Consultancy Agreements for Employers

Consultancy agreements are common where a business appoints a self-employed individual or a service company to undertake a particular project, activity, service or task for the business.

If a consultancy arrangement is being entered into, it is important for both the consultant and the business to ensure that an appropriately worded agreement is put in place and that the agreement accurately reflects the relationship between the parties.

Consultancy agreements set out start and end dates, payment details, responsibilities, deadlines, what happens in case of illness, the “ownership” of the client and so on. A properly drafted consultancy agreement can help the parties to avoid disagreements, can make it far more likely that work is done on time and to the correct standard and can protect against a consultant taking a client from the business.

Our Employment team regularly prepares and advises upon consultancy agreements.
