Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Italy

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 Italy.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Italy?

Having an independent contractor agreement can be extremely beneficial, particularly when working with remote employees—this is because it’s a document that allows you and your contractor to establish mutually agreeable terms, avoiding any potential miscommunications or surprises related to compensation, deadlines, and other important project details. Having a clear and concise independent contractor agreement can help prevent issues that can stress you out big time!

We know it can be tempting to rely on a handshake and verbal agreement, especially when you have a good working relationship. But, let's be real, things can go wrong, especially in a legal sense, and it's better to be safe than sorry. This is exactly why typically in Italy people sign independent contractor agreements as soon as they start working together. You don’t want your project and maybe even your business to fall through just because you missed such an easy step!

So why take the risk? Protect yourself and your contractor by signing a contract from the start. This way, you can focus on collaborating effectively and achieving success without any unexpected bumps in the road!

What do contractor agreements in Italy typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in Italy (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 Italy should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for Italy, sign up to Thera
