|Introduction Fee||the Introduction Fee payable to the Agency and calculated in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement;|

|Service Provider||This term refers to freelancers, natural persons, legal entities, and all other possible forms;|
|Services of Recruitment (or Recruitment Services)||The Introduction of Candidates to the Client by the Agency at the request of the Client and/or in the context of speculative applications or at the Agency's initiative, whether the Candidate is recruited for a fixed-term contract (CDD) or an open-ended contract (CDI), for a temporary assignment (temping) or an assignment as a service provider or on a service provision/contract placement basis (including via any umbrella company or equivalent).|
PROVISIONS RELATING TO CONTRACT PLACEMENTS - These provisions apply when the recruitment services relate to a contract placement, for a temporary assignment (including temporary workers) or for a contract placement (including via any "portage" company or equivalent).
- In the event of any Engagement of a Candidate for a contract placement, via an umbrella company (or equivalent) or as a temporary worker, the Client undertakes to immediately inform the Agency.
- The Client undertakes to ensure that it (and the Candidate concerned) enter into the Agency’s standard service contracts, separate to this Agreement, with the Agency for the entire duration of the relevant assignment (including any extensions and/or subsequent assignments between the Client and the said Candidate). In this case, the Client agrees that the Agency's Introduction Fee shall automatically be calculated at 30% of the relevant Candidate's daily rate for each day worked by the relevant Candidate, for the entire duration of the relevant assignment (including any extensions and/or subsequent assignments between the Client and the Candidate).
- If, within seventy-two (72) hours of the Agency's first request, the Client does not enter into the service agreements with the Agency, the following provisions shall apply:
3.1. The Introduction Fee shall by default amount to 35% of the agreed hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or other rate of the said Candidate as specified in the Introduction; and
3.2. For billing purposes, the Agency will calculate the Introduction Fee on the basis of the applicable daily rate multiplied by a presumed duration of the Engagement which will be set at 12 calendar months (unless the Agency has evidence that the Engagement is of a longer duration, in which case the longer duration will apply). The Introduction Fee will be invoiced in a single instalment.
3.3. By way of example, if the daily rate is EUR 1000 exclusive of tax, the Introduction Fee will be calculated as follows:
- EUR 1000 excl. tax x 12 calendar months based on 220 working days = EUR 220,000 excl. tax.
- 35% commission due to the Agency on EUR 220,000 excluding VAT = Introduction Fee of EUR 77,000 excluding VAT.
- For the avoidance of doubt: (i) if the Engagement is for a period of less than 12 calendar months or is terminated early for any reason whatsoever, no refund or replacement will be granted to the Client by the Agency: and (ii) in this section, a day means eight (8) hours within a twenty-four (24) hour period, without prejudice to the Agency's right to claim payment for any overtime hours actually worked by the Candidate within the said twenty-four (24) hour period. Consequently, the default calculation is based on a minimum eight (8)hour day and no discount or reduction will be granted in the event that a Candidate works less than eight (8) hours in such a twenty-four (24) hour period.
- Where clause 3 of this section applies, payment of the Introduction Fee shall be governed by the provisions of the relevant service contract. In all other cases of Engagement, or if the parties are unable to agree on the provisions of the said service contract within the period specified in clause 3 of this section, the Introduction Fee will be invoiced on a lump sum basis in one instalment.
