Evoke Management and the Client are referred to herein as a party or the parties.
Headings are for reference purposes only and will not affect the intended meanings of the clauses to which they relate.

3. BASIS OF THE CONTRACT AND SERVICES
3.1 Evoke Management will discuss the requirements with the Client and will (in conjunction with the Client) determine the appropriate Consultant to assist with delivering the Services. Evoke Management will use reasonable endeavours to ensure the suitability of its Consultants but gives no warranty as to the suitability or availability of such Consultant. It is the Client’s responsibility to satisfy itself as to such matters.
3.2 Evoke Management will provide the Client with a Letter of Engagement setting out the scope of the Services, the Consultant who will be allocated to perform the Services, the period during which the Services will be performed (including relevant days and times for the provision of the Services) and the agreed price for the Services (based on project price/agreed daily or hourly rate as applicable). Any changes or addition to the Services will be agreed between the parties in writing.
3.3 Evoke Management and the Consultant will work on the basis of information provided by the Client and/or others authorised by the Client to provide the Services. The Client must ensure that all relevant information, instructions and documents are provided to Evoke Management and the Consultant at the commencement of the Services or as soon as they are available.
3.4 The Services are performed on a business to business basis. The manner in which Evoke Management and Consultants deliver the Services is at their individual absolute discretion. Consultants are independent contractors providing consultancy services. Consultants are not and will not be subject to (or entitled to) supervision, direction and control by Evoke Management, the Client or any third party, including customers of the Client. Accordingly, nothing in these Terms will render the Evoke Management Consultant an employee, worker, agent or partner of either Evoke Management or the Client. For the avoidance of doubt, Evoke Management is not an employment business or agency, so is not providing work finding services to Consultants, nor is it acting as a recruitment agency for the Client.
3.5 The Services:
(a) are more particularly described in the Letter of Engagement, but will consist of advice provided to the Client on matters that might reasonably be considered to be the responsibility of a part time director and/or part time regional director of the Client;
(b)will not include the signing of a Companies House form AP01 (formerly 288) appointing the Consultant as a director of the Client where the Client is a limited company;
(c) will not include any functions or actions that might be interpreted as the Consultant acting as a shadow director of the Client;
(d) will be provided by the Consultant identified in the Letter of Engagement however Evoke Management will be entitled to, in accordance with clause 8.4(a) below, substitute the Consultant identified in the Letter of Engagement;
(e) will be provided at such times and at such locations as the client and the Consultant shall agree from time to time;
(f)will commence on the date set out in the Letter of Engagement and shall continue until termination of the Terms in accordance with clause 8 or as otherwise may be set out in the Letter of Engagement.
3.6 Where Services are to be performed at the Client’s premises the Client agrees to provide the Consultant and Evoke Management and its employees, agents, consultants and sub-contractors, with access to the Client’s premises and other facilities as may reasonably be required by Evoke Management and/or the Consultant.
3.7 Evoke Management will provide Services on the basis of information and instructions given to them by the Client and/or others authorised by the Client. The Client should not assume any knowledge of facts of its business on Evoke Management’s part.
3.8 The Client shall ensure that all relevant information, instructions and documents are provided to Evoke Management at the commencement of the Services or as soon as they are available. In particular, the Client shall:
(a) keep Evoke Management promptly informed of any proposals or developments in its business relevant to the Letter of Engagement or the Services;
(b) provide Evoke Management promptly with all further information and documents that appear to be relevant to the Letter of Engagement or Services; and
(c) let Evoke Management know about any relevant changes (or intended changes) to its business so that the implications of such changes on the Letter of Engagement or the Services can be assessed.
4. FEES AND INVOICING
4.1 The Client agrees to pay Evoke Management’s fees for the Services at the rate and intervals set out in the relevant Letter of Engagement. Subject to clause 4.3 below, any other changes to fee rates will be agreed in writing and will take effect from the agreed date.
4.2 The Consultant will record hours/days spent (as applicable) providing the Services and will submit such records to Evoke Management, based upon which, the Client will be invoiced.
4.3 The fees shall be reviewed on the anniversary of the Letter of Engagement each year and Evoke Management shall give the Client 30 days written notice of any increase (save for where the only increase to the fees is in line with the Retail Price Index, in which case Evoke Management shall not be obliged to notify the Client of such increase).
4.4 Expenses travelling to the Client’s premises and subsistence at the Client’s premises, as referred to in the Letter of Engagement shall be included in the invoice, unless otherwise stated in the Letter of Engagement or as may be otherwise agreed between the parties. Any other expenses incurred in the provision of the Services will be agreed with the Client in advance by the Consultant and will be charged in the Evoke Management monthly invoices.
