    Terms and conditions, bits of paper to sign, waivers, what if statements,
    mission objectives etc. are all fine if you are a large firm, and have the time and staff to keep up with the paperwork, but I am a minimalist person and hate creating unnecasary work. I find that just telling the client what you expect regarding payment, is good enough. I just say ok it’s £xxx Give me the cheque and I will complete in X days.
    Just dont give credit unless you have done checks, or know the firm well enough to trust them. Always ask yourself, When did I last get credit without any checks, filling in forms etc.
    Dont give credit unless you are prepared to do all the checks and paperwork
