Consultancy, commission, introduction and referral agreements

09 May 2019

An increasing number of executives and business people are now forced or chose to engage in a more flexible way of working. In doing so, they seek to exploit their experience, skills, contacts and client lists.

There are a number of ways that this can be achieved, as a full time option or as part of a portfolio career offering the executive flexibility, potentially significant rewards and challenge. Businesses can also benefit from obtaining expertise, contacts and sales without incurring a major upfront liability, either economically or as an employer, rewarding only the successful.

This factsheet outlines: What is a consultant worth?, Commission/introducer/referral arrangements (CIR arrangement), and The CIR Agreement.
