Disclaimer related to service

The service provider’s approval of EIC beneficiaries as clients is predicated on satisfactory due diligence of creditworthiness. The service provider’s risk assessment team will conduct necessary financial evaluations to ascertain the beneficiary’s ability to fulfill its payment obligations under the service contract. Beneficiaries who successfully demonstrate creditworthiness shall be required to pay an upfront fee, consisting of 60% of the professional fees and 100% of the official taxes and charges, before the commencement of services. This upfront fee payment serves as a provision to initiate work on the file. Once the upfront fee has been settled, beneficiaries shall be onboarded as clients and services will commence accordingly.
