Partnership Agreement

Why you need a Partnership Agreement

Teamwork makes the dream work, as they say. Companies joining forces on a project, pulling resources and sharing information can help all parties involved. But who gets paid what? Which company takes the lead? Who is liable for mistakes and delays? This is where a Partnership Agreement comes in.

What is a Partnership Agreement?

Our Partnership Agreement has been specifically designed for Microsoft Partners who wish to join forces on a project for a customer, or wish to mutually refer customers to each other. This agreement contains all the intricacies and contractual promises made between the Partners.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When should I use a Partnership Agreement?

A: The agreement should be agreed and signed before the partnership can begin, otherwise neither party will have a contractual obligation to the other.

Q: Can a partner change the terms of a Partnership Agreement?

A: Either partner may amend the terms of a Partnership Agreement if it is agreed, in writing, by both parties. However, if the parties have created, or are bound by, another contract that runs alongside the Partnership agreement (Statement of Work or Back-to-back Agreement), parties will have to follow the change procedure of that contract as well.

This is a 'Forever template'

We will continually update this template with the frequent Microsoft updates such as CSP and other flow down terms, plus we will update the relevant terms to ensure you can claim as many rebates as possible, and get recognised by Microsoft such as CPoR, (Claims Partner of Record) DPoR (Digital Partner of Record), and PAL (Partner Admin Link).

We will also continually update this template as the law changes, for example, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the effects of Brexit on our laws, as we untangle ourselves from the European Union.
