(2) Professional Obligations
(2.1) Lilla Ekonomibyrån Sverige AB is committed to the best of our ability to follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and the Code of Ethics which can be found at www.bfn.se/english/regulations.
(2.2) For most of our engagements and services, you will be required to accept a service engagement from us and we will then accept that we will act in accordance with our ‘Standard Terms and Conditions’ and the guidelines of our association.
(2.3) We will confirm all our professional engagements in writing and will normally request you approve these electronically.
(2.4) We reserve the right, at our discretion, not to accept any engagement. This may be due to technical or HR constraints, because we have been unable to confirm your identity, or for any other reason.
Professional indemnity insurance
(2.5) In accordance with the disclosure requirements of our insurance provider www.svedea.se
(2.6) If for any reason circumstances arise that may result in a claim to our professional indemnity insurers, you give us your permission to notify them.
(3) Applicable Law
(3.1) This engagement letter is governed by, and construed in accordance with, Swedish law. The courts in Sweden will have exclusive jurisdiction in relation to any claim, dispute or difference concerning this engagement letter and any matter arising from it. Each party irrevocably waives any right it may have to object to any action being brought in those courts, to claim that the action has been brought in an inappropriate forum, or to claim that those courts do not have jurisdiction.
(3.2) If any provision in these terms of business or any associated engagement letter, or its application, are found to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality or enforce ability of any other provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired.
(4) Changes In The Law
(4.1) We will not accept responsibility if you act on advice previously given by us without first confirming with us that the advice is still valid in the light of any change in the law or your circumstances.
(4.2) We will accept no liability for losses arising from changes in the law or the interpretation thereof that occur after the date on which the advice is given.
(5) Your Responsibilities
(5.1) The advice and service that we provide can only be as good as the information upon which it is based.
(5.2) In so far as that information is provided by you, or by third parties with your permission, your responsibility arises as soon as possible if any circumstances or facts alter as any alteration may have a significant impact on the advisor service given. If the circumstances change therefore or your needs alter, advise us of the alteration as soon as possible in writing.
(5.3) It is wholly your responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of your accounting information and we are wholly dependent on you supplying any information or explanations to us for the purpose of fulfilling the services detailed in our engagement. We are under no obligation to specifically identify missing or incomplete information from your accounting system although we will do our best to assist you with the accuracy of your financial information (accounting and payroll records) when we complete our work.
(6.1) Our fees are mainly fixed and transparent charges based on the units of work completed on your affairs. Hourly charges might apply to initial work to reconcile previous accounting done for periods before the handover to us, and for extraordinary activities usually not associated to ordinary needs of small businesses.
(6.2) If it is necessary for us to carry out work that is outside the scope of the engagement currently in place with you, we will advise you of this in advance, where possible. Any additional work will result in additional fees being charged. We would therefore like to point out that it is in your interests to ensure that the information you provide us with is completed to the agreed stage.
(6.3) If we give you an estimate of our fees for carrying out any specific work, then that estimate will not be contractually binding unless we have explicitly stated that will be the case.
(6.4) In the event that we cease to act for you then you agree to meet all reasonable costs of providing information to your new advisers. In particular you agree to meet these costs where we are required by law to provide information to a successor firm.
(6.5) As directors you guarantee to pay personally any fees for services provided to the company that the company is unable to pay. This clause shall become effective in the event of a receiver or liquidator being appointed to the company or the company otherwise being wound-up.
(6.6) Any disbursements we incur on your behalf and expenses incurred in the course of carrying out our work for you will be added to our invoices where appropriate and may require separate payment.
(6.7) No fees are refundable for any invoices already billed and paid.
(6.8) We reserve the right to charge interest on overdue accounts at the current rate under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) https://lagen.nu/1975:635. We also reserve the right to terminate our engagement and cease acting if payment of any fees billed is unduly delayed.
(6.9) If you do not accept that an invoiced fee is fair and reasonable you must notify us within 14 days of receipt, failing which you will be deemed to have accepted that payment is due.
(7) Get the right service from us
(7.1) If at any time you would like to discuss with us how our service to you could be improved, or if you are dissatisfied with the service you are receiving, please let us know by contacting our Managing Director.
(7.2) We undertake to look into any complaint carefully and promptly and do all we can to explain the position to you.
(7.3) In order for us to provide you with a high quality service on an ongoing basis it is essential that you provide us with relevant records and information when requested, reply to correspondence in a timely manner and otherwise follow the terms of the agreement between us. We therefore reserve the right to cancel the engagement between us with immediate effect in the event of:
- your insolvency, bankruptcy or other arrangement being reached with creditors;
- failure to pay our fees by the due dates; and
- either party being in breach of their obligations where this is not corrected within 30 days of being asked to do so.
(8.1) Communication between us is confidential and we shall take all reasonable steps to keep your information confidential except where we are required to disclose it by law, by regulatory bodies, by our insurers or as part of an external peer review.
(9) Digital communication
(9.1) By default we will use email, our portal or other electronic means to communicate with you. Only if deemed necessary we will accept contact by telephone.
(9.2) Communications over the internet are capable of data corruption and therefore we do not accept any responsibility for loss of information due to such communications after their dispatch.
(9.3) It is the responsibility of the recipient to carry out a virus check on any attachments received.
(9.4) Unless you instruct us otherwise we may communicate with you and undertake online filing of documents with third parties on your behalf by electronic means. Recipients are responsible for virus checking and other safeguards applying to electronic storage of data.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. By continuing to access or use our Services (our online website content and forms/calculator) after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms.
