  • For new retainer clients and fixed-fee project clients, 50% of the cost of the first invoice is due before commencement of your services, with the remaining 50% charged either on the 28th day of the month (for retainer clients) or on completion of your project (for fixed-fee project work). Thereafter, the whole retainer fee is due on the 28th day of each month.

Any work specifically required outside of these times may be subject to an uplift fee.
  • Any changes to your original scope of work, e.g. increased completion time or complexity, etc. will require further consultation as soon as is practicably possible as it may be necessary to amend your fee in order to reflect any changes.
