I will provide you with the relevant brochure (business, registered charity, church minister) which gives gives my current rates and describes the way I work.
We will both sign a simple agreement before work commences, which includes a confidentiality clause and details my regular hours of business.
The first month of work will be on a trial basis, to be confirmed by both parties. Thereafter one month’s notice is to be given on either side.
I use time-tracking software to produce invoices and reports. Payment terms are settlement by bank transfer within 14 days of invoice receipt.
Any agreed expenses will be added to the next invoice.
Any services provided by a third party will require payment in full at the time of the service. This includes (but is not limited to) travel bookings, print production, large copying projects and catering.
I work on a consultative basis with a number of clients, therefore urgent work requires as much notice as possible although I am always happy to be flexible as circumstances allow.
DISCLAIMER: You will be responsible for the final checking and proof-reading of documents produced on your behalf.
