Terms and Conditions

1. Financials

1.1 All prices quoted exclude VAT where applicable and are valid either for the period detailed in the quotation or for thirty days where not stated.

1.2 Prices we provide when quoting are guides based on the time we think work will take us. The process requires your cooperation in providing information, meeting deadlines and approving things when needed. Reasonable additional charges may be payable if there are variations to what has been agreed or due to unreasonable delays on your part. Though should it come to that we will always make you aware well in advance. Charges are unlikely to deviate from those quoted unless requirements change significantly.

1.3 Unless otherwise stated above or previously agreed in writing, all invoices are due within 14 days of any invoice date. Please note 2.4 in regard to notifying us of mistakes prior to payment.

1.4 Unless otherwise agreed, we will usually start work within ten working days of deposit receipt. Any anticipated completion date we provide is subject to the scope agreed and your co-operation in providing information, resources and approvals. We'll do our best to make sure that timelines are adhered to, but please be aware that circumstances, requested amendments and additional requirements can all result in delays. Timelines provided are estimates only but the we will not be held liable for project over-runs due to delays caused by you changing scope, not giving us information or approval, for any issues with third parties, or force majeure (acts of God).

1.5 If we offer an agency day rate as an alternative to a project rate, we will quote the initial estimated time-frame and will confirm any variations to this quote in person or in writing. Please note point number 1.2 above and how this could have an impact on time scales. Equally changing the brief or adding/changing requirements is likely to have an effect on the quote. You have the responsibility to confirm in writing if there is any objections to the revised quote.

1.6 Prices provided allow for occasional meetings at key stages for a reasonable length of time between us and you. Some meetings may incur additional charges for time spent, although we would always make you aware of this in advance.

2. Liabilities and Ownership

2.1 Full ownership of work will reside with Whittaker Plane Accountancy until full payment has been received, at which point we will surrender to you all claims of ownership.

2.2 We, or third parties, maintain ownership of proprietary software and programs.

2.3 You agree to indemnify Whittaker Plane Accountancy and keep us indemnified and hold us harmless from and against any claims, actions, proceedings, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses suffered or incurred in relation to work or services provided. We are not liable for any loss that may occur before, during or after the development of projects undertaken. We will not be held responsible for any delays, errors or losses arising from any third party.

2.4 You agree to alert us in writing about any defects or problems in relation to work and services provided, within 14 days of the final invoice date. We will not be liable for any claims made after this period.

3. Confidentiality and Data Protection
