Consultant or contractor agreement (ET004)

When a client engages the services of a consultant or a contractor – whether a private individual, partnership or limited company – this document should be used to draw up the terms of the arrangement. While it includes clauses covering remuneration, obligations and notice it does not constitute a contract of employment. However, failure of either party to honour the terms of the agreement could lead to claims of breach of contract or negligence. The agreement also deals with the issue of copyright. Note that this document is not suitable for individuals working in the health and care industry or who would have contact with children or vulnerable adults. Many consultants and contractors today work through a limited company, rather than directly, and this agreement can accommodate such an arrangement. Where the consultant or contractor is an individual this document provides that he or she will be responsible for their own tax, USC and PRSI.
