Retained Services

There are many situations we all enter into, thinking that we would like to benefit from a business service, but an obstacle is paying for such services in one go.

A retainer agreement can help us to access services on a more affordable basis.  If we are paying for a service in large payments we may still be able to benefit from what is on offer without taking out a loan.

Retainer agreements have distinguishing features that the business requiring the service pays in advance for work to be fully specified later.

So for example it is common for a person seeking the services of a solicitor to pay a retainer fee to the solicitor, to see a case through to its conclusion, even if it is not clear how long the case will go on for, or what the eventual costs of the service will be.

As we approach our second birthday it has become apparent that some prospects would like to benefit from services, but their own stage of development can prohibit accessing our services that could require a good sized financial commitment.

GuideDotYou now offers services on a retained services basis.  You may already have identified the benefits of our services, with the only obstacle to proceeding being the amount that needs to be paid in one go.

So we now offer services where  a retainer fee can be paid on a fixed, pre-negotiated rate or on a variable hourly rate depending on the nature of the retainer and services to be provided.  The purpose of a retainer fee, which can be paid monthly or at other pre-arranged intervals, is to ensure payment for future services or work to be rendered. Retainer fees are refundable if the work which is anticipated is not ultimately performed.

So if you are considering our services, but want to think about payment methods that fit well with your own cashflow needs, please contact us.
