    When I worked with my wife on small to mid size projects, we never has issue with keeping it relatively simple:


    WORKING/BILLING PHASES - Each project starts with a 50% deposit. Concept revisions, extensive alterations or a switch in objective sometimes make it impossible to accurately estimate in advance the total cost of a project. Hours are estimated to complete the CLIENT project. Time spent on CLIENT project is accurately recorded using Harvest software. The final owing will be due once CLIENT has received final files.

    REVISIONS AND ALTERATIONS - New work requested by CLIENT after original estimate has been approved is considered a revision or alteration. If the job changes to an extent that substantially alters the specifications described in the original estimate, a proposal revision estimate will be sent to CLIENT, and a revised additional fee must be agreed on by both parties before further work proceeds.

    Once the estimate has been approved an invoice for 50% will be sent to CLIENT. Project will begin once payment has been received.


    Before we had the above we got "fucked" a few times; once or twice by good friends / colleagues, which sadly 105% of QBN can relate to.

    Godspeed @formed.

    • Change Harvest to whatever you use to track your time; treat your office like a lawyers office and kill and bill all day every day.

      ; )
    • Harvest is damn fine for tracking time, after you get used to it rounding the hoursgrafician
    • I mean if you do 1:20 it will round it to :30 so watch out before sending the final invoice based on Harvest timegrafician
    • This satisfies my OCD, BUT don't think it does it automatically?

      We didn't make great money until using Harvest + stripe integration.
    • just saying I was schooled by an agency accountant letting me know Harvest is rounding time and needing to calculate the final invoice by handgrafician
    • But yeah, using Harvest + Basecamp for PM is the winning ticketgrafician
    • What's an accountant?!

      Haha; understood and agree. Time = money = time. This is how lawyers work and we should all do the same.
    • Well when you charge hundreds per hour, you need to be careful with the final invoice, accountants get spicy with itgrafician
