Terms of Engagement and fees

The costs of providing a service to my clientele, and my own remuneration, must be apportioned fairly between those who benefit from my services.

For this reason I charge an hourly rate which is calculated by dividing my total costs and remuneration by the number of hours worked during the course of the calendar year.

This hourly rate is then applied to the time taken on your affairs. The hourly rate for 2008 is £ 250, for face-to-face meetings, and £ 130.00 per hour for purely internet based advice.

Fee estimates are provided based upon an appraisal of the services to be undertaken on your behalf and such estimates are given in writing.
These charges are necessary to cover the costs of an extensive library which requires constant updating, and proessional seminars which I am obliged to attend in order to retain my qualification and provide up-to-date advice where legislation and the interpretation thereof changes constantly.
If you have a specific query then feel free to e-mail me and I will respond personally within 24 hours. Where the request is for specific advice I may respond with further questions relating to your individual circumstances before providing detailed advice, and in most circumstances a fee will be requested before a complete response is given. Such fees may be paid via my secure online credit-card service and usually vary between £ 130 and £ 195. Once I have provided the advice requested I will continue to respond to such questions as are necessary for you to completely understand that advice for the following 14 days. In the unlikely event that any dispute arises relating to my fee I reserve the absolute right to charge for all of the time spent on your affairs since the moment of the initial contact.

I reserve the absolute right not to provide information requested where it requires me to perform a potentially dishonest act, or in circumstances where the advice may assist another person in committing a dishonest act.
