The sample Sales Representative Agreement available free to download, modify and print for your small business.
The Sales Rep Agreement is a legal contract between an organization or company and/or individual who sells, manufactures or distributes a product or service and a salesman who will sell their product or service in exchange for certain compensation. This agreement outlines the recitals, terms and conditions for hiring an independent sales rep on behalf of the company.
The Sales Rep Contract describes the role and geographic area of the sales representative, commission and payment structure plus the obligation and responsibilities of both parties.
If you are an independent sales representative creating an agreement with your principal is of major importance.
The first step to signing an appropriate sales rep agreement is to study the job requirements very carefully. The task that is being assigned needs to be make sure and fit in with your experience and qualifications. Call the principal company or agent and request details if you are not clear on a particular job description. By talking to the company, this will help you to be clear on the targets that you need to accomplish, your incentive pay and future prospects with the company.
You can also find out if your principal will provide any kind of training. This can definitely make a lot of difference in the way you are going to be able to sell as the manufacturers representative.
Reminder: The small business forms, agreements, contracts, etc. that you received free or if you were charged for them can never replace the advice of a lawyer. Each state has different circumstances and laws that apply to different types of businesses.
We strongly recommend that you have your forms, especially legal agreements or contracts, reviewed by a lawyer in your state for any questions or legalities.
