About this document

For thousands of self employed people this document will be presented to a new client as “my contract”. For any business using self employed people it provides the essential starting point for the relationship

Although the agreement clothes the transaction with all the characteristics of self employment, simply using one of these contracts will not necessarily avoid the relationship of employer and employed. Both the Inland Revenue and any industrial tribunal will be entitled to look behind the agreement at the reality of the contract.

Some of the questions they might ask are:

  • Is this the contractors only work or does he work for others too?
  • Does the client control how the work is done?
  • Are the hours fixed by the client or can the contractor choose when he works?
  • Does the contractor work on the clients premises, using the client's equipment?
  • To what extent is the contractor at risk as a self employed person?
  • Is self employment normal for this kind of work?

I searched online for a suitable contract for service document and came across Net Newman. The document was exactly what I was looking for and was priced competitively so I decided to purchase. It arrived immediately and was so easy to adapt to my needs. The tips for updating it were invaluable and I liked the option of being able to get one of the Net Lawman legal experts to review it for a small additional fee (even though I was confident enough that I didn’t need this). Would strongly recommend Net Lawman to anyone looking for high quality legal contracts
