Australian Master Service Agreement Template is an agreement made between two or more parties in which they both agree to most of the terms used to govern any future agreements or future transactions. Master Service Agreements are predominantly utilised by website developers, software developers or sellers of other digital products where ongoing services are likely.

They set out standard terms that deal with clear definitions of the scope of services, the term of the services, intellectual property ownership and confidentiality.

Each Business Kitz resource contains comprehensive guidance notes as well as helpful suggestions to assist you with populating the document.

Why does your business need a Master Service Agreement Template (software and digital products)?

What is the purpose of a master service agreement? Master Service Agreements are important for businesses that provide a range of services and would like to standardise their terms and conditions for easy use, particularly with recurring clients.

For service providers (website, software developers or digital product providers), this Agreement protects the payment of their fees and their liability.

For customers, comprehensive Master Service Agreement clauses will predominantly protect your intellectual property, assist you to manage the service provider’s fees and allow you to clearly understand the service you can expect and not expect.

This Business Kitz template is a very comprehensive agreement and covers many facets of the relationship that need to be considered from both the customer and service provider’s perspective.

If you are looking for an agreement template to be used for a service either in a one-off arrangement or if the service is to be the same for each customer, you should consider whether a Service Provider Agreement would be more suitable.
