Frequently Asked Questions

This general Consultancy Agreement allows you to insert all of the commercial features such as scope, milestones, timeframes, fees and payment in the “Details” section on the first page.

The important legal terms and conditions that follow cover essential key concepts for your consultancy business including:

  • A right to be paid within a certain timeframe and the right to stop work and charge interest if you are not paid
  • The right to revise your fee estimate if the scope of the arrangement changes
  • That you retain any background intellectual property that you bring to the arrangement. Any intellectual property that you develop will transfer to the client, however, only upon payment
  • A right to end the relationship with the client without having a reason. You will need to specify how many days notice you need to give them
  • Liability
  • A right for both parties to have any confidential information protected from misuse

This Consultancy Agreement has been created for consultants to engage their clients.

Suitable for HR Consultants, Finance Consultants, Marketing Consultants, IT Consultants, and more!

This Agreement is designed to be used by the consultancy business. If you are looking to engage a consultant then please do not use this Agreement as the terms will not be favourable to you. Cherrypicka offers an Independent Contractor Agreement which may be suitable in this situation.

This Agreement has been drafted so that the Consultant transfers developed intellectual property to the client upon payment for the services. You do not transfer ownership of your background intellectual property. Please obtain custom legal advice if this doesn’t sound like what you’ve agreed.

A Consultancy Agreement may also be referred to as a Business Consulting Agreement, Consulting Contract, Consulting Services Agreement, or an Independent Contractor Agreement.
