreement
Need some help? Looking to outsource? No problem, with an Independent Contractor Agreement you can engage a contractor to help you deliver amazing service to your clients.
It helps to set the ground rules so that both parties can understand their obligations from the start. This contract contains all the essential ingredients, including services, payment, confidentiality, termination and limitation of liability, plus much more!
5. Letter of Demand
When your gentle payment reminders fall on deaf ears, it’s powerful to have a firm and professional Letter of Demand up your sleeve. Our Letter of Demand template will help to keep the cash in your business flowing.
Use our Letter of Demand template to formally request payment of an outstanding debt and provide a warning before commencing legal action. You might be able to recover your debts yourself without spending money on a lawyer or debt collector.
Are these templates legally binding?
All of our templates have been drafted by qualified Australian lawyers who hold an Australian legal practicing certificate.
We are affiliated with a commercial law firm based in Sydney.

Why You Need This
Clearly set out your terms for clients
A contract protects both you and your clients.
You should always have a contract signed before you start a new virtual assistant job for a client. Our template has been specifically drafted for Virtual Assistants and clearly sets out the legal relationship between you and your clients.
Our Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle will help you to avoid risk and limit your liability if something does go wrong.
Protect your business and assets
As the old saying goes, hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
You never know what will happen in the future, but it is vital that you have contracts in place to protect everything you have worked hard for.

Do I need a contract?
Yes, absolutely! A contract protects both you and your clients.
You should always have a contract signed before you start 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 you can focus on the fun part – the actual business.
I’m just starting my Virtual Assistant business, do I really need all these documents?
Yes, they are recommended.
We have designed our Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle to include all of the essential legal documents so you have proper legal protection.
Can’t I just copy my contracts 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 templates have been drafted by an Australian lawyer to make sure they’re legally binding here in Australia.
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).
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 means 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 came up later on.
Are these templates editable?
Yes, the templates come in Word format so you are free to make changes to the documents.
However, we do not recommend you make changes outside of the fields we have highlighted in the documents. The clauses and wording have been written by a lawyer for a good reason. Deleting clauses or modifying them can affect the legal protections contained in the documents.
What if the law changes?
If the law changes, we’ll email you with the changes and updates to add to your existing templates. So please ensure you keep us updated if your email address changes.
