This service is designed so that, through our questionnaire and the selected options, your service contract can be tailored as much for simple business situations as for more complex situations requiring a contract with more specific clauses.

The service contract is an agreement between a client, the one who requires the service, and the service provider, the one who undertakes to provide the services requested by the client. The client who retains the services of a provider usually does so for the performance of a specific work for a predetermined period of time, although this can be planned for an indefinite period.

The service contract governs in particular:

  • The specific services of the provider to the client;
  • The type of compensation provided for the performed services and the terms of payment, including any advances that may be made to the provider;
  • The length of the provided services, whether for a fixed or indefinite period, as well as the rate at which services will be provided during this period.

The signing of a service contract is intended to prevent potential conflicts between the parties as it sets out in advance the main rules that will govern the economic and business relationship between the parties concerning the retained services, in particular as regards the cancellation of the contract and its termination in the event of a default by the service provider or the client.

This service contract has been designed to incorporate the main clauses applicable to this type of contract, an overview of which is available in the "Summary" tab.

  • Our service contract will meet relatively simple needs. For a service contract of which conditions are very complex, please contact .
