A South Dakota independent contractor agreement is used by freelancers and their clients to establish and detail the terms and conditions of their business relationship. The agreement describes the nature of the services the freelancer will provide and their compensation for services rendered.
The freelancer is not an employee of the client and is able to complete the work as they deem fit; however, the freelancer shall be responsible for their business license, permits, taxes, and insurance needs. The precise nature of the agreement serves to reduce the chance of conflict between the parties, making it an invaluable resource.
