Toimeksiantosopimus / palvelusopimus (englanniksi)

Mistä toimeksiantosopimuksessa sovitaan?

Toimeksiantosopimuksella yritys ostaa toiselta yritykseltä tietyn palvelun tai palvelukokonaisuuden. Esimerkkejä toimeksiantosopimuksista ovat erilaiset konsultaatio-, kiinteistönvälitys- ja huoltosopimukset. Kaiken kattavaa pakottavaa sääntelyä toimeksiantosopimuksista on vähän, eli osapuolet voivat määrätä sopimustensa sisällön yleensä varsin vapaasti.

Sopimuksen otsikko ei lähtökohtaisesti vaikuta sen sisällön tulkintaan – sopimus voi olla nimitykseltään paitsi toimeksiantosopimus, myös palvelusopimus, asiakassopimus tai tilaussopimus.

Juristien laatimat mallisisällöt

Sopimuskoneen toimeksiantosopimuksen malli auttaa sinua laadukkaan sopimuksen laatimisessa. Malli sisältää juristiemme laatimat mallisisällöt, joista voit valita omaan sopimukseesi mieluisat. Sopimuskone kysyy sinulta eri kohdissa myös jatkokysymyksiä ja muotoilee mallisisällöt vastaustesi perusteella. Saatavilla on neuvontaa kohta kohdalta, mitä ottaa huomioon, kun teet valintoja.

Kysymyksessä ei ole siis yksittäinen palvelusopimuksen pohja, vaan moderni teknologia, jolla laadit omiin tarpeisiisi soveltuvan sopimuksen lähes hiirenklikkauksin.

Tämä sopimusmalli on englanniksi. Sopimuskoneessa on erikseen myös suomenkielinen versio.

Mitkä ovat sopimuksenteon vaiheet Sopimuskoneella?

  1. Valitse valmiista valikostamme, mitä kohtia haluat sopimukseesi (tässä asiakirjamallissa esim. palvelun sisältö, palkkio ja salassapito)
  2. Sopimuskone kysyy sinulta kohta kohdalta jatkokysymyksiä, joiden perusteella automaatio muotoilee mallitekstejämme sinulle paremmaksi (esim. palkkion maksutapa, salassapidon kesto)
  3. Kun sopimus on valmis, osapuolet allekirjoittavat sen sähköisesti puhelimella tai tietokoneella (tulostaminen ja postittaminen eivät ole siis tarpeen, ellet erityisestä syystä halua)
  4. Sopimus arkistoituu automaattisesti yrityksesi Sopimustilille, johon pääset myöhemmin selaimella tai Sopimustiedon mobiilisovelluksella (myös toinen osapuoli saa oman sopimuskappaleensa digitaalisesti)
  5. Jatkossa voit sujuvasti muokata ja monistaa kerran tekemääsi toimeksiantosopimusta tuleviin toimeksiantoihisi

Assignment Agreement (Service Agreement)

What is an assignment agreement?

With an assignment agreement, the company purchases a specific service or service package from another company. Typical assignment agreements include real estate brokerage, consultancy and maintenance agreements. In principle, the designation of the agreement does not affect the interpretation of its content – the agreement may also be designated as a service agreement, customer agreement or subscription agreement.

With a written agreement, you avoid disputes and ambiguities

The assignment agreement should be made in writing in order to avoid future ambiguities. From the agreement, both the parties can check what has been agreed upon. Many disputes are not due to the dishonesty of either party, but to the fact that the parties already had a different perception of the content of the agreement from the outset. Therefore, a written agreement protects not only against dishonesty but also against honest misunderstandings.

All key terms of the assignment should be recorded in the agreement. What has not been agreed will be governed by the customary practices of the field and the general principles of contract law. However, these principles are unlikely to be best suited to the individual needs of the parties.

What is the easiest way to prepare an assignment agreement?

You can easily prepare a suitable assignment agreement using Sopimustieto. You can create signature-ready agreement at best with mouse clicks – our carefully developed standard terms adapt to your situation. Thus the question is not of a traditional single template or form template but of modern technology that includes terms and standard content for thousands of different templates.

Our customers have already prepared more than 3000 agreements using our customised assignment agreement template.

Entrepreneur's assignment agreement, including standard terms for hundreds of different situations

Sopimustieto offers standard content based on established agreement practices in the following sub-areas, for example:

  • Definition of the assignment
  • Schedule of the assignment and validity of the agreement
  • Fee for the assignment
  • Other costs to be reimbursed to the service provider
  • Use of subcontractors in the assignment
  • Intellectual property rights (e.g. copyrights, trademarks)
  • Confidentiality (business secrets revealed in the course of the assignment)
  • Consequences of a breach of contract (e.g. contractual penalty)
  • Settlement of disputes (e.g. arbitration proceedings or district court)
  • Transfer of the agreement to a third party (if the business of either party is sold in the future)
  • Interpretation of the agreement (e.g. all amendments to the agreement must be made in writing)
  • Applicable law (Finnish law or that of another state)

If you don't want to use our standard terms, you can also freely write content yourself.

What things should be paid attention to in almost all service agreements?

  1. The object and scope of the service should be carefully defined. A typical dispute is caused by the extent of the services included in the agreement.

  2. Schedules easily cause disagreement. By which time should the work be completed and what are the consequences of possible delay?

  3. In particular, a confidentiality term protecting the parties’ business secrets should be routinely incorporated in an agreement concerning information-intensive services. It is worth enhancing the obligation with a sufficiently large contractual penalty.

How can the other party accept the agreement I have drafted using Sopimustieto?

You can invite the other party to view your assignment agreement in Sopimustieto with an SMS or email. The party can accept the offer with its electronic signature, which belongs to our service.

How is my agreement archived?

A few years ago the developers of Sopimustieto became frustrated by the fact that a specific service agreement or other document could not be found in a folder or e-mail when it would have been needed. In Sopimustieto, all of your agreements are automatically archived on your company’s agreement account, so you can easily find them afterwards and they will not disappear. The other party also receives its own agreement copy easily in digital form.

  5. The agreement is automatically archived on your company’s agreement account, which you can later access directly from your computer or phone (the other party will also receive its agreement copy digitally)
