A South Dakota Subcontractor Agreement is a legal document outlining the relationship between a contractor and a subcontractor. The contractor has an established contract with a client for work on real property.
A subcontractor agreement documents the portion of the job a subcontractor performs for the general contract, for instance, the electrical wiring of a residential home.
A subcontractor agreement may be necessary to complete a range of specialized work like plumbing, roofing, and pool building.
The subcontractor agreement specifies the scope of the subcontractor’s work, when work is due, how much the contractor will pay the subcontractor, and other details like insurance requirements.
How do I become a contractor in South Dakota?
South Dakota leaves most licensing tasks up to local jurisdictions. The only contractors required to carry state-issued licenses are electricians and plumbers. Everyone else works with their local city or county.
However, all contractors engaged in construction services must register for a South Dakota Contractor’s Tax License with the Department of Revenue.
