Frequently asked questions
A service contract is a document that engages two parties, usually a service provider and its customer, to render a service against remuneration. The work and its monetary value are determined as well as the conditions and obligations resulting therefrom.
The service contract for self-employed drafting product can be used for any physical or moral entity (less than 3 employees). The contractor may be an accountant, programmer, photographer, personal trainer, architect, etc. Your service contract will be written according to your specialty and the standards of your sector of activity.
A service contract will determine in advance which services you will perform and when the service will be considered performed. This not only helps protect you if a customer refuses to pay, but also helps to set expectations. A contract also creates a sense of certainty and a guarantee that the customer retains your services to perform a task as discussed, thereby minimizing the risk of last-minute cancellation.
In order to minimize costs, many contractors purchase a service contract template that they use with their customers. The law that regulates contracts is very complex, especially for certain industries, and a general model can open you to liability in the event of a dispute with your client. Neolegal ensures that your service contract meets your industry standards by conducting research and due diligence. Your neolegal lawyer will also discuss each clause included in the contract so that your document is specifically designed for the needs of your business.

Yes! After the consultation with your lawyer and the drafting of your service contract, you will receive your personalized document with the clauses specific to your company. You will then be able to change the amount requested for your services or the name of the other party (your client). However, it is always suggested to consult a lawyer to ensure that all clauses are applicable and that the law in force has not changed since the drafting of the contract.
No. You can not use a service contract to retain the service of a contractor or fixed-term employee since in these cases you are the client and they provide the service. To retain the services of a consultant or temporary employee, visit our employment contract section for more information.
