5. Disclaimer of Liability

The preparation of accounts is limited primarily to the collection, classification and summarisation of financial information supplied by the client. A preparation does not involve the verification of that information. We have not carried out an audit or a review assignment on the monthly accounts and therefore we accept no responsibility for the accuracy of the materials from which the monthly accounts have been prepared.

Accounts have been prepared at the request of and for the purpose of the client only and we accept no responsibility on any ground whatever, including liability for negligence, to any other person.

It is not recommended that the Buyer provides Accounting Works employees with direct access to their funds. If they choose to do so, it is the buyers responsibility to ensure that appropriate security measures are in place to prevent the misapplication of funds and Accounting Works does not accept any responsibility should this occur.

6. Recruitment

If the client wishes to offer direct employment to the employee or sub-contractor, a recruitment fee at the equivalent to current market rates will be paid to Accounting Works.
