Overview of our Terms

The rates, terms, and conditions that naked Agility Ltd. are proud to operate by…

Thanks for choosing naked Agility Ltd. Our mission is to delight our customers with our knowledge, expertise, and professionalism in delivering onsite consulting and training. Our private consulting and training is provided online using Microsoft Teams and Mural and are governed by our consulting Terms of Business described here. Onsite it is also available at an additional cost.

If you are looking for our approach to engaging then please see  https://nkdagility.com/#our-services

NOTE: Due to the volatility of the GBP, all invoices will be in EUR or USD unless otherwise agreed.

Try before you buy. We are so confident that you will want to retain our consulting services that our initial first-day consultation rate will only be charged if you retain our services. Minimizing your risk is very important to us, so for all virtual engagements (and in-person engagements greater than 5 days), we allow you to cancel after the first day if you feel we are incompatible with your organization. We can call it quits at that point, and only T&E would be due.

Prices are variable based on the commitment length and agreements around travel, expenses, & training. They are for illustrative purposes only and are valid through June 30 of the current financial year.

TLDR; 

  • Rates – All rates are subject to commercial considerations and are exclusive of Travel, Expenses, & local Tax if applicable.
  • Long engagements – 2.5% drop after six months and 5% after 12 months.
  • Onsite Fee – An additional fee is charged for Onsite Consulting and Training. This is calculated based on the number of expected travel days and is charged at the prevailing consulting or training rate.
  • IP – All rates exclude IP ownership for software, documentation, and materials.
  • IR-35 (UK Only) – We do not operate under IR-35. Commercial policies that may put us at risk of IR-35 will have an additional fee of 40%.
  • Per Student Training – Additional per-student costs apply depending on the training.
  • Purchasing Power – To be fair to all regions, we offer discounted rates to secondary and tertiary.

Pre-Paid Consulting

We understand that sometimes our customers need shorter-term help. To support this we offer pre-paid hours in blocks of 7 (at the standard consulting rate above) that can be purchased by the customer. We will add a credit to your account that can be used by contacting naked Agility Ltd and scheduling remote time with one of our consultants. We will always endeavour to respond quickly; however, as we may be on-site with other customers, we may not be able to schedule soon.

Pre-paid consulting of 40h or less is due in advance.

Naked Agility Ltd. Consulting Terms of Business

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

Invoicing, Expenses, & Cancelation

Invoicing

naked Agility Ltd will submit electronic invoices exclusive of tax upon completion of the engagement or monthly, whichever comes first.

Note: In the UK, VAT applies to all invoices automatically.

Unless agreed upon upfront all invoices are issued exclusive of local taxes and any additional tax burden is on the payees alone. If there is Tax that is required to be represented on your invoice for legal purposes please let us know so we can add it for you. An updated invoice will be sent that includes any withholdings required by your local tax office.

Unless otherwise agreed, all invoices are payable within fourteen (14) days of receipt (NET14). naked Agility Ltd reserves the right to charge interest at 8%* above bank base rate on overdue accounts.

This figure will reflect UK Government guidelines for Late commercial payments: charging interest and debt recovery.

Travel & Expenses (T&E)

If travel is required, naked Agility Ltd will invoice travel & expenses upon completion of the engagement or monthly, whichever comes first. Associated travel and costs for each onsite week will be invoiced as actual expenses for air, lodging, and ground transportation. Per diem will be billed at 35 GBP per day or actual expenses.

naked Agility Ltd will endeavour to minimise the cost of travel and expenses where possible however, our consultants have families and do expect to be home at the weekend. This is, however sometimes not possible or counterproductive. We are based in Scotland and engagements outside Europe will generally require that consultants do not travel home at the weekend.

note It may be more cost-effective for the customer to book travel and accommodation.
