Sample Template Electronic Signature Clause


This template provides a sample electronic signature clause. This clause may be inserted into a contract where the parties agree that a contract can be executed electronically (as well as or instead of by manuscript). An electronic signature will not be denied legal effect nor admissibility as evidence in legal proceedings just because it is electronic, however, this clause aims to boost the parties’ confidence that their e-signatures are binding.

As e-commerce has become increasingly common in business (and consumer) contracts, the desire of parties to execute contracts electronically has also increased.

This template should be read in conjunction with our guidance note on electronic signatures, which can be accessed here and the Final Report published by the expert Industry Working Group on electronic execution of documents which can be accessed here.

Note that this clause should only be used in the context of a corporate or commercial simple contract. It is not applicable to deeds or property related documents.
