The way we manage our work allows us to offer you an alternative approach to billing. Because we understand what is involved with a project, we can offer you fixed fees for the majority of the work we complete.
The key benefits of this approach for you are:
- Certainty – You know and agree to the cost upfront so there are no unpleasant surprises when the bill arrives.
- Accessibility – You don’t need to be afraid to contact us, as you won’t start the clock every time you call or email. All you pay is what was agreed up front.
- Commonality – Unlike hourly billing, we don’t get paid more the longer something takes. Our interests are the same as yours – to achieve your objectives as quickly and efficiently as possible.
- No hidden extras – We don’t add any administration fees to our bills or charge for our overheads. The only additional charges we may pass on to you are those that we had to pay directly on your behalf, such as filing fees.
Please be aware that there are some types of projects where we may not be able to offer fixed fees, particularly where the process is variable and cannot be easily predicted. In those situations, we can generally break the project down into stages and provide separate fixed fees or estimates for each stage to help you stay in control of the cost.
Alternatively, we are happy to work on the basis of our usual hourly rates if you prefer. We strive to manage our costs in a way that meets your needs, so please talk to us about the options. We hope that you will be pleasantly surprised.
