Hi Dan! You don't mention what trade you will be a freelancer for, but there are lots of trade associations that give advice to their members. If you are a member of an association through your trade try contacting them for advice as it may well be free! If you don't have any luck with them take a look at www.mindblank.co.uk as we can help with contracts, terms & conditions e.t.c. Best of luck!

what type of freelancer?

James

depending on what type of work you do - try a trade association for help first as they are more likely to have developed pro forma Ts & Cs that suit your purpose.

Having said that, Ts & Cs don't need to be complex. It depends what you do - how you plan to bill (having the money in hand is the best kind of guarantee, I find!) and whether there are issues of copyright, liabilities, legal issues etc.

I tend to use a combination of trade association advise the the Federation of Small Businesses free legal helpline to check these things.

Let us know more about what you do and I can guide you further.

Kirsty

Hi James,

I've put together template packs for a number of companies and so may be able to assist.

Drop me an email with some more information if it would be of interest.

Andy