4.5 Unless otherwise set out in the Letter of Engagement or as otherwise agreed between the parties, Evoke Management will invoice monthly with respect to Services provided to the Client. Where necessary, Evoke Management will charge VAT on its invoices at the applicable rate. All payments to Evoke Management shall be made by bank transfer by the 7th day of the month immediately following the invoice date. Evoke Management reserves the right to claim interest under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 on all outstanding sums.
4.6 Any payments or bank transfers that incur bank charges (including the receiving bank’s charges) are the Client’s responsibility. The Client should check what these charges are and add them to the amount the Client transfers. If the Client does not, Evoke Management reserve the right to include these charges on its invoices to the Client.
4.7 All queries about fees and expenses must be raised in writing within 7 days of the Evoke Management invoice being received, otherwise the invoice will be deemed to be accepted.
4.8 Evoke Management reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate provision of the Services should fees remain outstanding over 30 days. Evoke Management will tell the Client if it decides to suspend and/or terminate our Services in these circumstances. If Evoke Management terminates the Services for any reason, the fees and expenses incurred up to that date and remaining un-billed will then be invoiced to the Client.
5. DELIVERY OF SERVICES AND STATUS
5.1 The Client acknowledges and confirms (for itself and those working for and/or connected with the Client, including its customers) that it will not, at any time, exert supervision, direction (other than for the purpose of outlining Service deliverables or complying with its health and safety duties), or control over the manner in which the Services are provided.
5.2 The Client acknowledges that it is responsible for providing the Consultant (as a contractor) with a safe working environment during any time that the Consultant provides the Services at the Client’s premises. To comply with health and safety legislation, the Client will carry out such risk assessments and provide such comprehensive information to the Consultant as may be required to ensure that the Consultant is made aware of any particular risks arising out of the provision of the Services.
5.3 Consultants are not employees of Evoke Management nor of the Client, so the Consultant will be responsible for the payment of all employment taxes and national insurance contributions (where relevant) with respect to the Consultant. In the event that the Client breaches clause 5 of these Terms giving rise to a claim by HMRC against Evoke Management or the Client under PAYE and NICs legislation, the Client will indemnify Evoke Management with respect to all costs, claims, expenses and any interest arising from any such claim as set out in clause 7.7 of these Terms.
6. NON-POACHING OF A CONSULTANT
6.1 Consultants are assigned on the understanding that, unless agreed otherwise in writing by Evoke Management, the Client will not engage them independently of Evoke Management (whether directly or indirectly, on a permanent or temporary basis, under a contract of service or for services, through a company, agency, license, franchise or partnership arrangement, or any other engagement) (“Engage or Engagement”) during the term the Services are provided and for the 12 month period following the end of the provision of Services. In addition, the Client will not introduce them to any third party during the term the Services are provided and for the 18 month period following the end of the provision of Services (non-poaching period).
6.2 If the Client Engages a Consultant within the non-poaching period (or where Evoke Management agrees in writing to such Engagement within the non-poaching period), the Client will be liable for a fee (representing loss of Evoke Management income). The fee will be calculated at the rate of 25% of the Consultant’s annual base salary (plus benefits, plus VAT). The Client agrees that they will forthwith provide details of the annual base salary payable to the Consultant as soon as an offer of Engagement is accepted by the Consultant. If the Client fails to provide this information, the Client agrees to pay Evoke Management a fee at the rate of 25% of a notional annual base salary based on the market rate for comparable roles at the time of the Engagement (as determined by Evoke Management in its sole discretion).
6.3 If the Client Engages a Consultant on an independent contractor basis in the non-poaching period (or where Evoke Management agrees in writing to such Engagement within the non-poaching period) the Client agrees to pay Evoke Management the greater of:
(a) An amount equivalent to 25% of the total fees received from the Client in the last 12 month period during which Services were provided; or
(b) 25% of the Consultant’s last known standard day rate multiplied by the average number of days worked by the Consultant on Services provided to the Client in the last 12 month period during which Services were provided to the Client; or
(c) [£30,000 (plus VAT)].
6.4 Consultant details are confidential and must not be passed on to third parties without Evoke Management written consent. If the Client does introduce a Consultant to a third party which results in an Engagement of the Consultant by that third party within the non-poaching period referred to in clause 6.1, the Client will be liable to pay a fee to Evoke Management of 15% of the net invoiced activity completed by the Consultant for the third party. Where the net invoiced amount is not known, Evoke Management will charge a fee equivalent to 15% of the Consultant’s last known standard day rate for the average number of days worked by the Consultant during the last 12 months during which Services were provided to the Client.
7. LIABILITY & INDEMNITY
