Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Latvia

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 Latvia.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Latvia?

A contractor agreement is you and your contractor’s single source of truth for key project details, like payment and scope of work.

Having a written agreement can really help establish a healthy working relationship with your contractor. It can provide ground rules and make sure that everyone is on the same page. Without a contract, important details about the project can become a bit unclear and open to interpretation, and this usually leads to misunderstandings and even legal issues.

No matter where you are, it's always a good idea to have something in writing when you're working with someone.

What do contractor agreements in Latvia typically need to have?

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

It's important to take some time to consider whether you want to hire a contractor or an employee from Latvia. It can be easy to mix them up, but they have different rules and regulations to follow. Hiring an employee can be more complex and may involve more legal responsibilities. However, contractors often offer more flexibility and can start a project more quickly because there isn't as much paperwork and legal process to go through. Many businesses choose to hire contractors for these exact reasons.

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

  • 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*

Have you noticed that a lot of businesses are hiring contractors these days? There's a good reason for that. Contractors can work on their own schedule and often require less supervision than regular employees. This can make for a more relaxed and stress-free work environment, which can actually lead to better efficiency. Many teams that hire through Thera find that hiring their team as contractors lets them get better work done.
