5.3 Invoicing and Payment timeframes:
For services completed by The CEO Within LLC, there are generally two types of services:
- Pre-Paid Services
- Post-Paid Services
5.3 (a) Pre-Paid Services Policies and Terms.
Clients will be required to pre-pay for work to be completed unless otherwise specified in the estimate or contract, For large projects, a payment schedule to pay for work in phases may be agreed upon and will be specified and agreed upon in writing in the estimate or contract to prior to the start of the project.
Once an estimate or contract is signed, an invoice will be sent for payment for any pre-payment portions required.
For project-based work, we do not start work until any pre-payment amounts are paid.
Many estimates include a flat rate for the project within its specified terms, plus an additional hourly rate based on work requested during the project cycle outside of scope. Invoices for these unanticipated expenses will be invoiced under our Post-Paid Work policies and terms, as specified below, unless otherwise specified in the estimate or contract terns.
5.3 (b) Post-Paid Work Policies and Terms
Post-Paid Work is invoiced on a semi-monthly basis. Invoices are generally issued on the 20th for work completed between the 1st and 15th, and on the 5th, for work completed between the 16th and 31st of the prior month.
For post-paid work, while we understand there may be many reasons for payments to not be paid on time, by signing the estimate or contract, you agree to your understanding that unless otherwise agreed in separately in writing, after a 7-day grace period form the date the invoice is issued, late payments accrue interest at a rate of 10% per month on invoices, and no new work will be conducted until past-due payments are collected in full.
5.4 Nonpayment and work performance: Work performed is the property of The CEO Within until Client has paid their invoices in full. If the Client is past-due on payment of invoices, The CEO Within may refuse to do additional work and may withhold completed work that has not been paid for, until payments are brought to current. This action shall not constitute either a breach of contract or termination of contract. While we hate to hold up forward progress waiting on payment, as a small business, we rely on your timely payment to pay our own bills and appreciate your thoughtfulness in honoring our agreed-upon payment schedule.
If you have a concern that you may not be able to pay a future bill, please provide as much advance notice as possible. Payment arrangements may be possible, such as splitting a larger project into two smaller projects so that you can pay for the first half which has already been completed and received that finished work, while we pause on completing the balance of the requested work until you are able to pay. This is an example of a payment arrangement that can be made with additional forethought, that would limit the additional liability and cost for either of us without significant undue burden upon either party.
