These Terms of Business are for professional consultants and freelance agents, and offer a standard set of terms and conditions for dealing with clients.
Designed as a template for use by a consultant when submitting a proposal to a client, these terms could be used by a wide range of consulting firms, from engineers to PR consultants.
There are 11 main clauses covering:
- scope of services
- fees and expenses (by reference to a separate quotation/contract)
- information and approval
- standard of care
- intellectual property
- liability (with alternative clauses)
- assignment and subcontracting
- law and jurisdiction
This document has recently been updated to include an Appointment Letter to clients and a Schedule detailing the scope of services, fees and expenses payable.
