Web Design & SEO Project Terms

Payment Schedule

A deposit comprising 50% of the total project cost is required upfront prior to the commencement of work. The final 50% of the total fee is payable on completion of the work. Payment options which deviate from the standard terms can be discussed on larger or long term projects (this can include paying in instalments for start-up or new businesses).

Specification, Requirements & Quotes

A full project specification, agreed by both parties, is required prior to the commencement of any work. This should comprise a brief detailing all requirements and inclusions.

Once the project brief has been received and a specification agreed, clients will be provided with an estimate on the number of days required to complete the project.

All quotes and estimates will be made under the assumption that work will be completed remotely. Should on-site work be required this will need to be agreed at the project scoping phase and may also incur additional costs.

If a fixed price is required prior to project commencement this will need to be discussed and agreed in advance.

Content & Copyright

For the development of WordPress websites, Web Design & SEO Barnsley will perform the initial addition of on site content. The exact parameters of content required will be scoped and agreed at the specification stage. Subsequent content amendments and ongoing additions outside of the agreed specification will need to be agreed separately and may be subject to an additional charge.

Clients will guarantee that all assets provided to Web Design & SEO Barnsley during the project are the property of the client (including all images, text and additional elements).

Web Design & SEO Barnsley reserves the right to display a link to your project on this website as part of the business’ ongoing portfolio. A link back to Web Design & SEO Barnsley’s website will also be included in the footer of the client’s website. If clients require this link to be removed then this can be arranged subject to a small administration charge.


In the unlikely scenario of a project falling behind the agreed deadline, notice will be given to the client by Web Design & SEO Barnsley in order that a revised deadline for delivery can be arranged.

Should clients request an earlier deadline once a project has been initiated, this can be discussed with Web Design & SEO Barnsley. Please note that changes made by the client to the agreed deadline may be subject to additional charges.

Work Outside of Agreed Specification

Should clients require additional work outside of the agreed specification; this can be completed following discussion with Web Design & SEO Barnsley.  This additional work will be charged at a rate of £30 per hour and added to the final project invoice. Additional work requested following the completion of any project will also be charged at a rate of £30 per hour.

Browser Support & testing

All projects will be fully tested by Web Design & SEO Barnsley using current versions of major desktop browsers including Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Hosting can be provided by Web Design & SEO Barnsley at an ongoing rate of £5 per calendar month. Depending on the scope of the project, a period of hosting can be provided free-of-charge. Costings and terms for hosting packages can be agreed with Web Design & SEO Barnsley during the project specification period.

If clients wish to organise an independent hosting package then Web Design & SEO Barnsley can arrange for the site to be hosted to the client’s specified requirements.


Web Design & SEO Barnsley will arrange for a contract to be dispatched to clients for signing to indicate their agreement to proceed in line with the agreed project specification. Signed contracts alongside receipt of the deposit payment indicate a client’s agreement with the terms on this page.
