Anyone planning to do a deal where they will pay or earn commission can benefit from this commission agreement.
What is this Commission Agreement for?
This is a general purpose commission agreement for use by an individual or company who, in return for a commission, introduces business to a third party.
This is not a formal agency agreement. Instead it is short and simple. It is useful for a ‘one-off’ arrangement between someone who has good contacts in a particular area and a company wishing to sell into that area.
What are the main issues for someone preparing a Commission Agreement?
First identify what the commission is for. What products or services have to be sold for the commission to be paid. And what support does the commission agent get?
And, if it only applies to sales made in a particular country or area, identify the territory.
Set out how the commission is calculated and when it will be paid. If it is a percentage of the price of goods, is that the price excluding VAT and other costs, such as shipping costs?
How long will the commission agreement last? And will commission be paid on a sale made after it ends to a customer introduced before the agreement ended?
For an agreement between companies introducing business to each other, see our Introduction & Commission Agreement.
