When going into business with another person or company, you must have a partnership agreement or a joint venture agreement. The terms and conditions of the partnership or joint venture should include a percentage of ownership (who owns what), allocations of profits and losses, liability clauses, a definition of who makes decisions and who binds the partnership, and clauses specifying what would happen in the event of the death of one of the partners.
JOINT VENTURE AGREEMENT
When a company is going into business with another company, you must have a joint venture agreement. The terms and conditions of the joint venture should include a percentage of ownership (who owns what), allocations of profits and losses, liability clauses, a definition of who makes decisions and who binds the partnership, and clauses specifying what would happen in the event of the dissolution of one of the partners.What is a Joint Venture?
How to Enter into a Joint Venture Agreement?
A non-disclosure agreement is a confidentiality contract. Whenever your company wishes to do business with another company or corporation, you can (and probably should) sign a non-disclosure agreement to protect corporate secrets. These secrets are disclosed to the other signing party upon conditions of secrecy and restricted use.
INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT
Some employees are brought on by your crew itself, and they are contracted directly to your sales team, or employee rankings. Independent contractors have a slightly different agreement that they sign because they are not technically full employees of your business. They are valuable assets to you, however. Independent contractor agreements work similarly to employment agreements, but with certain differences in taxes and compensation.
Consultants are typically independent contractors, but their role is unique in your company’s infrastructure. Consulting agreements should include terms which specify the scope of the work to be done, the specific length of the contracted work to be done, and a breach of contract clause, as is customary in every contract.
Employment agreements are hiring contracts. They set the terms of a person’s employment, such as payment, bonus and graduation structure, and various causes for termination and compensation in the event of a layoff.
BUSINESS SALES AGREEMENT
A business sale agreement states specifically what assets of your business is being sold to whom. It states liabilities, closing dates, price, inventory, payment terms, obligation for fees, and a few other articles declaring the contents and covenants of your business. Be sure to include all of the proper information and clauses for the sale, as it’s important that this go smoothly.
Franchise agreements are typically a non-negotiable, unilateral agreement that one party will sign with the franchise which they wish to represent. The terms include behavioral and representative requirements, breach of contract clauses, and other licensing clauses.
BILL OF SALE
A Bill of Sales state the legal owner of something is. It contains the information about who, what, and when was sold and for how much.
POWER OF ATTORNEY
This document permits an individual to act as a legal, financial, and medical decision maker on behalf of another person. The attorney-in-fact, or person to whom this power is granted, can manage important matters for the person transferring the power.
An interesting note: of the common contracts noted in this article, only the power of attorney is not legally permitted to utilize an e-signature. Every other form of contract discussed here can be managed online, which includes drafting, negotiating, signing, monitoring for compliance, and many other facets. You can save yourself a lot of time and hassle using this method to manage your contracts.
SHAREHOLDERS' AGREEMENT / STOCKHOLDERS' AGREEMENT
A shareholders' agreement (sometimes referred to in the U.S. as a stockholders' agreement), SHA in short is an agreement amongst the shareholders of a company or Corporation.
In strict legal theory, the relationships amongst the shareholders and those between the shareholders and the company are regulated by the constitutional documents of the company. However, where there are a relatively small number of shareholders, like in a Startup company, it is quite common in practice for the shareholders to supplement the constitutional document.
There are a number of reasons why the shareholders may wish to supplement (or supersede) the constitutional documents of the company in this way:
- a company's constitutional documents are normally available for public inspection, whereas the terms of a shareholders' agreement, as a private law contract, are normally confidential between the parties.
- contractual arrangements are generally cheaper and less formal to form, administer, revise or terminate.
- the shareholders might wish to provide for disputes to be resolved by arbitration, or in the courts of a foreign country (meaning a country other than the country in which the company is incorporated). In some countries, corporate law does not permit such dispute resolution clauses to be included in the constitutional documents.
- greater flexibility; the shareholders may anticipate that the company's business requires regular changes to their arrangements, and it may be unwieldy to repeatedly amend the corporate constitution.
- corporate law in the relevant country may not provide sufficient protection for minority shareholders, who may seek to better protect their position by using a shareholders' agreement.
- to provide mechanisms for removing minority shareholders which preserve the company as a going concern.
An operating agreement is a key document used by LLCs because it outlines the business' financial and functional decisions including rules, regulations and provisions.
The purpose of the document is to govern the internal operations of the business in a way that suits the specific needs of the business owners. Once the document is signed by the members of the limited liability company, it acts as an official contract binding them to its terms.
Many states in the United States require an LLC to have an operating agreement. LLCs operating without an operating agreement are governed by the state's default rules contained in the relevant statute and developed through state court decisions. An operating agreement is similar in function to corporate by-laws, or analogous to a partnership agreement in multi-member LLCs.
In single-member LLCs, an operating agreement is a declaration of the structure that the member has chosen for the company and sometimes used to prove in court that the LLC structure is separate from that of the individual owner and thus necessary so that the owner has documentation to prove that he or she is indeed separate from the entity itself.
Most states do not require operating agreements. However, an operating agreement is highly recommended for multi-member LLCs because it structures your LLC's finances and organization, and provides rules and regulations for smooth operation. The operating agreement usually includes percentage of interests, allocation of profits and losses, member's rights and responsibilities and other provisions.
Operating agreements are legally significant. Having a correctly drafted operating agreement is crucial in case legal disputes arise between business owners.
Businesses of all sizes deal in the contracts mentioned above. Keeping track of them all with paper can be tedious, time consuming, and lead to errors. Contract management softwares provide a much cleaner and more efficient method for negotiating, executing, and storing these types of contracts with just a few mouse clicks.
