What Should be Included in a Consultancy Agreement?


A Consultancy Agreement will be required to set out the details of your arrangement with any external professional doing work for your company. Typically, these contracts will cover matters such as:

    Payment terms
    Insurance and liability
    Consultant substitution
    Intellectual property
    Data protection and confidentiality
    Ending the Agreement

It is crucial to have a Consultancy Agreement in place as consultants are not treated in the same way as your employees. They will not be protected under employment law and will, for example, be responsible for paying their own taxes, for example. The agreement should indicate that the consultant is an independent contractor employed to carry out services.

Consultancy Agreement Disputes

Disputes can occur between your business and a consultant you employ, for example, if advice given by the consultant causes harm to your business. To deal efficiently with external business disputes like this, it is sensible to get legal advice as early as possible.
