Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Russia

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 Russia.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Russia?

An independent contractor agreement is your foundation for establishing a good working relationship with your contractor. It will help you set boundaries and manage expectations. Without an independent contractor agreement, important details like payment and deadlines may become unclear or open to interpretation, which can lead to misunderstandings and disputes that you may not have a strong legal basis to rely on.

Typically, unregulated working relationships can lead to low-quality work and potential legal issues. So, instead of asking why you need an independent contractor agreement, it’s better to ask: why not? It’s in your and your contractor’s best interest to start your working relationship with both parties legally safe and in the loop.

What do contractor agreements in Russia typically need to have?

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

Trying to decide between hiring an independent contractor or employee in Russia? Companies that hire with Thera find that hiring contractors is the faster, easier, more flexible way to hire abroad. Not only is it faster and cheaper to hire contractors remotely, it also gives you more wiggle room when it comes to your agreement.  But don't forget, contractors and employees are not the same thing, so make sure you know the difference before you make your choice.

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

  • 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*

Hiring contractors is the faster, cheaper, more flexible way to hire abroad. And, when you use Thera, you’re able to hire & pay with an employment-like experience—no more messy spreadsheets and manual wire transfers.

*With Thera, you can get your contractors access to sign up for premium global health insurance, from SafetyWing, at a 50% discount.
