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.
Define the Scope of the Work - The terms constitute the body of the contract. Start off by clearly defining what it is the scope of the work or service you are to provide, and the timeline you propose to complete the work. Be specific. Don't simply say you will renovate a client's kitchen. Provide details of the cabinet designs, countertops, and other materials and work you will provide. If applicable, give a timeframe for each phase of a project.
