Using independent contractors can be of great benefit to your company
and can save money. However, they must be classified correctly.
The IRS has specific guidelines on how to classify independent contractors. If your company does not classify them properly, you could suffer significant tax penalties. A wrong classification may cause additional problems for your company pension plans and employee benefits.
Without a well-wrtten independent contractor agreement, you may open your company up to IRS and California tax liabilities that you did not plan on.
Furthermore, you want to make sure you are protecting all copyrights, patents, trade secrets, and other intellectual property arising from the work performed under the agreement.
