As part of this welcome pack you will learn what to expect and what not to expect when working with VM. This document also outlines our billing and credit terms. Please take a moment to read the following sections and sign the form below which will open your client account with the VM team.
Each Project is priced separately. Video Projects include research, planning & storyboarding first. Shoot days may include videographer, audio tech, director, interviewer and runners. Post-Production is charged daily, and motion graphics/animation as extra as required. Our hourly rate is €165 per hour for most creative services. We review and revise our hourly rates periodically and our charges are calculated at the rates which are current when the work is carried out. This will include an increase arising from an individual's promotion.
Additional fees may be charged if you decide to make significant changes to the agreed-upon project scope and objectives.
As a creative agency, work typically takes time to approve, so we invoice as we go, either at the end of a staged process or at the end of the month. For new clients, we invoice and expect payment for 50% of the project in advance. This, in our experience, ensures both sides are committed from the start.
In addition to our fees and those of third parties, our bills will also include charges for expenses which include all costs incurred by us on your behalf such as couriers, travelling expenses (outside Dublin), administration costs, tax and all other expenses incurred by us on your behalf. Although you will be advised of those in advance.
You authorise us to incur such expenses in connection with the services which we provide to you. These expenses will be listed separately when we send you a bill. Where large amounts of printing or photocopying are required by you, we may charge for this. If so, this separate expense will be itemised on your bill.
As part of this project, VM Digital includes up 4 hours of first round and 2 hours of second round amends, this typically is enough to ensure that all parties are happy with the final product. The Client may be charged additional fees if it decided to make significant changes to the agreed-upon project scope and objectives.

2nd round up to 2 hours of minor amends

If no interim bills are issued, we will bill after we have carried out our work. We will specify the period to which the bill relates and what the bill covers. Payment of bills is due on presentation unless otherwise agreed. The law now provides that unless you are a consumer, interest applies automatically to bills where payment is not made within 30 days. The applicable interest rate is 8.00% per annum. (NOTE This rate will change on 1 January and 1 July each year to track changes in ECB rates. The rate applicable to any unpaid bill is the rate applying on the date payment falls due.)
We may request you to make a payment to us in advance on account of our fees and expenses. Any payment on account will be credited against any bills which we have issued or may issue for the work which we carry out.
