Services Agreement for Bookkeepers

So, we heard you like numbers! Come on down, clever cookie – every biz needs a bookkeeper, and every bookkeeper needs a legally legit biz of their own. Not that we're biased, but the best place to start is with our Services Agreement for Bookkeepers. Keep your scope clear and your clients confident so you can get back to the books!

Who's it for?

Our Services Agreement for Bookkeepers is for number-wranglers who are all about processing payments, organising reconciliations and preparing all those other financial bits and pieces that businesses need to keep things running smoothly (particularly come tax time). Want to talk all things legal and make sure this contract is right for you? Book in a complimentary chat with one of our lawyers and we'll put you on the right path.

What's included

  • Clear payment terms
  • Your obligations (and those of your client)
  • Intellectual property protection
  • Termination terms
  • Refund and cancellation provisions
  • A completely customisable proposal that sets out the specifics
  • BAS Agent Authority form
  • Internet banking access authorisation form
  • Many more industry-specific bits and pieces to ensure your arrangement is legally legit


A couple of quick things to make sure we’re on the same page:

First, purchasing our templates, utilising our free resources or having a chat with us as part of a consultation doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Foundd Legal (sorry!). It also doesn’t constitute legal advice.

All templates adhere to Australian principles of contract law and are designed for those doing business in Australia (unless they specifically state that they are in accordance with New Zealand law, for businesses in New Zealand). Similar principles may apply in your jurisdiction, but we recommend that you consult with a qualified lawyer in your area prior to purchasing our templates.

While we do our best to minimise legalese (that’s complex lawyer-speak) within our contracts, there are certain things that require particular wording in order to best protect you and your business. Please don’t expect our contracts to be super simple - they’re as simple as they possibly can be, while still being comprehensive and putting your needs first (even the ones you didn’t know you had!). Of course, if you’re having trouble understanding something specific, you’re welcome to get in touch with any questions!
