An advisory contract is concluded between a client and a person who provides services, advice or knowledge against payment. Although the consultant is paid by the hour, the consultant in most cases works as an independent contractor, much like a lawyer. The consultant often calculates to the client a “Pay for Hire” basis which is invoiced after the provision of incremental services. In addition, some consultants have a minimum requirement of hours, called a “retainer”, that the client pays in advance for a predetermined number of hours at an agreed rate of pay ($/hour). A client may choose to use a consulting contract when engaging a contractor to protect the company`s information through confidentiality clauses. (ii) interim.
