Standard Terms and Conditions
Description of Services
SMM Strategic Marketing Montreal (“SMM”) provides consultancy services to any client (“the Company”) according to an agreed Project Mandate, signed by both parties and specifying the fee basis for such services. Additional work to meet changed specifications at any stage of the consultancy program, or to satisfy demands for further consultancy will be defined by a new or modified Project Mandate. Such new or modified Project Mandate will be signed by both parties and will specify the fee basis for such services.
SMM agrees that any information received which concerns the intellectual property, the financial status or other affairs of the Company will be treated in full confidence and will not be revealed to any other persons, firms or organizations.
Terms of Payment
Consultancy fees are charged as set out in the Project Mandate. If necessary and when a budget has been agreed for these, office expenses and travel expenses are charged as incurred . If automobile travel to other locations than the Company’s facilities are required, then automobile expenses are charged at the rate of 35 cents per km under an agreed budget.
An initial deposit equivalent to 5 hours of consultancy time at the standard fee rate or the total fee, whichever is the lesser, is required on the signing of the Project Mandate. Services will be billed at agreed rates every two weeks, with the initial deposit serving as a prepayment for services. Invoices are due for payment on receipt by the client. Payment can be made by direct deposit, banker’s draft or by cheque. If the client prefers, invoicing can be done via PayPal.
Termination of the Project Mandate
If the Company asks that work on the consultancy project be stopped in writing, either on a temporary or on a permanent basis, charges will be determined to the moment of stoppage and billed immediately. Either party may cancel this Project Mandate on thirty (30) days notice to the other party in writing, by certified mail or personal delivery.
