As part of the requirements of our Institute and for your peace of mind, we issue Letters of Engagement for all the work we undertake on your behalf.

Full details of all the responsibilities for every service we provide, both yours & ours, will be included with the Engagement Letter, along with our standard Terms & Conditions.

Any work outside the scope of the Engagement Letter will become chargeable ONLY IF you have agreed to it in advance.                                                                                                       

The basis of charging any additional fees will, wherever possible and practicable, be by way of a Fixed Price Agreement.                                                                                               

In the absence of that an hourly rate will apply, and under some circumstances (urgent or contentious work) a premium shall apply.
