the literal meaning of retainer is that a person being retained for some purpose by a company or industry. where as the consultant or adviser are approached when and they are needed. retainer might be retained by company mostly as a full time employer where as consultant were approached when needed. this much of meaning i can give you right now. later i will send necessar rulings if possible. thank u.
