What is a Fee Agreement?
With the Fee Agreement you can establish when the service(s) will begin, what they are exactly, how much the payment will be and how it will be made (ie. lump sum, installment etc), the terms of the agreement's termination, confidentiality, and whether or not the provider of services will guarantee the quality of work. A Fee Agreement helps avoid misunderstandings or disputes prior to work, so that each party is clear on what service(s) will be provided and how the service provider will be remunerated.
When to use a Fee Agreement:
- You've found the right person or company to provide services to your business, and you want to establish the terms of the service and payment.
- You have been contracted to provide services to a client, and you want to establish the terms of the service and payment.
