Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Hong Kong

You probably have questions. We’re here to answer them. Below, you’ll learn all the extra stuff you should probably know before putting together an independent contractor agreement for Hong Kong.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Hong Kong?

The answer to this question is simple—it will help you maintain stability and transparency in your work relationship. Starting off by establishing clear boundaries surrounding your project is the first brick in building a strong business foundation. An independent contractor agreement will also serve as a guiding light if things get muddied up along the way.

It’s not just about that though. Many companies decide it’s just too much of a hassle to learn about independent contractor laws in Hong Kong, so they skip writing up a legal agreement when hiring. What usually happens next is a tale as old as time. One side forgets the terms they agreed to, decides to change them along the way, or simply drops off the face of the Earth—the work is left unfinished, trust is broken, and more often than not, serious legal issues ensue.

To avoid all of this, take the time to learn and approach the matter of writing up a contractor agreement with care whenever you hire remotely. After all, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!

What do contractor agreements in Hong Kong typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in Hong Kong (and, the rest of the world) can be broken up into two parts:

  • Contract-specific variables: This includes things like scope of work, rate, and deadline. They’re the project-specific variables that you’ll include with each contract, and are totally dependent on what type of work you’re hiring a contractor to do.
  • Everything else: Besides things like scope and deadline, every independent contractor agreement in Hong Kong should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for Hong Kong, sign up to Thera for $0.
What makes contractors different from employees in Hong Kong?

Most people instantly go for hiring their talent as an independent contractor rather than an employee—and there’s a good reason for that. Choosing an employer-employee route is much more expensive, takes months to establish, and in the end, you end up with a very codependent working relationship which can be hard to maintain remotely. This is typical not only for hiring in Hong Kong but in most countries.

Here are a few of the key things that make contractors different from employees in Hong Kong:

  • Contractors can set their own schedules
  • Contractors can work with their own software and tools 
  • Contractors can work for other clients 
  • Contractors rarely receive benefits, like health insurance*

In general, it is easier to get a task done when you have control over how, where, and when you do it. That’s exactly what you’re offering to your new hire when you enter into an independent contractor relationship. No more overbearing bosses, unclear working conditions, or suffocating business environments! Just sit back and enjoy watching your company’s stable rise to success with the efficient and happy remote team by your side.
