How to pay me:

I will usually issue an invoice, which must clear into my account within 30 days.  For larger projects I might split my invoice so that I receive part payment at the beginning, middle and end of the project - but we will agree this in advance.

Late payment

Please do pay me on time -  a late payment might be the difference between me affording to paying my bills or not.  I realise that, sometimes, things go wrong so please do contact me asap if there is a problem.  Where a client payment is significantly late, or I have encountered problems with being able to communicate with a client over a late payment, then I do have a late payment policy.  This can be viewed by clicking on the link under 'Cancellations and postponements/late payments' below.
