This coach contract (the “Contract”) is concluded between:
MB Corporate International LP, whose registered office is located at 101 Rose Street South Lane, EH23JG, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, and is registered under number SL034026, hereinafter referred to as “MB”, party of the first part,
The undersigned natural person or legal entity, hereinafter referred to as the “Coach”, party of the second part.
MB and the Coach are hereinafter individually referred to as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”.
MB is an international e-Learning platform designed for personal, professional and financial development.
The Coach works as a coach, trainer, manager or is an expert in a particular field and wants to provide MB with training videos.
The Parties wish to mutually commit to the following:
Article 1: Purpose
The Parties agree that the purpose of this Contract is to contractually supervise training, instruction and support services for people aimed at developing specific skills in the personal, professional or financial sector. Members can access training videos on the Master Business e-learning platform (the “Platform”) provided by the Coach (the “Content”) and the remuneration for this Content is collected by MB.
Article 2: Remuneration
The Parties agree that the remuneration MB will pay the Coach for the Contracted Content will come from the monthly breakdown of all the coaches and experts who are signed up to the registered platform, amounting to 10% of the turnover from selling and renewing educational plans every month, minus a USD 49 (forty-nine US dollar) Master Business Ambassador license fee for managing and administering the MBA program tools, bank fees, taxes and any charges from producing the Content.
Each month, the Coach’s results will be calculated based on the number of people who have done the Coach’s training courses according to an algorithm and rules defined by MB, which may bring about fluctuations that the Coach accepts, and which may be modified by MB. At the start of each month, MB will email the Coach a detailed report of the results that the Coach’s training courses have generated over the previous month (the “Monthly Report”).
Once the Coach receives the Monthly Report, he/she must issue a corresponding invoice to MB. The remuneration will be paid to the Coach’s bank account on a monthly basis from the 15th of each month once the corresponding invoice has been issued and only after the training course has been on the platform for at least 30 (thirty) days.
The minimum amount for each payment made by MB is USD 149 (one hundred and forty-nine US dollars). If a monthly invoice is issued for less than USD 149, this amount will be carried over to the next monthly invoices and settled by MB when the total amount of all the invoices issued by the Coach has reached USD 149.
The Coach may negotiate with MB to be paid an advance before any content is produced, but MB is under no contractual obligation to agree to any such advance.
Article 3: Nature of the Contract
The nature of this Contract is such that the Coach is an independent contractor with regard to MB and both Parties agree that they do not and should not consider themselves to be an agent or employee of the other party. This Contract does not infer a relationship of subordination such as between an employer and an employee, an association or a joint venture.
