|Travel costs for additional travel charges associated with inspections||$175 per hr of travel and up to $0.75 AUD per kilometre (based on the ATO rate)|
These fees will be reviewed and amended from time to time.
* Additional time and travel costs will apply depending on the location of the site to be inspected, this will be $175 per hr of travel and up to $0.75 AUD per kilometre (at the discretion of the inspector). Inspections within 30 minutes drive from the inspectors address should not incur travel costs.
# Should a site meeting, testing or dispute resolution lead to the requirement for written information (therefore the client believes there is still an issue with the floor and wishes to progress the matter), the process becomes a full floor inspection and the balance of payment is required before the inspection proceeds (the balance being the difference in cost between that paid and the next level undertaken).
