The importance of Contracts

If you’re a contractor – including a VA – you need to have a contract! In a recent survey of Australian VAs, 31% never have a client sign a contract before work commences and nearly 12% only require it sometimes! Contracts are important – not just from a legal protection standpoint but because without one you miss out on one of the key tests for categorising yourself as a contractor rather than employee. Are you dicing with danger?

In this webinar, Ken Phillips, co-founder and Executive Director of Independent Contractors Australia will cover:

  • Understanding what a contract is from a practical commercial perspective, and
  • Reading, interpreting and evaluating contracts.

In an easy-to-follow way! He will also discuss why a contract is so vitally important and why you should have a client sign one every time!

The presentation will be based around the contract templates Ken has developed for ICA and which are available in the members-only area of the ICA site – participants might wish to consider joining ICA ($55/year) to access the templates.

(Please note this webinar will be half an hour later than our regular session at 1.30pm Australian eastern daylight saving time.)
