When you’re working with clients, it’s important to set clear expectations on the scope, timeline, and cost of the project. Not only does it help the project run more smoothly, but it also protects you from client disputes and conflict.
Contracts make it easy to get these expectations squared away, as they put the terms and conditions of your collaboration in writing and document the approval of both you and your client. And since you can return to the contract anytime you need to, resolving confusion and disagreement with your clients is easy too.
The trick is: you need to know what to include in a consultant agreement form. Otherwise, you can end up wasting a lot of time on a document that won’t actually protect your business.
Here are 10 must-haves in every consultant contract template:

Populate each contract template with your client’s information by selecting HoneyBook’s predefined field and clicking your client’s name. Then, fill in specific details like payment amounts and due dates by entering field values into preselected spaces.
