I would like to gather some opinions from those of you who regularly do SMR
searches for DEFRA Upland Surveys.
I have had a VERY large last minute (typical!) request come in that will involve
more than just an hour of my time - more like half a day or more depending on
whether I can draft in a colleague to help. Now my dilema is that we typically
charge a flat fee of £50 ex VAT for these searches. But most searches only have
a few SMR points and so only require the standard hour or so of my time to
produce maps, print the SMR data and provide some interpretation and comments.
In your experience(s) would you charge extra for the large amount of time and
work this one will require? How much - at an hourly rate?
