Excellent service, very prompt & cost effective
Its Sunday! Yet I received everything I needed immediately and had a question answered by return email.
Documents have very easy to follow instructions, the whole service was delightful to use and cost effective.
Thank you. Full recommendation from me.
I am employing a consultant to do some work on our website. I want to make it clear that we will own the intellectual property and he will keep our customer list confidential.
As a Writer, I need a simple agreement with my clients setting out my charges, payment terms, etc, for my consulting gigs.
I get hired to do occasional photo shoots. I work as an independent contractor and want a simple booking agreement that spells out my duties and ensures I get paid.
The template covers all the main provisions required for a comprehensive agreement with a consultant, and none of the unnecessary "legal-gumpf" you'll find in many other documents:
Plus, you'll get easy to follow tips and examples to help you confidently turn your template into a legal document, customised for your requirements.
State when payment is required. For example, it could be weekly, monthly or let's say 7 days after a job is completed and invoiced. Oh, and by the way, are you paying in cash or crypto?
You can add to or vary the standard Agreement Terms with your own special conditions or changes to the agreement.
You can include the details of the Service Provider, either a company or an individual, and also the name(s) of the Individual Service Provider who will actually do the work.
Specify the services, when and where they will be provided and how much they will cost.
This consulting agreement states that the Service Provider assigns intellectual property to the Service Recipient. This means if you hire someone, you will own the rights in the material they develop for you.
The contract clarifies that the Service Provider is an independent contractor (not an employee) and therefore responsible for paying all taxes, superannuation and workers’ compensation.
A Consulting Agreement (or Independent Contractor Agreement) is a legal contract that sets out the terms on which someone is engaged to perform work independently rather than as an employee.
A consultant or independent contractor is not entitled to employee benefits such as annual leave and sick leave so businesses often find it simpler to engage them on this basis and pay a single fee to the contractor/consultant which covers all of the costs for their services.
If you are a contractor, you should put an Independent Contractor Agreement in black & white and ask your client to sign it. It will help you get paid and protect your rights.
Likewise, if you’re hiring a contractor/consultant rather an employee, make sure you get the contract in writing.
A written Consulting Agreement that's in black & white and clearly states the responsibilities of each party will minimise the risk of disputes. And, help you get on with business... avoid lawyers... and stay out of Court.
This Consulting Agreement Template can be used for most service providers such as web developers, writers, salespeople and other people who charge for their time.
It is fair for both parties. Therefore, you can make use of this document whether you are the consultant providing the services, or the business hiring a consultant.
You can use this Template to put a basic legally binding Consulting Agreement in place, instantly.

WE'VE WORKED WITH
I created this unique Consulting Agreement Template because I want to make professional legal protection accessible to every day Australians.
For years, I worked in big law firms on Collins Street in Melbourne and it struck me as unfair that only the rich could access our services.
Legal Aid only helps people with criminal matters and the Australian Government doesn't provide any support to small business for their commercial legal matters.
Partners in big law firms charge upwards of $650 per hour and even junior lawyers and smaller law firms aren't affordable for the average Australian.
I want you to have access to a high quality documents. The do-it-yourself (DIY) Legal Zebra Consulting Agreement is very affordable, even if you're just getting started with your business and on a budget.
You can engage my services if you need help preparing a more customised agreement for your consulting business.
We expect you'll be happy with Legal Zebra's Consulting Agreement. It's easy to use (clear and concise, without any legal mumbo jumbo) and will assist you to create a binding agreement, without any fuss.
