ULTRA TAX LTD: TERMS & CONDITIONS

Terms and Conditions of Ultra Tax Ltd's Accountancy Services

Updated: 01/10/2023

1. Introduction

These Terms and Conditions ("Agreement") constitute the legally binding contract that governs the provision of services by Ultra Tax Ltd ("Ultra Tax," "we," or "us") to its clients ("Client" or "you"). By engaging our services, you explicitly agree to abide by the following detailed terms. If you disagree with any part of these terms, we kindly request that you refrain from using our services.

 

2. Services

Ultra Tax Ltd is a professional Accounting Firm and financial services provider, specialising in a wide range of services, including but not limited to: Personal and business Tax preparation. Comprehensive bookkeeping services. Financial consulting for individuals and businesses. VAT Returns and compliance. Efficient payroll management. PAYE Tax Rebate preparation. Sales Ledger control. Purchase Ledger control. 

3. Client Engagement

To commence an engagement with Ultra Tax Ltd, it is imperative to establish a formal engagement agreement. This agreement may be established orally or in writing and serves as the foundational document that explicitly delineates: The exact scope of services to be rendered. A transparent fee structure, specifying rates and payment terms. Specific terms and conditions that pertain directly to your unique engagement. For clients of varying legal structures, including limited companies, sole traders, or partnerships, our engagement agreements apply uniformly, subject to distinct fee structures tailored to each circumstance.

4. Tax Rebates

With respect to Tax Rebates, it is essential to note that once a rebate application is submitted to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the processing and potential delays resulting from security checks or other verification processes fall under the jurisdiction of HMRC. Ultra Tax Ltd shall not be held accountable for these delays, which are beyond our control. Our commitment, however, remains unwavering, and we shall diligently pursue your rebate in accordance with HMRC's stipulated timelines. Additionally, we pledge to keep you consistently informed of the progress throughout the process.

5. Tax Returns

Upon the collection of all requisite information and documentation necessary to initiate the process of preparing your tax returns, clients will receive a formal email disclaimer from Ultra Tax Ltd. It is of utmost importance that clients express their desire to proceed or withhold consent within 24 hours of receiving this notification. After this 24-hour period elapses, the associated fees become mandatory and must be settled within 14 days of receiving the corresponding invoice (unless we are told to not continue within the 24 hour window). Failure to adhere to this payment schedule will result in the imposition of late payment fees.

6. Limited Companies

Clients operating as limited companies are required to provide formal written acceptance, communicated via email, that clearly outlines the stipulated payment terms and details of the services they are engaging with Ultra Tax Ltd. Payment expectations for limited companies are established as a monthly payment at the commencement of each month, covering services to be provided within that month. It is essential to acknowledge that should a client fail to remit the agreed-upon payment, we are under no obligation to continue providing services for that month.

7. Invoices and Late Payment Fees

Invoices issued by Ultra Tax Ltd are subject to a 14-day payment window, in accordance with our rigorous credit control policy.

To emphasise the importance of timely payment, we have instituted a structured late payment fee system:

Instantly late: A penalty of 5% of the invoice value will be levied and added to the outstanding fees.

7 Days Late: The late payment penalty increases to 10% of the invoice value added to outstanding fees.

14 Days Late: A late payment penalty of 15% of the invoice value is added to outstanding fees.

21 Days Late: The late payment penalty escalates to 20% of the invoice value added to outstanding fees.

28 Days Late: A late payment penalty of 25% of the invoice value is added to outstanding fees.

Should the payment timeframe extend beyond four weeks, the invoice automatically falls into the next billing cycle, and fees for both months must be settled concurrently. Please be aware that we retain the right to initiate legal action to recover outstanding payments and have the discretion to terminate the client's engagement in cases of non-compliance with payment obligations.

8. Confidentiality

Ultra Tax Ltd holds a steadfast commitment to preserving the strictest confidentiality regarding all sensitive financial information shared by clients. Under no circumstances will we divulge such information to third parties without obtaining your explicit consent, unless compelled by legal requirements.
