Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in India

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 India.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in India?

India is one of the biggest hubs of remote talent in the world. Because of that, they have a very developed independent contracting system. Having a detailed, viable contract in India is usually a must. Clearly stating things like paycheck, deadlines, and other elements of the project is very important for both your relationship with the contractor and the legality of your collaboration.

If you choose to forgo drawing up an independent contractor agreement, you could have a lot of trouble down the road. Lots of cases of unclear or abandoned contracts lead to painstaking legal issues—and that can be horrible for everyone involved.

That’s why remote teams use Thera to get a compliant contract in India in minutes. You can start for free.

What do contractor agreements in India typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in India (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 India should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for India, sign up to Thera for $0.
What makes contractors different from employees in India?

When hiring Indian talent, the first question that usually pops up is: should I hire an independent contractor or an employee? The answer is almost always the same—if you want a simple and efficient hiring process, it’s generally best to go for independent contracting. It takes way less time and money, and it gives both you and the person you want to hire more flexibility in your agreement. 

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

  • Contractors in India are typically only involved in short-term projects, which gives both the contractor and the person hiring them much more space to choose if they want to continue collaborating or not
  • 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*

Flexibility, autonomy, and a stress-free work environment are the biggest pros of hiring a person as a contractor. You will more likely than not end up with a highly motivated and independent remote team, happy to help you out on your business journey. And, after all, isn’t that what it’s all about?
