Why is it important to have a Sub-Contractor Agreement?
It’s wise to have a Sub-Contractor Agreement in place with each sub-contractor your business engages.
This sets clear expectations about the services to be provided, fees and payment, confidentiality, IP ownership and termination processes.

An independent contractor can either be an individual person or a company that works directly with the client (‘principal’) to provide goods or perform a service in accordance with a contract. Whereas a sub-contractor is generally engaged by an independent contractor to help fulfil a contract they have with the principal.
As such, work performed by the sub-contractor is generally specialised to one specific part of the work that the independent contractor is engaged to complete. Read more here.
Engaging sub-contractors is a good way to expand your goods and/or services to your customers — but in turn your reputation is also at stake. To help protect your business, it is crucial to have a Sub-Contractor Agreement in place.
Sub-Contractor Agreements outline the scope of work to be performed by both parties, and ensures they are clear on their roles, responsibilities and liability. Put simply, it sets out the key terms of their working relationship. Read more here.
A Sub-Contractor Agreement should cover a broad range of areas, including but not limited to: specifying obligations; specifying payment details; highlighting the required performance of the subcontractor; termination of the agreement; and dispute resolution.
As such, it is important to have a lawyer review and/or draft your Sub-Contractor Agreement to maintain a smooth commercial relationship moving forward.
