When you have a business where customers contract you to perform a service, you need a legally binding agreement to spell out of the terms and conditions of the business relationship. According to "All Business," a business agreement serves as a guide that all parties to the agreement must follow. Generally, one party draws up the agreement and both parties sign the it as an acknowledgment of the terms and conditions it contains.
Sign and Date the Contract - "If an entity is a party to a contract, it is imperative that the signature block properly identifies the party signing on behalf of that entity," writes Michigan attorney Michael J. Hamblin in his website's article How to Properly Sign a Contract so It Will Be Enforceable. The signature block should name the entity, then under the signature, the name and title of the person signing, such as: Jones Plumbing, LLC By: John Jones Manager. Each signee should include the date next to the signature.
