supported and supported-plus
One of the main jewels in the candid crown is our set of dead simple, plain English commercial contracts. The benefits to you of getting away from all that “wherefore art thou, notwithstanding anything hereinbefore” nonsense are real:
You know what you’re getting into
So does the organisation you’re dealing with
Negotiation is kept to a minimum and doesn’t need expensive legal input – saving time and money all round
Because everybody is clear on what they must and must not do, they are more likely to deliver and comply
People without a commercial or legal background can be given contract management responsibilities – keeping contract ownership closer to the coalface
If something does go wrong, or a question arises, it’s much easier to resolve without calling in the expensive lawyers
Because many of the above benefits also benefit the people you’re dealing with, you can build better relationships with them
Put simply, plain English contracts empower you.
The Supported package gives you unlimited access to our very special set of contracts (which we’re regularly adding to and updating), to use as many times as you like for the duration of the package.
You also have full access to the supporting guidance which helps you understand which contract to use when, offers you practical tips on how to address the more common negotiation points, and provides further guidance and clarity about what each contract covers.
In addition, you have the option of an annual review meeting with us, where we discuss your wider business, how the contracts are working for you (including anything you might want to see changed or tailored for you), and basically anything else you think a commercial and legal specialist might be able to help you with.
Finally, just for being a Supported client, you get a 10% discount on any additional work we do for you under the Freestyle option.
All of the above is available for an annual fee of £450 plus VAT (or £41.25 plus VAT as a monthly payment, minimum term of 6 months).
STOP-PRESS – annual fee for the Supported package is discounted to £350 plus VAT until 31 March 2018.
This package gives you everything the Supported package covers, with one really powerful addition: the ability to get candid’s help with an unlimited number of quick questions. A “quick question” is one which is stand-alone (i.e. is separate to anything you’ve previously asked) and takes less than 15 minutes to ask and answer. It can be on anything covered by candid – see the can do page for more details – not just contracts stuff.
The all-in price for this package is an annual fee of £750 plus VAT (or £66.25 plus VAT as a monthly payment, minimum term of 6 months).
STOP-PRESS – annual fee for the Supported-Plus package is discounted to £650 plus VAT until 31 March 2018.
