Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Spain

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 Spain.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Spain?

Let’s break it down: it's always a good idea to have everything in writing when it comes to remote projects, for both you and your contractor. Verbal agreements might seem like they'll work out just fine, but sometimes things can get a little blurry or slip your mind.

When you're working with someone remotely, whether they're in Spain or anywhere else, having a contractor agreement gives you a single source of truth for all things relating to your working relationship. So, even if you have complete faith in your contractor, it's still a good idea to get everything in writing. With contractors from Spain, and everywhere else too.

What do contractor agreements in Spain typically need to have?

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

Should you hire a remote worker from Spain as a contractor or an employee? First things first, hiring contractors is super popular these days when hiring remotely. It's usually more cost-effective, not to mention simple, and you can usually get a contractor onboarded and working in no time! So if you need to get your project up and running ASAP, going the contractor route is probably your best bet. Just something to keep in mind when you're making your decision.

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

  • 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.
