Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Mexico

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 Mexico.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Mexico?

Independent contractor agreements are the foundation for successful business partnerships between companies and contractors. They typically outline the scope of work, deadlines, compensation, and any other terms relevant to the specific partnership. Having a written agreement ensures you and a contractor are on the same page before the work begins and helps hold you accountable to each other.

It’s not uncommon for companies to work with contractors without a written agreement, but yours shouldn’t be one of them. Independent contractor agreements establish a legal relationship between you and a contractor, protecting you both in case one party violates the terms of the contract. Additionally, they serve as proof of the nature of your relationship with a contractor, helping protect your business from costly misclassification lawsuits.  

The verdict: It’s absolutely necessary to have a written agreement if you’re working with contractors. In Mexico, and everywhere else you hire.

What do contractor agreements in Mexico typically need to have?

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

In general, hiring contractors is faster, cheaper, and easier than hiring employees. While employees work for a company, contractors work for themselves, making their rights and responsibilities different from an employee’s. It’s important to understand the key differences between the two in order to make the right decision for your company.

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

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

Contractors benefit from working independently because it affords them more autonomy than a traditional employer-employee arrangement. They have the freedom to complete their work when, where, and how they want while being able to pursue additional contracts that interest them. Meanwhile, your company incurs less risk by working with contractors, because you are only committed to working with them for the duration of your contract. This gives you the flexibility to work with the best possible talent for your business, and Thera can help with a contract for every partnership you pursue.
