Having the right terms and conditions in place prior to starting a service for a client can prevent problems arising later on down the line.

Most clients will start a business relationship with the best of intentions, but we recognise that things can go wrong. The project may take a different direction or the market may change. Should this happen, you need to be confident that the relationship between you and the client is set out clearly in a contract.

Both parties can be protected under a contract; the scope of the service and the expectations should be clearly defined and agreed upon. A contract should also define how and when you get paid and what you must do to get paid on time. As you can probably guess, this is one of the most disputed parts of a contract, so it’s essential that it is drafted clearly from the start!

You might be thinking…

  • I don’t want my terms to be overcomplicated
  • I’m not sure I need any terms of business
  • I can download a template

We understand your concerns, which is why;

  • We’ll keep the language simple but appropriate for how you and your customers/clients do business. We’ll make sure the tone of voice, content and format all match the way you work and deliver the right first impression to your new and existing customers/clients.
  • Doing business on a handshake without a contract is as good as crossing your fingers. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But when it doesn’t, you’ll wish you had a contract.
  • Your terms need to be carefully considered as they will not only ensure you’re trading legally, but they’ll manage the expectations of your client, the scope, the liability, the payment and much more. Templates may work for very straightforward arrangements, but a one size approach rarely fits all!

Our approach is simple, well thought-out and effective;

1.

Scoping call

Simply book a call with us and one of our experts will talk you through our contract drafting service. We’ll need to build a good understanding of your business, your market and the way you would like to deal with your customers/clients. This will range from the tone of voice, the format, past challenges and other key legal points you’ll need to be aware of. Don’t worry if you’re not sure; it’s our job to talk you through your options.

2.

Proposal

We’ll set out our fixed fee and timescales for helping you prepare your terms of business. We like to keep this short and straight to the point so you can make a quick decision to instruct us.

3.

Preparing the draft

Once you’ve instructed us, we’ll go ahead and prepare the first draft of your terms of business, which will take into account the key points discussed during the scoping call.

4.

Taking you through the terms

Once our expert has finished the first draft, they’ll take you through the terms to make sure you’re happy and clear with all the contents, the tone of voice and the format of the agreement. From there, we can make further adjustments before sending you a final version ready to use.
