Which contract do you need if you mix UK and non UK clients? 1

It can be hard to decide which contract you need. Sometimes you don’t know where your business is going to take you and your clients can turn out to be overseas when you weren’t expecting that, or you can be setting up to be working globally from the start. Or you can find yourself working abroad while still being based in the UK.

You could get a global contract and use that only for your non-UK clients. That includes an equivalent DPA to the above. But that has the disadvantage that you are on two different contract bases which can be confusing over time:

You will find the global ranges here. Choose Terms of Business if you are providing the service and Hiring Agreement if you are using an associate who is in a different country (or travelling).

Which contract is right for you?

Which option is right for you depends on your plans for your business and how many contracts you want to be remembering to comply with.

The global data processing agreement or a separate global contract is the same price as each other. There is no cost implication in choosing one or the other when purchasing them separately.
