How to Create a Business Service Contract

A business services contract is essential to protect both the customer and service provider. It's important to define the rights and duties of each party in a written service agreement in order to avoid disputes and future litigation. It doesn't matter if you have a small business in need of an independent contractor or a large company with a need for goods, oral contracts should be avoided. Whether you need service contracts for a long-term or short-term project, a written agreement is vital to make the terms understood and minimize disagreements. Written contracts are vital when providing goods or general services to customers. The following terms should be included in any contract for business services:


  • Identification of the parties to the business contract- Names, addresses, and phones numbers can be included.

  • A description of the business service to be performed - The location where the services will be performed, start and finish date, or the duration of the agreement should be set forth. Any work materials to be provided should be included.

  • Payment - Payment terms should be described, such as whether a fixed fee or hourly rate will be charged, the time payment is due, and the forms of payment.

  • The signature of the parties - The signatures should be at the end of the document and any changes made after signing should be separately signed. A manager will often sign as an authorized agent of a business.


There are many other terms that can be included in a business service agreement. For example, if employment deals with day care, child care, electrical work, taxi service, or home repair, a clause dealing with licensing and insurance may be included.

Responsibility for work permits may be covered in a landscaping or home repair agreement. A contract for legal services may contain an arbitration or mediation clause. Employment in internet or web design may include maintenance agreements. Warranties, nondisclosure, and noncompetition clauses are often appropriate. The needs will vary by the types of services and nature of employment. US Legal Forms offers affordable, top quality contracts for the following types of business services, plus many more:
