Our engagement letters have been supplemented by an example sub-contractor agreement that can be used by a practitioner acting as a sub-contractor to a regulated firm engaged in public practice.
Many practitioners at peak times or using specialist expertise reach out and use a sub-contractor. It is important that the engagement is clear between both parties which is why we have a free model agreement available to support our practitioners.
The agreement provided has been prepared on the basis that it will be used by a practitioner or highlighted by the firm to a practitioner acting as a sub-contractor. It is likely to be most suitable for a simple, short-term sub-contracting relationship or situations where the sub-contracting services are ancillary to the main business of the practitioner.
