7.10 Additional charges will be discussed and agreed upon before the final invoice is sent (more on this topic below).

7.15 It is down to the Client to ensure we receive the information required for The Company to action the Contract requirements. In the event of a monthly contract, hours cannot be refunded or rolled over if the monthly activity has not been fulfilled.
