Contracts & Business Insurance: Think you don’t need them?
Think again. The Small Business Administration offers 5 tips for buying commercial insurance Florida:
- Assess Your Risks
- Shop Around
- Consider a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP)
- Find a Reputable, Licensed Agent
- Assess Your Insurance Coverage on an Annual Basis (read more at http://www.sba.gov/content/buying-insurance)
- Names and addresses of the parties involved. For example, Kathy McCabe, The Hilltop Group, LLC, my address and Client Name, Client Company, Client address….
- Scope of the work: be clear and concise, and enter what you expect to be paid, as well as the terms of payment. Be sure to list what the client should expect in terms of expenses and fees other than your discussed rates and ways of payment, since you can be enlisted in a uk payroll process to accelerate payment. You can list the payment section with the Scope of Work, or in a separate section.
- Contract Length: Define if your contract is for the length of the project or ongoing until cancelled.
- Cancellation: Define your contract’s cancellation terms, be clear what constitutes a breach and cancellation.
- Work ownership: this is a big one for me. I have heard many people say that they paid for the work however the designer of their logo, image, website or whatever belongs to the designer. For me, if I’m paid to design something for you, the client, and you’ve paid me. The end result is yours. The work leading up to the final result are mine.
- Signatures! Make sure all parties sign the contract. It’s not worth anything if it’s not signed.
