VIP WEEK BOOKKEEPING CATCH-UP TERMS & CONDITIONS
Below is the engagement letter & scope of work you will be expected to sign after purchasing your VIP Week spot.
By signing this agreement, you (“Client”) agree to retain RaLea Harbrige of 406 Accounting, LLC (“Service Provider”) to proceed with a bookkeeping catch-up, packaged under VIP Week – Bookkeeping Catch-Up and agree to the terms and conditions as set forth in this Agreement.
TERMS OF SERVICE
During this intensive, Service Provider agrees to devote up to 12 hours to assignments to be determined by Client, as well as 45 minutes for a pre-intensive strategy call, 1 hour for post-intensive “fix” support, a possible secondary engagement period after the end of the contracted fiscal year, and 60 days of post-intensive email support. Work will be performed at the offices of Service Provider, but occasionally may take place at other locations, as required. Work priority and scheduling will be at the discretion of Client. Work will normally occur between the hours of 10a – 11p MT on weekdays.
This engagement will begin at the start of the Kick-off Call, as long as Client has submitted Workbook and all required documentation at least 7 days prior. Delays in submission can result in delaying or rescheduling the Kick-off Call. The engagement period ends when work is complete, approximately 1 week. The active engagement period may last longer depending on workload and scheduling but will not exceed 30 days.
If the engagement period occurs before the end of the contracted year, a secondary engagement period will be entered into after the end of the contracted year to complete bookkeeping for that year. This secondary engagement period will last no more than 30 days.
During the 60 days of post-intensive support, the Client will be able to email Service Provider with any questions or concerns about the work that was performed during the intensive, and will receive a reply via email and/or video tutorials. This support does not cover additional work that exceeds what was done during the intensive. The post-intensive support period begins after the completion of the secondary engagement period, if necessary, or after the completion of the active engagement period. If the Client has additional work that needs to be performed, Client will have the option to book another day or a half-day intensive.

If the Client wishes to reschedule beyond 90 days, the original payment may, at the Service Provider’s discretion, be applied to a new booking at the current intensive rate, which may or may not be higher than the original booking rate.
