This agreement applies to any work I do for you.
Brief and fees
We agree in writing:
- what you want me to do
- your deadline
- how much you will pay. This will be an hourly, daily or flat-rate fee.
I give you the finished work on or before the deadline and you pay me. Simple 🙂
If I make a mistake, I correct it in my own time and at no cost to you.
We may need to agree a new fee, deadline or both if:
- early in the job, I realise we underestimated the work needed
- you add to the job while I’m working on it.
Lengthy projects can be split into stages and I will invoice at the end of each stage.
Meetings take time and should be valuable, so I will include them when working out my fee.
You’ll pay my invoice within 30 days, unless we’ve agreed a different date (that’s according to The Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 (amended 2002 and 2013).
I accept payment by bank transfer and credit card.
I am self-employed. You don’t have to worry about my income tax and National Insurance and I won’t claim benefits granted to your employees.
I manage my workplace, time, equipment and cups of coffee.
I’m not VAT registered.
You own the copyright of any content I create for you, unless we agree otherwise.
I keep the nature and content of all my work confidential. I won’t share it without your written permission.
The Data Protection Act 1998 lets us keep ‘necessary information’ (such as contact details) about each other. You can check that I’ve got relevant, correct and up-to-date records about you, and I can check what you’ve got about me.
If you or I repeatedly ignore part or all of this agreement, the other one can end the contract.
You don’t have to offer me work and I don’t have to accept work you offer.
We both agree to follow the rulings of the courts in England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. This agreement is subject to the laws of these countries.
