It doesn’t matter if you are freelance, full time, weekend hustling, or doing one off services for people there is one legal document that will save you time, money, headaches, and heartaches.
A BASIC SERVICE AGREEMENT
A service agreement will protect you from non-paying clients, headache clients, and most important legally cover your butt for the unforeseen.
The contract doesn’t have to be fancy, it doesn’t have to be written in lawyer talk but it should have the following information:
- What the customer receives
- What the customer does NOT receive or what will cost them extra
- When the service will be provided or completed
- What you need from the customer and when in order to do your job
- What the refund, return, cancellation, or late fee policies are
But here’s the thing…you can only answer these questions and get in position to protect yourself if you have business clarity.
Business clarity is when you are clear on what you are providing, to who, and the truly value of the time and resources it takes to provide your product or service. Almost every legal issue in owning a business comes from non-payment, dissatisfied customers, or confusion between what was agreed and what was done.
- Can you clearly describe your ideal person or company you would work with?
- Can you clearly describe who you would turn down business from?
- Can you clearly break down why you charge what you do?
