  • General Terms and Conditions of Engagement

    (current as of August 28, 2019)
    IntroductionIt is Aumfos LLC’s ("Aumfos") practice to set out the scope and terms of our engagement for a client at the start of our relationship. Accordingly, we have prepared this document to explain the general terms and conditions that will apply to our work and are incorporated into all of our engagement agreements. A description of the scope of our representation is set out in a separate engagement letter. Please read these terms and conditions carefully. We want you to be aware in advance of our customary fee charges, how we calculate our hourly fees, our billing practices, and our payment terms.
    Hourly RatesWe do not favor charging for our services on an hourly basis, but often it is the fairest and most practical basis for billing a matter. Most of our work will be quoted as a monthly or flat rate. That said, we are open to businesslike proposals for alternatives to hourly billing and will be happy to work with you to craft a fee arrangement tailored to your needs. Feel free at any time to ask for an estimate of our fees on a project or to ask us to agree to a fixed fee arrangement. If you and the firm have agreed to another basis for billing other than an hourly one, that arrangement will be set forth in writing in a separate engagement agreement countersigned by you.
    Travel TimeWe want to highlight how we charge for travel time should that ever be necessary. When we travel on client business during normal business hours (8:30 am – 6:00 pm), we charge normal hourly rates, unless there is an opportunity to do work for other clients or other non-billable work. We do not bill for any time that is billed to other clients or during which we are engaged in non-client work. When we travel on client business outside normal business hours, we charge one-half of our normal hourly rates. Travel time outside normal business hours is shown separately on all bills.
    Direct and Indirect ExpensesThe Growth Services that Aumfos provides will incur direct out-of-pocket expenses in connection with our work. Most often, the provision of Growth Services also requires the coordination, subcontracting and management of work provided by third party vendors, which we refer to as indirect expense. These direct and indirect expenses are usually incorporated into the fees charged as a flat-fee retainer, but at the client's option, may be billed on a pass through basis, with a small mark up to reflect administrative time associated with procurement, billing and payment. These costs are in addition to our fees for services rendered.
     
    Retainers & Advanced FeesGenerally we do not require retainers or advanced fee payments. We may require you to advance any substantial out-of-pocket costs. However, any fees or expenses advanced to us are described in a separate engagement agreement. Any money advanced to us is kept in anescrow account that we maintain for this purpose.
    BillingOn hourly fee matters, we give an effective hourly rate indication on the bill. We generally do not indicate the time associated with each entry. We do not have a minimum billing unit, such as a quarter of an hour. We bill only for the time spent on your matters, to the minute or part thereof. The bill will also show any amounts deposited in our escrow account that are applied to the fees and expenses shown on that bill. We generally bill clients when work is finished. For hourly work or work done under a separate engagement agreement, the agreement will specify how the client will be billed.
    PaymentWe email invoices. Originals can be provided upon request. Our invoices are due upon receipt. The expected payment date is listed on the invoice, which is usually 30 days after invoice date. We expect timely payment of our invoices unless arrangements have been made ahead of time for less prompt or partial payments.
    Late Payment/Non-PaymentIf an invoice is not paid within the payment terms described above, we may charge a late fee of $25 and interest on the balance owed to us at an annual rate of six percent (6%). Invoices that remain unpaid after sixty (60) days will be subject to monthly late charges and interest until fully paid. At our option, we may waive late payment charges and interest on any invoice that is paid before the close of the next billing cycle after it reaches sixty days overdue. 
    Withdrawal of ServicesIf an invoice is not paid in full with interest and late charges within seventy-five (75) days, Aumfos may, upon notice to you, terminate its services. We will do our best to make sure that your interests are not compromised, but will move quickly to withdraw our services.
    Suits for FeesIn the highly unlikely event that the Aumfos has to bring a lawsuit to collect any amounts due, you will be responsible for court costs and the firm’s reasonable attorneys’ fees involved in- collecting the amounts due. We are confident that this situation will not arise; however, wewant you to have this notice and understand Aumfos' policy in the unlikely event it becomes relevant.
    Declining ServicesIf you do not agree to any of these general terms and conditions, you must advise us as soon as possible so that we can discuss mutually acceptable alternatives. If wend will work with you to transfer your accounts, data and documents. You are free at any time to discharge us. If you do so, we will render an invoice immediately for any unpaid fees and expenses, and cooperate with you to transfer your accounts, data and documents.
