2.1. All referrals of customers by Flexioffices shall be deemed to give rise to commission payments upon completion of contracts, unless the Provider is able to demonstrate to reasonable satisfaction within 48 hours of a referral that it has previously been contacted by such persons other than through a referral from Flexioffices.
2.2. Any viewings arranged by Flexioffices shall also be deemed to be introductions of referrals which will also give rise to commissions as per clause 2.3.
2.3. Commission payable for a successful introduction shall be an amount of 10% of the fully inclusive license fee payable by the customer to the Provider during the first 12 months of the customer’s occupancy, unless additional fees are agreed by prior arrangement. The payment is due in advance for the term of the contract up to 12 months.
2.4. If a customer signs up for an initial period of less than 12 months, Flexioffices is entitled to charge commission on any renewal fees up to 12 months, irrespective of whether Flexioffices were involved in the renewal discussions.
2.5. For deals exceeding 12 months that include a rent-free period in the first year, Flexioffices shall invoice on the following basis:
Monthly license fee, multiplied by the total number of paid months, divided by the total term in months, multiplied by 12, multiplied by 10% (or the higher fee as agreed by the Provider). By way of an illustration:
• A customer signs up for 3 years paying £1000 per calendar month. There is an agreed 3 month rent free period, months 1-3. Commission is calculated as follows: (1000x33/36 x12) x 10% = £1099.99
