Freelancer (Company) Agreements

Freelancer (Company) Agreements

Many professions are popular for freelancers. Using freelancers in business has many advantages, both for the professionals concerned and their clients.

Designed for use for a range of professions, these Freelance (Company) Agreements carefully regulate the relationship with the freelancer’s client. This subfolder contains templates under which the client contracts with the freelancer’s intermediary company (either a personal service company or some other intermediary company) rather than personally with the individual freelancer as a self-employed sole trader.

Each template aims to minimize the risk that IR35, agency worker or other legislation will have an adverse impact on the freelancer and/or his intermediary company. It is entered into by the intermediary company which is appointed by the client as a consultant.

As explained in the information page accompanying each form of contract, use of that (or any other) form cannot actually remove that risk, and so professional advice should therefore be sought. The advice will need to consider the content of the form to be used together with all of the circumstances and arrangements relating to the work, the freelancer, the client and the intermediary company.

Where the client instead contracts personally with the freelancer as a self-employed sole trader rather than with the freelancer’s intermediary company, you should instead use one of the forms in the Freelancer Agreements subfolder. Those forms provide for the client to appoint the individual freelancer personally instead.

These Freelance (Company) Agreements are part of the Business Documents Folder. Just £35.00 + VAT will provide you with 1 year's unlimited access to download all/any documents from the Business Folder.
