Where we undertake work at your instruction, we will fee you for the time cost involved at our standard charge rates, unless other fee rates have been agreed. All invoices are due within 30 days of invoice date and we reserve the right to charge interest on all unpaid invoices, from the date of the invoice, at the prevailing statutory rates (which are currently 8% above base).

Returned cheques and standing orders will incur a charge equal to the bank charges we incur, plus 25 to reflect our time cost in dealing with the matter.

If our fees remain overdue, we may ask for payment in advance before we undertake any work, or we may significantly increase our fees to compensate us for the delay, time and costs incurred in chasing unpaid bills.
