In the field of service provision, it is important to document everything correctly. This is especially true for the interaction between business entities – for example, two companies or a public organization and an individual entrepreneur. In this case, it is very important to properly take care of all documentary aspects so that gaps at the level of recording agreements do not work against you later. If you are interested in this opportunity, it is offered by the lawyers of the Prikhodko&Partners law office. We specialize in many issues that are relevant to clients, including service agreements. We invite you to learn in more detail about what the content of this document should be.
Essential terms of the contract: what does this include?
Without complying with essential conditions, the second party will be able to challenge the legal force of the contract in court. That is why it is extremely important that they are followed. The contents of the document must indicate:
- What exactly is the service provided? Since the contract itself is called “on the provision of services,” such information is central to it.
- Terms of service provision. This determines how long the relevant work will take and within what time it should be completed.
- Payment. The price of services is also one of the key terms of the contract, so it must be clearly indicated.
- Confirmation of provision of services. This condition protects both parties by specifying what the result is and how it is documented. We’ll talk about the last aspect in more detail later.
In the meantime, it’s worth dwelling on some of the features of what the concept of service includes. First of all, it is about the process, not the result. That is why the contract must clearly state what exactly the contractor must do. Likewise, it is good when the document contains information about the criteria for the quality of a service or shortcomings in its provision.
Why is the deed an important document?
Above we talked about confirming that the service was provided. For this purpose, there is such a document as an act of services provided. At the same time, when signing it, various complications may arise – both for one and for the other party. For example, imagine a situation where the contractor provided poor-quality services and motivates the customer to sign the document as soon as possible. Or, conversely, the services are provided in a pre-agreed format, and the customer wants to perform an additional volume of services that were not initially provided. In this case, there is also blackmail on the part of one party.
In order not to become a hostage to such a situation, you should use the help of qualified lawyers who understand such legal relations. This will help you defend yourself and not take actions that could lead to negative consequences in the future.
How can we be useful?
Sometimes people make a typical mistake when, when concluding an agreement, they take ready-made templates as a basis. It’s good if business relationships with counterparties develop in a certain way. But it often happens that you have to defend your legal rights and interests in court. This is the stark reality of the practice of a significant number of business relationships. And then the question arises of how well the contract is drawn up and what to build on when building your behavior strategy.
To protect yourself from such situations, you should understand: the really high-quality contracts are those that are concluded taking into account your needs and interests in business. Therefore, it makes sense to contact experienced lawyers and resolve the issue properly. In this context, we offer 2 service options:
Development of a turnkey contract text. This is the optimal solution for those who are truly committed to the reliability of documents regulating business relations with counterparties. In the future, you will be able to develop similar versions of contracts based on such a template, which is not just taken from open sources, but developed specifically for you. This will protect you from negative scenarios for the development of business relationships and insecurity in them.
Proofreading and adjustment of an existing contract. This service is especially relevant when the company’s team already has a lawyer who has drawn up an acceptable text of the document, but is afraid that he might have missed some significant detail. This approach does not at all indicate a lack of professionalism, but on the contrary indicates systemic thinking and an understanding of the need for feedback from another impartial professional.
In both cases, the specialists of the law firm “Prikhodko&Partners” will help you achieve a result where the drawn up agreement will meet the needs of your company and protect you from unpleasant surprises in business cooperation.
