Who can use this Services Agreement?
Any company or organisation that wants to engage another business, freelancer or sole trader to provide services can use this services agreement template.
What is this Services Agreement for?
The services agreement contains: details of services being provided, duration, fees and duties of both the client and the service provider. It is written from the company’s point of view.
What are the main issues?
You should specify the scope of services and the fees, plus the payment terms are always important.
General duties of the service provider, including duties of skill and care should be set out.
Also state the length of the agreement , perhaps with scope for this to be extended or, perhaps, terminated early.
Variations: either party might proposed changes to the work and a clause to deal with this, including getting agreement on pricing and other aspects of the change, is useful.
Termination or suspension should always be covered: without a termination clause, it can be difficult to bring a contract to an end.
