When you have a client you should have them fill out a client information form. The forms differ greatly from the simple to the more complicated depending on the legal requirements of where you live. It is important to check so that you avoid any legal ramifications if the need arises. I have several copies here that i have downloaded from the internet to give you some examples of the differences.
