The Contract is dated January 23, 2023.


1.1 Project.

1.2 Schedule. The Coach will begin work on February 1, 2023 and will continue until the work is completed. This Contract can be ended by either Client or Coach at any time, pursuant to the terms of Section 4, Term and Termination.

3.1 Overview. This section contains important promises between the parties.

3.2 Authority To Sign. Each party promises to the other party that it has the authority to enter into this Contract and to perform all of its obligations under this Contract.

3.3 Coach Has Right To Give Client Work Product. The Coach promises that it owns the work product, that the Coach is able to give the work product to the Client, and that no other party will claim that it owns the work product. If the Coach uses employees or subcontractors, the Coach also promises that these employees and subcontractors have signed contracts with the Coach giving the Coach any rights that the employees or subcontractors have related to the Coach's background IP and work product.

3.4 Coach Will Comply With Laws. The Coach promises that the manner it does this job, its work product, and any background IP it uses comply with applicable U.S. and foreign laws and regulations.

3.5 Work Product Does Not Infringe. The Coach promises that its work product does not and will not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights, that the Coach has the right to let the Client use the background IP, and that this Contract does not and will not violate any contract that the Coach has entered into or will enter into with someone else.

3.7 Client-Supplied Material Does Not Infringe. If the Client provides the Coach with material to incorporate into the work product, the Client promises that this material does not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights.


This Contract is ongoing until it expires or the work is completed. Either party may end this Contract for any reason by sending an email or letter to the other party, informing the recipient that the sender is ending the Contract and that the Contract will end in 7 days. The Contract officially ends once that time has passed. The party that is ending the Contract must provide notice by taking the steps explained in Section 9.4.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

What to include in the Mobile app development quotation

A quotation is your opportunity to showcase professionalism, offer services at the right price, and portray the value for money of your services. You can tick all these boxes by adding the right sections. 

Consider adding terms, conditions, and pricing of your mobile app development services to the quote. To create a clear and concise quote, understand the clients’ preferred platform, features, timeline, and budget before drafting your quote.

Don’t forget to create a legally binding mobile design contract before starting the application development work. Although a signed quotation could be enough to hold you and the client to terms, you ideally want a contract.

Whether you’re going for android app development or iOS app development, here’s what to add to make your quote truly appealing.


An impressive summary briefly covers the entire quotation in a digestible chunk. Think of this as the cover page that hooks your client at hello. Use this section to mention important points that they’ll find more detail on further into the quote.

Scope of work

Scope of work specifies the groundwork for an app development project. This section should summarise key details like:

  • Project tasks
  • Payment terms
  • Project outcomes
  • Deliverables 

A well-defined scope of work helps a developer and a client have clear expectations on  the project and meet on the same page. Scope of work statements also help freelancers to protect themselves in case of scope creep—when a client requests more of your work yet is not willing to pay for it, and presumes it’s part of your pre-agreed services.

Project details

Before you go on to develop an app, you want to offer a complete picture of the project. Project details show the client your grasp of the project. This is where you’ll need to add key project details, necessary background information, potential problems, requirements, needed analysis, and a conclusion. 

For example, if a company is developing an eCommerce mobile application, you’ll need to know about the expected traffic load for creating and maintaining the app’s servers. The more you know about the background of a project, the better you’ll be equipped to handle the project and deliver an app that delivers for your clients.

Company overview

The company overview  is where you’ll provide your potential client with background information about yourself and your company. App developers should use this section to talk about:

  • Services: that they offer to clients
  • Strengths: that distinguish them from other app developers
  • Track record: of working on other notable mobile applications
  • Target market: that they prefer to work in
  • Team: that they work with and will be a familiar face for the client
  • Mission and vision: on why the company started, and where it’s going 

Project objectives

In this chapter you’ll need to state the aim of a project. Use this section to specify the motivation behind the project. 

Before you write these objectives, don’t forget to take inputs from your prospective client. They can help you to understand the tangible and measurable goals that you should use to gauge project success. 

