  • The arrangements that apply during our assignments, including scope, timing and agreed deliverables, are set out in a proposal or equivalent letter of confirmation to ensure that each party's obligations and responsibilities, including any risks or key assumptions, are explicit, mutually understood and agreed.


  • We charge fees at rates agreed for each client assignment. These fees are stated net of relevant local taxes and are due and payable within 15 days of commencing the assignment. We do not work on commission or on a contingent basis.


  • Separate from our fees, we are also entitled to charge travel, accommodation, subsistence and other expenditure necessarily incurred in carrying out our assignments. Such costs, and the fact that they are likely to be incurred, are agreed with the client beforehand. We will only charge travelling expenses for services delivered outside the Greater London area.


  • We do not charge for time spent travelling within the Greater London area, or for additional hours worked beyond our standard 8 hour day; nor do we charge for overtime hours worked above a standard day. We will be reimbursed for travelling time that exceeds 4 hours to or from the client’s site, at rates agreed in our engagement letter.  


  • We will be reimbursed for the cost of economy air travel within 3 hours’ flying time from London and business class travel for flights longer than 3 hours from London.  The cost of first class rail travel will be reimbursed outside Greater London. Car mileage will be reimbursed at a rate of GBP 0.63 per mile, or equivalent per kilometre in other currencies.


  • We will submit invoices in accordance with client engagement agreements signed at the start of an assignment. All invoices are subject to VAT or other local taxes at the prevailing rate. Terms of settlement are set out in the invoice.


  • We prefer to invoice clients in pounds sterling. When clients require us to invoice them in other currencies, we will notify them before invoicing of the currency conversation rate which shall include bank charges or other costs of conversion from the other currency into pounds sterling.


  • Unless advised otherwise, all work will be carried out by the partners or associates of AGM Transitions. If an assignment requires additional resources, we will agree potential individuals with the client beforehand to ensure no compromise on delivery quality.


  • We pay our suppliers and associates within the time specified in their own terms and conditions of business, or as varied by mutual agreement.
