Many business transactions require a printable business agreement template to guide the written agreement between the parties involved so as to clearly lay down the terms of business and avoid any misunderstanding that could lead to later disputes. A business agreement lays down the specifics, financial obligations and various other essential information that makes the agreement binding. By having an agreement both sides agree to perform the way it was agreed.

Business agreements are often of use to independent entrepreneurs and contractors, home based businesses and others. Other uses of a business agreement could be in purchasing or giving a service or goods, leasing and real estate, selling a business, joint ventures and partnerships, non-competition agreements, confidentiality agreements and franchising. The agreement is legally binding on the parties involved. For the agreement to be valid, an offer needs to be made and accepted. The best way to create an agreement, void of any discrepancy is to verbally negotiate the terms and conditions beforehand.
