Our terms and conditions for doing business with our clients are as follows:
As a service provider we charge clients for our time, and we re-charge for any items or services that we purchase while working on their behalf.
The work we do is either ongoing under contract, for an agreed term within an agreed budget, or for a specific job for which a price is agreed in advance and contracted accordingly. Our contracts for ongoing work contain provision for increasing or decreasing the amount of work being carried out, if a client wishes this to happen, with a corresponding and agreed adjustment in our fees.
Typically such circumstances arise on an opportunistic basis (which will invariably raise the fee level) or as result of a change of circumstance that limits the amount or likely effectiveness of our work (which will invariably reduce our fee level). We are critically aware that it is our clients’ budgets that we are spending, and we always discuss prospective changes in activity levels before effecting any such changes, to ensure that our clients remain fully in control of their spending.
For ongoing work we invoice our fees monthly in advance, with 30-day payment terms. For specific/one-off jobs estimated to take no more than one month to complete, we invoice 50% of the agreed fee in advance to be paid immediately, and the balance on completion, again to be paid immediately. For specific/one-off jobs estimated to take more than one month to complete, we invoice the commensurate proportion monthly on the same basis (50% to be paid immediately, and the balance at the end of the month).
When we purchase items or services on behalf of a client, the client is offered the option of paying the provider directly and in accordance with the provider’s own terms and conditions, or we will re-charge the amount by invoicing the client with a 5% mark-up applied, which recompenses us for administering and carrying the debt.
For our training events we often buy in the services of journalists and other experts. We have built up long-standing relationships with many of these individuals and they often turn down other jobs to work for us. If a client cancels any of our courses within seven days of their scheduled start, we reserve the right to make a cancellation charge that will cover such expenses.
