When it comes to business, clarity is key. This is especially true when it comes to agreements between parties. A cost agreement is a document that outlines the terms of service for a particular project or business agreement, including all estimated costs and fees. Cost agreements are used to ensure that everyone involved is on the same page and that there are no misunderstandings about what is expected and what is to be delivered.

To help you create a comprehensive cost agreement, we`ve provided an example below:
