If I have a client who is interested in bartering their goods or service for my service, how would I propose negotiations that would protect myself, my client, and my work?
The client is offering to barter the construction of a hand made guitar in exchange for a web site that I will be building alone.
Since there is no plan for cash to change hands, the value of services seems hard to quantify. How should I write out a contract that ensures proper delivery of goods and services on both ends? Also, should I take into account any taxes, even though no money is changing hands?
The entire transaction will take place in the state of New York in the US.
