Invoiceable costs are one-time costs that are billed prior to work. These include the cost of purchasing necessary software, as well as the cost of all services provided (including design, development, system administration, and training).
The client is responsible for any recurring costs directly related to the operation of their web site and services. This includes server fees, domain name re-registration. If software specified in the Invoiceable Costs section includes recurring licensing fees, then the client is responsible for the cost of renewal, even if the initial purchase was covered in the initial invoice (in these cases, we’ll usually figure something out to make billing as easy as possible).
The client is responsible for the cost of incidental software upgrades (if they choose to upgrade their software).
A lot of the time, issues don’t become apparent until after a project is finished. After care is a way to respond to issues that happen within the near lifetime of the project, and also as a way for a client to request small tweaks and additions that they might not even have known they wanted until after the project was finished.
After care includes things like server administration, small amounts of additional development, bug fixes, editing content or adding additional content to a site. For example, setting up an additional email address, or changing the timings for an auto-responder series.
Creating new content, or administering content on a site does not fall under after care and must be paid for as a separate service (see ‘Content Management’ below).
Should the length of time required to perform a single action be estimated at greater than 10 hours, it is considered a new project, and will go through a new consulting/proposal/billing cycle For example, asking for new site functionality.
All new projects that are costed above £900 include 3 hours of aftercare gratis, after which it is invoiced in advance of use in 3 hour blocks (at a cost of £120). There is no expiry for use of purchased hours, and the hours are transferable between projects so long as the client does not change.
After care hours are not transferable between clients.
Most requests that fall under after care are usually handled inside of two business days, depending on the complexity of the task.
Work will commence after receipt of payment.
A specific time line for delivery will be finalised after payment of the invoice. The number of days required for the project will be finalised before payment.
The design stage will be finalised before the development stage is started.
The actual date of delivery may be pushed back in mitigating circumstances, or in cases where work is delayed when waiting for design approval, etc. but this will not change the number of days required for the project (for the purposes of cancellations).
Scope of Work
Once work on this proposal has started, the scope of the project may not be changed. No new requirements or goals may be added after that time.
Additional requirements that are introduced after the initiation of the project (that cannot be provided for by after care) must be treated as new projects.
After payment, the client may choose to stop work on a project, with the following conditions:
- the cost of software purchased for any projects is not refundable.
- after the cost of purchased software has been removed from the invoice amount, a further %20 of the invoice will be deemed non-refundable.
- of the remainder of the invoiced amount, the client will be refunded pro-rata for unused hours. This is calculated as follows:
- For the number of days that are projected for the project, each day will be divided into 8 hours. The invoiced amount (minus the cost of software and minus the additional non-refundable 20%) will be divided by the total number of project hours.
- The number of hours already worked on the project will be subtracted from that amount.
Client A pays for a project that is worth £10,000. This project contains £2000 worth of associated software costs. The project is scoped as requiring 15 days of work. After one week (and 40 logged hours of work time), client A decides to cancel work on the project.
First, of the £10,000 that was paid, 2000 are subtracted to cover software costs. This leaves £8000. Of the £8000, %20 is kept as non-refundable. This leaves £6400.
The total estimated project hours are calculated as follows:
15 days * 8 hours = 120 hours
The cost of each hour is therefore costed at:
£6400 / 120 hours = £53 per hour (rounded down)
Given that 40 hours had already been worked when Client A chose to cancel the agreement, the total number of refundable hours are:
120 hours – 40 hours = 80 hours
Therefore, Client A would be refunded a total of:
80 hours * £53 = £4240 refunded minus bank fees
We offer additional training which takes place over Skype, and covers the use of the systems that were created for each project.
Training hours can be purchased at a rate of £50 per hour.
A content management service can be provided on request. This service is intended to cover larger administrative tasks, such as editing content for a website, writing emails, or setting up videos for streaming, etc.
Work can be purchased in 10 hour blocks at a cost of £40 per hour (total £400), in which case they will be used in the same fashion as after care.
Work can also be purchased on an hour by hour basis at £50 per hour.
Although we are happy to help a client with content, in almost all cases it is recommended that if a client is regularly purchasing content management as a service, they investigate hiring staff (training can be provided as outlined above, and if large blocks of training are required, discounts can be negotiated).

Our Physical Goods refund and returns policy
“Our returns and refunds policy is in accordance with the EU Distance Selling Directive which came into force in October 2000 and is part of UK law under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. This law applies to all transactions within the UK where a consumer does not meet the seller. Contracts between businesses are not governed by these regulations.
Consumers have the option to change their mind and cancel order between the time of placing it and 7 working days starting from the day after delivery. Cancellation must be made either in writing by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
Once you have cancelled the contract, you have a legal “duty of care” to take good care of the goods and return them to us at your expense. Duty of care would include not opening the packaging of the product. In accordance with the Distance Selling Regulations we will refund you the full amount paid for the goods within 30 days of receipt of the notice of cancellation.”

However, in the event that a special order item is found to be faulty please contact us either by telephone, email or post. We may then offer you an exchange or a monetary refund dependant on the nature of the problem. Original delivery costs will be refunded only if the item is faulty, damaged in delivery or if it differs in any way
from the advertised goods. Returned parcels remain the responsibility of the customer until safely received by us. The company does not pay ‘return’ carriage unless an item is faulty, or it differs in any way from the advertised goods.”
