AusVet provides services on an hourly or daily basis or at an agreed fee for a clearly defined project. For projects of less than one day, charges are based on an hourly rate with a minimum of 1 hour charged. For projects of one day or more duration, charging will be at a daily rate with a minimum of 1 day charged.
For short to medium term projects, AusVet suggests 50% of the agreed charges be paid at the time of appointment. A further 30% will be charged on submission of a draft final report and the remaining 20% on presentation of the final report. For long term contracts, clients are invoiced at agreed intervals.
Fees are charged for professional time and support services against the agreed budget. Additional expenses such as travel and other operating costs are itemised and charged separately.
Terms of payment are 30 days from receipt of invoice.
