Without an Accounting Agreement, you and your client might experience one or more of these repercussions: difficulty getting paid, unclear timelines, unmet standards of quality, unexpected changes, and, not to mention, almost no ability to make demands when problems arise.
Specifics to cover are:
As you probably expect from an agreement like this, your Accounting Contract template will also contain the typical language regarding the non-employer relationship between the accountant and client, the protection of proprietary information, the method(s) of dispute resolution, and liability for losses. As you make your agreement, you'll also be able to decide which state's jurisdiction it falls under. You can also define any services you'd like to exclude from the contract.

If you opt to do it by yourself, seeking out a lawyer to give feedback on your agreement can be time-intensive and relatively costly.
