Consultancy agreement

This is a simple consultancy agreement.

The agreement is short, but does include provisions covering services, deliverables, licensing, charges and subcontracting (amongst other things). It is not particularly biased towards the consultant or the client, although it can be easily adapted to favour one party or the other.

If you are looking for a consultancy document that provides for the transfer of copyright, or otherwise need something more sophisticated, you should consider the standard consultancy agreement on Website Contracts.

*Although you are welcome to use this template consultancy agreement without paying a licence fee, you should buy a licence on Website Contracts if you want to remove the credit / attribution text from the agreement.

Comments

It is the first time that I will sign a consultancy contract for the food and beverage industry. Will this document be suitable?

This is a generic consultancy agreement, and hasn’t been designed with any issues that are specific to this industry in mind.  Templates are tools, and always need to be adapted to take account of the particular circumstances in which they are used.
