If you’re acting as a consultant to a client, we can draft a consultancy agreement that comprehensively sets out your terms and effectively safeguards your position.

If you’re being asked to enter into an agreement we can advise you on the meaning of the terms so that you are clear on what you are agreeing to.

  • A consultancy agreement sets out the specific terms of your working relationship with a client, and distinguishes you as a consultant rather than an employee.
  • It’s vital that your agreement is tailored specifically to you, and covers all aspects to provide you with complete protection.
  • You can rely on our extensive experience of drafting consultancy agreements, to draft an agreement that matches your exact requirements and gives you peace of mind.

What is a consultancy agreement?

A consultancy agreement is an agreement between a consultant (you) and a client (which can be a business or individual). The consultancy agreement regulates all aspects of the relationship, such as hours, pay and the employment status. In many ways, a consultancy agreement is similar to an employment contract; however the difference between a consultant and an employee is very different legally.

Why you need a consultancy agreement

It is particularly important for many reasons, including those relating to tax, that your employment relationship is accurately recorded as a consultancy agreement.
