Free consultancy agreement

This is a free consultancy agreement. It includes straightforward provisions regarding the provision of consultancy services and the supply of deliverables resulting from the provision of those services.

The template incorporates a licence to use the deliverables, but does not include any assignment of rights in the deliverables. Accordingly, the consultant retains ownership.

You are welcome to use the document without purchasing a licence, providing that you retain the SEQ credit in the document. The document is identical to the consultancy agreement (basic) document, save for the credit.
