This document creates an agreement for one business to supply services to another in the United Kingdom. It can be amended to reflect any type of service and includes provisions which will address typical issues that may arise under service contracts.
The document will provide both parties with clear terms dealing with both core aspects of a services contract such as pay, hours and location of work, as well as broader issues such as competition, confidentiality, sub-contracting, liabilities and intellectual property. A business can also deal with certain issues in separate documents, for example by using a stand alone non-compete agreement or a non-disclosure agreement.
Please note that the document should not be used for non-business customers or where sales of services are concluded online.
How the document is to be used
The contract should be provided to both parties to be signed and exchanged. If either party is a company, the document should be signed by an authorised person such as a director or secretary. Both parties should then keep a copy.
If any further matters are required to be agreed, or any agreed amendments made, such agreements should be documented, dated and signed.
Any Applicable Law
The contract is governed by the general principles of contractual law.
A minimum standard of care will be implied under the Sale of Good and Services Act 1982.
Rights regarding third parties are also addressed in the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 (for users in Northern Ireland and England and Wales).
Rights and obligations regarding the termination of agreements when a party is facing insolvency are governed by the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 and Insolvency Act 1986.
Both parties should also be aware of the provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977.
Both parties must also meet the requirements of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the retained EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (UK GDPR).
