When Do you Need An Accounting Contract?

Regardless of the type of work you plan to do, you should always consider making an accounting contract. In the agreement you should mention the length of the engagement. This will help both parties understand the scope of their responsibilities. Because of an agreement, neither party is confused about fees charged. For any reason, if you and your client might experience difficulty getting paid, unexpected changes, unmet standards of quality, unclear timelines,   and, not to mention, almost no ability to make demands when problems arise, then the agreement will protect you legally.

FAQ About Our Accounting Contract Template?

We all want every client project to run smoothly. However, it’s not always the case. Sometimes you get an unreasonable client or, even worse, a lawsuit. A contract protects you against those situations and gives you a reference document to be accountable to. So while it’s not a requirement to have an accounting contract, it’s a good idea to have one.

We acknowledge that you may need to adjust your accounting contract depending on the needs of your clients. That’s why we’ve made our template available in Word so you can make changes as needed. However, if you intend to make significant modifications, we advise you to consult with a lawyer for compliance.
