Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Paraguay

You may 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 Paraguay.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Paraguay?

Independent contractor agreements are an important part of the relationship between you and a contractor. They are necessary to make sure everyone is on the same page about the work to be completed, deadlines, and pay. Paraguayan labor law prohibits fixed-term contracts for independent contractors from exceeding 1 year, so you might include an end date in your agreement as well.

Written agreements are also necessary to protect both parties’ legal interests. They are often the only proof of a partnership between a company and a contractor, so it is in everyone’s best interest to have one as protection in case the other party violates the terms of your agreement.

Basically, you need a written agreement any time you work with a contractor. It might take a few more steps than a verbal agreement in the beginning, but that’s a small price to pay to protect your business and the contractor’s rights.

What do contractor agreements in Paraguay typically need to have?

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

Companies often find that hiring contractors helps them save time, money, and stress. Contractors should not be thought of exactly as employees, though. Instead of receiving many of the benefits that employees are entitled to, contractors retain additional rights and freedoms.

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

  • 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*

Many talented individuals prefer working as contractors to being an employee because it is less limiting. Independent contractors can complete their work how they want, take on additional clients, and be their own bosses. Often this arrangement is best for the hiring companies too, because they can hire individuals who truly have a passion for the work they need to be done. If this sounds right for your company, we can help you get started with an independent contractor agreement.
