Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Myanmar

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 Myanmar.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Myanmar?

It's always a good idea to have a legal agreement in place when you hire someone, no matter where you are in the world. Without one, there can be all sorts of problems that can arise. You and the person you hire might not be clear on things like payment, time limits, or other crucial project details—and this is a growing field for all kinds of disasters.

The quicker you have an independent contractor agreement, the better. That way, you can focus on improving your business without worrying about all the what-ifs along the way.

What do contractor agreements in Myanmar typically need to have?

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

Often, when hiring in Myanmar, people don’t know how to recognize the differences between hiring an employee and a contractor. While there are pros and cons to both options, hiring a contractor is often the more efficient choice for those hiring abroad. Contractor agreements are typically quick to enforce, they cost less, and they are more flexible in the long run. But, of course, you need to think about everything that your project entails to make the best decision for your business.

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

  • 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*

It's easy to see why more and more people are choosing to hire contractors—they get to work on their own terms, and those hiring them get more freedom to focus on other things. Plus, it creates a good environment for building a strong and independent remote team. All in all, hiring contractors just makes sense for a lot of remote working relationships, but still— it’s a smart move to take some time to reflect if this type of agreement would best fit yours.
