  • Required to fix mistakes at own cost

    To meet the third condition of the results test, you must be required to fix mistakes at your own cost or pay someone else to fix them, at any time during or after the contract.

    If you can invoice for the hours spent to fix defects in your work, you do not meet this condition.


    Dave is a software specialist who provides services through his company DaveCo. DaveCo has contracted with a large firm. DaveCo's contract doesn't specify whether he is personally responsible for correcting his mistakes.

    In practice, Dave invoices for fixing any mistakes he makes. Therefore, DaveCo does not meet the third condition of the results test.
