What’s Included in the Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle?
Our Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle includes everything you need to make sure your VA business is protected!
1. Virtual Assistant Client Agreement
A Virtual Assistant Client Agreement is your most important legal document. It ensures that your client is crystal clear on your terms of business, including the scope of your engagement, deliverables, your payment terms and when each of you may terminate the contract.
Your clients will love our Virtual Assistant Client Agreement because it includes protections for their intellectual property and confidential information as well!
2. Independent Contractor Agreement
Need some help? Looking to outsource? No problem, with an Independent Contractor Agreement you can engage a contractor to help you deliver amazing service to your clients.
It helps to set the ground rules so that both parties can understand their obligations from the start. This contract contains all the essential ingredients, including services, payment, confidentiality, termination and limitation of liability, plus much more!
5. Letter of Demand
When your gentle payment reminders fall on deaf ears, it’s powerful to have a firm and professional Letter of Demand up your sleeve. Our Letter of Demand template will help to keep the cash in your business flowing.
Use our Letter of Demand template to formally request payment of an outstanding debt and provide a warning before commencing legal action. You might be able to recover your debts yourself without spending money on a lawyer or debt collector.
Who is this for?
★ Virtual Assistants
★ People who want proper legal protection
★ People who want to appear professional to their clients
★ People who want to avoid misunderstandings and clearly outline their services
Clearly set out your terms for clients
A contract protects both you and your clients.
You should always have a contract signed before you start a new virtual assistant job for a client. Our template has been specifically drafted for Virtual Assistants and clearly sets out the legal relationship between you and your clients.
Your legal documents and contracts help you to avoid risk and limit your liability if something does go wrong.
Protect your business and assets
As the old saying goes, plan for the best and prepare for the worst.
You never know what will happen in the future, but it is vital that you have contracts in place to protect everything you have worked hard for.
Do I need a contract?
Yes, absolutely! A contract protects both you and your clients.
You should always have a contract signed before you start a new virtual assistant job for a client.
A contract will help set the ground rules in black and white so everyone is clear on their obligations and how everything will work. You need a proper written contract to enforce your rights and make sure your business is legally protected in case there is ever a dispute.
Our Virtual Assistant Client Agreement will help you avoid misunderstandings, late payments and scope creep.
I’m just starting my Virtual Assistant business, do I really need all these documents?
Yes, they are recommended.
We have designed our Virtual Assistant Legal Bundle to include all of the essential legal documents so you have proper legal protection.
Can’t I just copy my contracts from another website?
Don’t do this.
1. This is copyright infringement and is against the law.
2. You might accidentally copy terms and conditions from another country – if you end up in court for some reason it might be on the other side of the world!
3. It won’t be customised to YOUR business. Not a good look for your customers if your info about your terms is wrong…
If I subcontract some of my work to other Virtual Assistants, can I still use the Client Agreement?
Yes, you can! This Client Agreement allows you to subcontract one or more aspects of the services you provide to the client but requires you to remain the head contractor (meaning that you will remain responsible for the subcontractor’s services).
What do Scope and Deliverables mean?
Scope means the type of services you will provide (e.g. social media posts, call answering, document proofing etc)
Deliverables means any specific items or quantities or projects (e.g. 5 hours per week)
Can my client just type their name in the signature box, or do they have to print it off and sign it?
We recommend that you only send the contract to people in PDF format. Ask them to sign the contract and return the signed copy to you for your records. If they just typed their name, it wouldn’t be possible to prove they had signed the contract if a dispute came up later on.
Can I customise the templates beyond editing the fields?
Our templates come in Word format, so yes you can if you want. Feel free to add your logo and change the font to reflect your brand.
We do not recommend you change the wording (apart from the fillable fields) as this can affect the legal protections contained in the document.
What if the law changes and my templates become outdated?
If the law changes, we’ll email you with the changes and updates to add to your existing templates. So please ensure you keep us updated if your email address changes.
