Who can use this?

Independent Contractor Agreement V. Client Services Agreement

Client Services Agreement

If you (or your company) are engaged to provide services to another person or company FOR THEM (let’s call them Company X) as a 1099 or non-employee, then you will need a Client Services agreement. You will still be an independent Contractor under the law, but you can define your services to your Client who is Company X. This will protect YOUR company and your status when you do work FOR THEM.

Independent Contractor Agreement

If you are engaging someone to do work FOR YOU as a contractor such as a web designer or accountant – then use the Independent Contractor agreement. This will protect YOUR company and your status when they do work FOR YOU and you pay THEM.

Client Services Agreement

This Client Services Agreement is to engage a client for you, individually or your business, where you provide services for the client. If you engage someone else to be your Independent Contractor – use the Independent Contractor Agreement instead.
