You will receive an engagement letter specifically outlining the scope of services provided under your subscription. We do not provide any refund for our subscription services after the date that this engagement letter is accepted by you as the recipient of these subscription services. We will allow a 7 day cooling off period where an initial set-up fee is involved at which time fees collected will be refunded to you in full.
Any quotes we prepare will detail the scope of the assignments we will undertake and our monthly fee (“Engaged Services”).
The nature of our engaged services may evolve over the period of our engagement. Should we become aware of material variances to the engagement scope or our fee projections, we will contact you in the first instance to discuss a suitable course of action. Any provision of services which are requested by you and which fall outside the Scope will be subject to a separate price and separate engagement letter.
Our business will provide the engaged services in accordance with the relevant professional and ethical standards issued by the Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards Board Limited (APESB). The extent of our procedures and services will be limited exclusively for this purpose only. As a result, we will not undertake an audit or review and accordingly, no assurance will be expressed. Our engagement must not be relied upon to disclose irregularities including fraud, other illegal acts and errors that may exist. However, we will inform you of any such matters that come to our attention.
Any output from the engaged services (e.g. payroll reports and data, financial statements, income tax returns, or other compiled reports will be prepared for distribution to the parties to our engagement and to relevant statutory bodies for the agreed purpose. There is no assumption of responsibility for any reliance on our report by any person or entity other than you and those parties indicated in the report. The report shall not be inferred or used for any purpose other than for which it was specifically prepared. Accordingly, our report may include a disclaimer to this effect.
Your Rights and Obligations Under The Taxation Laws
You have certain rights under the taxation laws, including the right to seek a private ruling from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or to appeal or object against a decision made by the Commissioner. As relevant, we will provide further information to you concerning your rights under the Australian taxation laws during the conduct of the engagement outlined in this letter.
You are also required to advise us if you become aware of any conflict of interest or potential conflict of interest. Generally, a conflict of interest is any event which may result in us becoming unable to remain objective in the performance of our services to you. Some examples of events which could give rise to a conflict of interest or potential conflict of interest during this engagement are changes to your business circumstances, events affecting your family (eg. death and/or marriage breakdown) or a legal action commencing against you.
Our Obligation to Comply With The Law
We have a duty to act in your best interests. However, the duty to act in your best interests is subject to an overriding obligation to comply with the law even if that may require us to act in a manner that may be contrary to your interests. For example, we could not lodge an income tax return for you that we knew to be false in a material respect. We also have an obligation to ensure that we manage conflicts of interest as they arise. In this regard, we have arrangements in place to ensure that we manage potential or actual conflicts of interest. The effective operation of these arrangements depend, in part, on you complying with your obligation to disclose any potential conflicts of interest to us (see “Your rights and obligations under taxation laws” above).
Specific to payroll arrangements, we will advise you of any deviations from minimum wage or superannuation obligations which arise from the relevant award or industrial instrument governing your business. We will continue to act in your instructions should such deviations arise however we accept no responsibility for pay adjustments or related statutory fines and penalties which arise as a result of these deviations.
Where relevant, our advice and/or services will be based on Australian law in force at the date of the provision of the advice and/or services. It is your responsibility to seek updated advice if you intend to rely on our advice at a later stage. We note that Australian laws are often subject to frequent change and our advice will not be updated unless specifically requested by you at the time of the change in law or announced change in law.
Ignite Alliance is a progressive and technologically advanced business. We operate in a completely paperless environment, and avoid the use of paper for authorising documents unless it is required by law (e.g. some banks and government institutions). During your service, any correspondence which is signed as a digital or scanned copy will be taken as the original for legal purposes. In turn, you accept that any document signed by us and received as an electronic form be taken as a legally binding document as it would if a signature was written in pen on a hard copy document.
Included for certain products is a recurring finance meeting with an Accountant to discuss your results for the financial period. We will exchange information with you at these meetings, and provide you with your financial reports via a nominated email account 2 days before the scheduled monthly meeting to allow you the opportunity to query the financial results. To allow proper scheduling and workflow management, we request that you provide us with notice of at least one working day to reschedule your monthly management meetings.
Where possible, we try to fall into a pattern of having a standing appointment each period to allow clarity and transparency, as well as building your accounting work into our workflow in a structured way. Please note that conducting this finance meeting on time is always contingent on your ability to provide us with information we request in a timely manner. If outstanding queries exist it may not be possible to have a finance meeting within the planned timeframe. In these instances we will issue a report with some commentary on your financial results in its place.
Fair Use Policy
Ignite Alliance charge on a value-based pricing model rather than on a time basis. We do however implement fair use policies on our time and this is based on your chosen product. We use a ticketing system to track this and you will be notified if your usage of our support exceeds the fair use policy.
Additionally, we emphasise that any requests or assigned tasks that fall outside of the scope of services listed in this quote will be subject to a separate engagement letter and proposed fee.

We will suspend work on engaged assignments if:
You have insufficient funds to pay our monthly fee;
You engage another firm to advise you on this matter without our consent;
On reasonable grounds we believe that we may have conflict of interest; or Other just cause.
