We believe that your business legals should be an authentic extension of your business, creating positive business boundaries that support you in working with your clients with compassion and understanding. Your business legals are not just a bunch of documents full of confusing legal jargon. They are a tool that can help you run your business with integrity and in alignment with your values. Love Your Legals’ are proud to produce a custom consulting agreement Australia-based businesses not only want, but need.

By taking the time to clearly define your business boundaries, you create a container for your work that supports you in serving your clients with care and compassion. In current vernacular, we might say that you are creating a “safe space” for your clients. This space is not only physical, but also emotional and spiritual. It is a space where your clients can feel seen, heard, and valued. When you operate from this foundation of compassionate understanding, you build trust with your clients and create relationships that are rooted in respect and mutuality. 

Consultant-client relationships are not exempt from the basic human need for connection, belonging, and safety. In fact, these needs may be even more pronounced in the context of legal services, which can often be fraught with emotion and conflict. By taking the time to establish clear boundaries and build compassionate connections with your clients, you create a space where everyone can thrive.

Custom Consultation Agreement Australia - FAQs

Is a consultancy agreement legally binding?

Yes, if it has been agreed to and signed by both parties. Consulting agreements are best written by a lawyer to be legally binding. It also helps to have a lawyer create your own bespoke templates for you to use with multiple contractors!

Do I need a licence to be a consultant in Australia?

Professional certificates are not required by law for prospective consultants to practise or seek employment. However, if you wish to work in a certain industry, it is typically a good idea to obtain a professional certification.

Is a consultant considered an independent contractor?

The simple answer is yes. However, a consultant's function is to assess a client's needs and give professional advice and opinion on what needs to be done, whereas a contractor's or freelancer's role is to actually accomplish the task.

Do consultants need an ABN?

You don't need a corporation or a business name to charge your customer, but you will need an ABN. If you require a Pty Ltd company, the customer will inform you. You may obtain an ABN for yourself as an individual or for your business/company.
