Hair & Beauty Salon Chair Rental Agreements

Popular in the hair and beauty industry, Hair & Beauty Salon Chair Rental Agreements allow beauty professionals to enjoy the benefits of working in a salon and independence without the inflexibility of being an employee of the salon.

A beauty professional – hairdresser, beauty therapist, or nail care technician – provides their services under these templates agreements as a freelance self-employed trader. In each case they contract personally with the salon for the right to operate their beauty business in the salon’s premises using a chair and other equipment made available to them by the salon.

There are two alternative versions of the agreement for each type of beauty professional.

Firstly, there is a version under which they independently provide their freelance services direct to their own clients. Secondly, there is a version where, in addition to providing services direct to their own clients, they can also provide their services (as a subcontractor to the salon) to any existing client of the salon that the salon refers to them on any occasion.

Where the freelancer deals with their own clients, they are paid direct by those clients, and where they deal with a salon client referred to them by the salon, the client pays the salon and the freelancer is then paid by the salon.

Where the professional does not contract personally with the salon in this way but, instead, they provide their freelance services through a personal service or other intermediary company (“PSC”), the PSC (not the individual professional) contracts with the salon. Types of agreement for use where a PSC is involved in that way can be found in the accompanying Hair & Beauty Salon Chair Rental Agreements (Company) .

Each of the templates below seek to minimise the risk that HMRC will regard the individual freelancer as an employee of the salon rather than as a self-employed sole trader. All of them take into account relevant legal and industry developments, including case law, employment law, IR35 tax rules, and VAT law.

As explained in the information page accompanying each form of contract, the use of any of these templates can only seek to reduce but cannot actually remove this risk. Professional advice should therefore be sought, and that advice needs to take account not only of the content of the proposed document but also all of the circumstances and arrangements relating to the work, the individual, and the salon.
