A contract is a legally enforceable agreement that creates, defines, and governs mutual rights and obligations among its parties. A contract typically involves the transfer of goods, services, money, or a promise to transfer any of those at a future date. By creating a contract, you can explicitly define the working conditions with your client, providing clear terms to protect you from any problems that can happen at any moment during your working relationship. Contracts are crucial for freelancers to protect themselves and their business from things like scope creep, disputes, or even worse, a lawsuit.
Yes, contracts created with Indy include an e-signature block. Signatures can be added easily. Indy’s e-signatures make it a breeze to get the sign offs you need from clients, so that you can lock in the agreement quicker and get to work.
Managing your contracts online is really useful for a few reasons:
Indy provides three professional contract templates to cover the most important aspects of your business:
The Contractor project agreement helps you define the terms of service between you and another party. Whether you’re a photographer or a writer or any profession that requires a contract within a set project scope, you can customize it to fit your needs.
The Non-disclosure agreement (NDA) establishes a confidential relationship to protect intellectual property from being stolen or shared with competitors or other parties.
The Subcontractor agreement solidifies a business arrangement between you and a subcontractor you hire. Or, if you’re the subcontractor, between you and the primary contractor. It includes payment terms.
All of our contracts are legally-vetted. Indy’s got you covered at every level of your business, whether you’re just starting out or looking to scale up.
Indy Contracts lets you effortlessly customize a project agreement to fit your profession. Just open up a new Contractor Project Agreement and choose your role on the left side of the document. And voilà! The agreement will automatically update to reflect your profession throughout the entire contract in seconds. Now all that’s left to do is add your client’s name, fill in the details about your business, and you’re ready to go!
Absolutely! During the review stage, just click the Customize Contract button for Indy’s customization to kick in. This allows you to add or delete anything to the agreement terms so that all of your contracts fully represent your business in the ways that you want. And with our visual customization tool, you can choose from a list of fonts so that even your contracts can fit your branding. Then when you’re finished, you can enable e-signatures or upload your own to ensure that your unique signature makes it into each of your business contracts.
