… and have no surprises at the payment!
That’s right. The reason is that when requesting a quote we forget about some details that can impact the final expense of an invoice.
First of all, taxes: if not specified, remember to ask if they are included or excluded and what’s their amount (for some services it will be 10%, for others 22%, other suppliers will still be exempt).
Always ask if any changes to the quote you received are for a fee: for example if you want different wines, or if you want a particular wedding cake, or if the chairs you like are included or have an extra charge. Any children at the reception? Ask about the kids menu‘s cost and if there is a cost for high chairs’ rental.
Travel expenses and staff dinner cost: do your suppliers come from far away? Ask them if travel expenses are included in the quote or not. Also, remember that for the whole staff it is practical to expect a meal… ask the restaurant or catering for the staff menu’s cost.
Tips for any vendors’ quotations can be infinite, but in general, be mindful of everything that is not explicitly specified and ask for clarifications. Do not worry about asking one more question.