Consider using the SMART framework for your project objectives:

  • Specific: so you know what you’re running after
  • Measurable: to make project objectives quantifiable
  • Achievable: for identifying steps to accomplishing the client’s objective
  • Realistic: to ensure that the goal is practical and attainable
  • Time-bound: to specify the timeline by which you should achieve the end result

Project deliverables

Project deliverables refer to the output elements you’ll be delivering at the end of your project or contract. It’s a good idea to create a project delivery schedule along with a work breakdown structure to help you plan this a little better. 

To understand and identify the right set of deliverables, you need to ask the right questions. 

For example, consider asking questions like:

  • What’s the reason for developing this app?
  • What’s the end goal of this app?
  • How much time and resources will you have to complete this project?
  • How will the client evaluate project success?
  • Will you have to develop both the UX and user interface of the mobile app?
  • What’ll be your contribution to branding the app? 
  • Will you work with the client's internal team during the development phase?

Understanding these questions will help you to identify key performance indicators (KPIs) and work towards achieving those key goals to keep your client happy and your work successful.

Project milestones

Once you have your deliverables set, you need to set the milestones for the entire process. These milestones will help you to monitor tasks, stay on track, and show key event dates the client will need to be available for. 

For example, some key project milestones to consider are:

  • Project start and end dates
  • Key delivery dates
  • Client approval dates
  • Important meeting and presentation dates
  • Key outages that may cause delays
  • Payment dates

Project fees

In this section you’ll need to cover project costs for completing your application development contract. Use this section to clarify the cost of your services along with the cost of different milestones and resources you’ll need access to. 

You can also break down the project fee into multiple categories, based on the project needs. For example, if a client wants you to develop and host an application, you can specify the proposed cost for different items in the mobile app development process: 

  • Application development
  • App hosting
  • Fixing bugs
  • Annual maintenance
  • Ongoing support for existing digital platforms

Bonsai top tip: Don’t forget to add your payment schedule, preferred mode of payment, and late fees in this section.

Terms and conditions

This chapter mentions standard terms and conditions for both parties to agree and follow during the project. 

For example, you can include project acceptance criteria, payment conditions, and obligations of both parties in this section. 

You can present these terms and conditions in more detail in your mobile app development contract.

How to Write a Mobile App Development Quotation

Understanding what to add to your mobile proposal is half of the job. To make your quotation truly appealing and land a gig, you’ll need to master the art of writing a quote. 

Here are some simple rules to follow for writing an effective quotation:

Find out exactly what the client wants

A prospective app development client isn’t just looking for a project proposal document from app developers. They are in search of qualified mobile app proposal from app developers who have: 

  1. A solid understanding of the software development process
  2. Have the know-how of the latest app development technology
  3. Have worked on similar projects and can deliver the project at hand on time
  4. Have a good knowledge of the client’s target user base

Decoding the client’s expectations is key to creating a convincing proposal. It’s super important to research and talk to your client as much as you can early on in the process. 

If a client is hiring you for a developing a mobile app, it’s best to start by understanding:

  • The idea: to find the reason behind the app
  • Target audience: to understand who will be using the app
  • Deadline: by when you must deliver the final app
  • Dependencies: risks and outside dependencies that you’ll have to deal with during the project
  • Budget: to understand if the proposed payment meets your expectations
  • Key stakeholders: to understand whom you will be talking to for approvals on ideation, app build, prototyping, testing, and release
  • Business objectives: to help you understand what core features are needed for the end-user
  • Competition: to gauge what’s already available to the market and study their applications
  • Number of releases: to know if you’ll have to produce multiple versions of an app

Once you have a better understanding of these questions, you can use a proposal template to convince potential clients that you’re just the freelancer for the job. 

Highlight what sets you apart 

If you’ve come this far, you’ve already done the heavy lifting.  Now it’s time to show the value for money of your services. Consider showcasing your commitment, skills, and can-do attitude to nudge your potential client toward saying yes.

Bonsai top tip: Don’t forget to include previous work you’ve completed to back up your claims.

Add a CTA

After having put so much effort into creating a quotation, you’ll need to let your reader know what’s next in the proposal process? Clearly map out next steps. Do you want clients to get on a call or sign on the dotted line?
