Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in The Philippines?

When you're hiring someone in The Philippines, it's really important to have everything set in stone, and available for both parties—and there’s no better way to do that than creating and signing an effective contractor agreement. That way, you won't have to worry about any unpleasant surprises about important stuff like payment or deadlines. It's a good way to make sure everyone's on the same page, and that’s the most important thing when starting a new working relationship.

No matter where you are in the world, it's always a good idea to have a written contract. It's just smarter to have everything in writing rather than finding out the hard way that something important was left out. Trust us, it will be worth your while!

What do contractor agreements in The Philippines typically need to have?

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

One of the first things you probably considered when you decided to hire a remote worker from The Philippines was whether you should go for a contractor, or would an employee be better. It’s not an easy choice and it usually depends on the nature of your project. However, hiring contractors for your remote work needs is more popular than ever—it’s easier and cheaper, and your contractor will be able to start working in weeks, or maybe even days.

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

  • 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*
