These Terms of Business supersede any other.
1. Payment Terms: The below payment terms are based on my current 30 day payment period.
A late payment fee – Invoices unpaid after 30 days will incur a fixed charge of £40, £70 or £100 depending on the size of the invoice (under £1,000, under £10,000, and higher), plus interest at 8% over the Bank of England base rate. This is in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2008.
2. Invoicing cycle: when working on a retained project, invoices will be issued on or around the 30th of each month for the work of the previous month. I reserve the right to invoice for 50% of the project upfront should the monthly value exceed £1,000.
For one-off projects an invoice will be sent immediately upon completion.
