General terms for engagement

For a commercial contract to be legally enforceable, the principles of contract law require that an offer be made and accepted, and contain sufficient detail to make it clear what is being offered and on what terms. A well-drafted contract is an important risk management device for each of the contracting parties. Providing a written description of the services you’re engaged to perform, the results you’ll achieve, how much and on what terms you’ll be paid, the extent of your liability and when and how the contract will end, forms a legal contract to fall back on if either party does not hold up their end of the deal.

We will prepare and submit an offer based on a client brief under the STANDARD TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT FOR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND CONSULTANTS

No work shall be carried out prior to receipt of a signed agreement.
