Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Ireland

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 Ireland.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Ireland?

So, what’s the real importance of independent contractor agreements? They serve as the legal foundation for your work with your contractor. Without an agreement, you’re on shakier legal footing—and if problems arise, it’s significantly more difficult to resolve things. A written contract agreement serves as your single source of truth for project details and payment.

It’s not just Ireland, though—it’s a good idea to have a contractor agreement wherever you’re hiring remote workers. Both you and them will feel much more relaxed when you know that you have a document protecting your rights.

What do contractor agreements in Ireland typically need to have?

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

Did you realize just how different it can be to hire employees and contractors in Ireland? It's probably something you already heard about, but the process for onboarding each one is unique. Now, when it comes to contractors, you have to go through a lot less hassle to get them onboard and your relationship will be much more flexible. That means your project can be up and running whenever you need it to be. And the best part? It's usually more budget-friendly too since you don't have to worry about additional fees and taxes.

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

  • 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*
