Are you working from home? Do you know what small business legals you need in place? Do you have a clear and concise Client Agreement? Do your clients know what to expect from working with you?

Shalini Nandan-Singh, an experienced lawyer and owner of Legally Shalini, shares with us today the answer to these questions.

Many micro and small business owners choose to reduce overheads by using their home as their place of business. I know I also work from home because of the ease and flexibility that comes along with that.

But what small business legals do you need to have in place when you are choosing to work from home?

Do you need a formal client agreement? Do you need something different if you are only meeting with your clients online?

If you don't have these formal agreements in place, have you thought about your terms and conditions? How do you clients and even your potential clients know what to expect from working with you and how are you ensuring that you meet these expectations?

Check out this 8 min video where Shalini answers these questions for you.
