The following charges apply whether requested verbally or in writing:
Any work carried out on behalf of the client by personnel of Artlines or Artlines Media Ltd will be charged at the standard rate at the time the work is undertaken unless agreed otherwise, in writing, by a Director. Amongst others, this includes onsite visits, writing specifications and general advice/consultancy both verbal and written.
Once an agreement is entered into by a new client, 20% of the agreed price is payable at the start of the project, with the final 80% payable on 14 days from delivery of the finished product. Artlines or Artlines Media Ltd may vary this payment structure subject to prior notification.
Existing clients will be required to pay on strictly 28 days from date of completion of the project. Where projects totals exceed £2500 a payment structure will be agreed and adhered to.
Lead times and project start and completion dates, will only be valid from receipt of all relevant material from the client. If delays in design occur due to incomplete information from the client a part invoice can be issued to cover time and work to date.
All projects charges will be subject to VAT at the current rate.

The company reserves the right to implement charges (including interest charges) on accounts outstanding beyond the due date. The rate of interest charged shall be 2.5% per month, or part thereof from the due date until the date payment is received.
If you are exempt from any charges e.g VAT due to Charitable or National status this must be declared prior to project completion. Invoices will be addressed to the agreed party, the named party shall remain liable for all charges.
