When starting a business, one of the most important things you can do is to create a clear, well-written contract agreement. A contract agreement outlines the terms and conditions of a business relationship between two parties, and it can help prevent misunderstandings and legal disputes down the road.
Here is a sample business contract agreement that you can use as a starting point for your own agreement:
