Uh, we’re just fine, thanks anyway
Look to be honest, a contract done on a handshake or scribbled on the back of a napkin might be perfectly fine - so long as you trust each other and nothing goes wrong. However, as your business grows, your contractual relationships with others become more complex. And sometimes an agreement 'in principle' just doesn't cover all the bases (or protect your back when things go pear shaped).
In our experience, if your business doesn't have clearly worded contracts, then you could be setting yourself up for a dispute later. Or - possibly worse - you're bending over backwards to keep clients happy, so you end up doing twice the work you scoped, and for free.
We don't believe contracts are just for when things go wrong. Setting it out in black and white helps formalise relationships, manage scope creep and define the boundaries so everyone knows what to expect. It shouldn't complicate the process or get in the way of doing business. Quite the opposite - clearing up the grey areas ahead of time means avoiding costly hassles down the track.
