The Legal  Requirements of  Life Coaching

ICF’s Ethical Guidelines

Although there are no legal requirements for practicing life coaching, ICF encourages life coaches to follow some ethical guidelines.

Swipe to know what they are.

Selecting a Business Type

Choose a business type - it could either be sole proprietorship or Limited Liability Company (LLC).

Naming & Registering the Business

Choose a business name that mirrors your brand image and register it

Registration is a must in order to open a business account and smoothen tax processes. 

Make provisions for potential risks, unforeseen events and natural calamities by getting your coaching business insured with a suitable insurance policy. 

Get Insured

Privacy policy, terms & conditions, and legal disclaimers must be part of your website, and accepted by clients while signing up for your services.

Legal Disclaimers

A client-coach legal contract is a must as well.

Client-Coach Legal Contract

This safeguards the rights of both the parties and helps keep legal hassles at arm’s length.
