These terms and conditions shall apply to all contracts entered into between us, unless varied by a document signed by a duly authorised officer.
Completion dates are forecast on the information available to me at the time and are made in good faith. However, you agree that such dates may be subject to factors beyond my control and which are not reasonably foreseeable at the beginning of The Project. You therefore agree that I shall not be responsible for any loss or damage due to any services not being completed or goods not being made available within a specified period, owing to such factors.
The fixed fee is calculated on an estimate of the total time and costs involved in completing that stage of The Project. Invoices are rendered on completion of each stage. Production costs are invoiced in addition to design fees. These commonly include photography, illustrations, typesetting, copywriting, artwork and printing and are charged together with a standard mark up. In addition, messenger and delivery charges are charged out at cost. Should The Project vary from the agreed proposal then I shall be entitled to amend any estimate or outside supplier costs and expenses. Where you cancel or postpone a part of The Project thus leading to me incurring a third party’s cancellation charge then you agree to pay this charge.
My payment terms are 30 days from the invoice date. Where a debt remains outstanding I shall, at my discretion, be entitled, whether or not the contract has been terminated and without prejudice to any other remedy, to levy interest at 4% above base rate per month from the date previously notified by you.
Prior to the commencement of each stage I shall be entitled to invoice 50% of the estimated fee for that stage. The balance of the fee for each stage can be invoiced monthly, relative to the work completed, or at the end of the stage if the stage lasts less than one month.
No property in or title to the goods which I supply shall pass to you until such time as you have paid to me, in full and unconditionally, all sums due with respect to such goods. This does not apply to photographic materials and original illustrations where ownership remains with the photographer, photographic agency or illustrator.
