I. General Notes
Our Money Back Guarantee Policy
If we do not comply with our General Terms and Conditions of Sale, you will have 14 days from the sale date to apply for a full refund (less bank transfer and administration fees). We can only reimburse the original payee. Credit card payments will be credited back via credit card only. Given the nature of the services that we provide, we will only entertain well-founded requests and in some cases, at our own discretion, we may only offer partial discounts or no discounts at all.
The management of the company wishes to remain open to well-founded complaints in order not only to resolve them efficiently, but also to improve our service at large. Complaints are handled by the director of AllSetInFrance.
Complaints can be lodged in writing to the office address of AllSetInFrance with the envelope marked personal and confidential. Please substantiate any complaints with precise facts, dates and names if you want us to be able to act on your complaint. Any vague complaints or unconstructive insults will be discarded without follow-up. We will attempt to answer or resolve any complaint within a maximum of 3 days.
II. Our services
Company formation (company incorporation)
Once you have ordered us the incorporation of the new company on your behalf, we will make every effort to execute your orders within minutes, that is why it is generally impossible to cancel orders after ordering.
Once we have accepted a request for services you may contact us by telephone, email or at our postal to ask us if your request has been withdrawn. Given the nature of the services we provide, it will be entirely at our discretion whether or not you are entitled to a refund for the latter. In the exercise of such discretion, we will consider the extent of the work we already began according to the provision of that service or the payment of third parties’ fees. As the service includes the formation of a company, once the incorporation request has been submitted to the Companies House/Registry, it will not be possible to stop the company formation process.
The time for the formation of a company usually depends on how fast the registrar replies to our request. In any case we cannot be held responsible for delays in registrar back-ups or for technical problems that may occur during the process.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE US WITH A PROPER POSTAL ADDRESS, EMAIL AND TELEPHONE NUMBER SO THAT WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE DOCUMENTS REACH YOU DILIGENTLY.
Legal and Fiscal Advice
Although we may guide you in the right direction with the best of our knowledge when you order us services, we are doing so for strictly informational purposes and this guidance should never be considered as legal, financial, accounting, or fiscal advice. If you need solid advice, we recommend you to hire independent professional services.
The Client acknowledges that the Agent does not give any legal or tax advice, nor does the Agent make any representation, whether expressed or implied, that any Company or other entity or any particular corporate structure or organization, will be fit for or achieve any particular purpose for the Client, whether or not such purpose or intention was notified by the Client to the Agent.
We will be happy to recommend you professional advisers if you need assistance in that regards.
Bank introductions or Bank account opening assistance
Although you may freely contract bank opening services on our website, by telephone or in our office and agent offices, we reserve the right to cancel the order and fully refund the sums that were paid in full (less any bank transfer fees, credit card fees or PayPal fees – if any – and without the need to justify the motivation of such refusal).
Once we do go ahead with your bank account opening or bank introduction, we may cancel the procedure at any time if you cannot provide us or the bank with proper compliance documentation such as a proof of address and an identification of the beneficial owners. The same if you do not have the necessary funding or skills to operate your business, if you demonstrate improper behaviour towards any of our employees or the bank‘s employees, if you are late to meetings, score poorly on credit checks, or for any other reason that we may judge inappropriate.
In the event that we have to cancel services at this stage, we will refund any money paid for this purpose (less reasonable costs and for the time spent by our employees in processing your application and accompanying you to the bank, for translation works or for any other services that we may have provided you with). If you cancel an appointment less than 48 hours in advance, we reserve the right to charge a reasonable penalty of approximately 20 to 25% of the assistance services offered and reschedule the appointment. If this happens more than once, we reserve the right to cancel the whole service and reimburse you part of the fees at our discretion (less any fines that we may have levied for damages in time or reputation caused by late cancelations). If you do not show up to a bank appointment without a reason due to “Force Majeure” or a reasonable excuse, we may forfeit all or part of the fees charged for the bank introduction and may chose not to continue providing you with services.
In the event that we must go back to the bank with you because you were unable to go on the first time, we will usually charge the time at our current hourly rate for administrative work.
The opening of bank accounts is not a guarantee and, although this may be rare, you may be obliged to travel several times at your own cost and expense to complete the process. In the event that the bank refuses to open an account for your company, we will evaluate the situation and either offer alternate banking options or reimburse you any unused credit.
INSOFAR AS BANK INTRODUCTION SERVICES OR BANK OPENING ASSISTANCE IS CONCERNED, WE WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO SATISFY YOU, YET NOTE THAT THE SERVICE IS ONE OF INTRODUCTION AND ASSISTANCE IN BANKING PAPERWORK AND PROCEDURES, AND WE PUT AT YOUR SERVICE OUR KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT BANKS WILL GENERALLY DO FOR BANK ACCOUNT OPENING. WE ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION OF PERFORMANCE AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WE DO WARRANT THAT A BANK WILL OPEN AN ACCOUNT. FACTORS SUCH AS CURRENT ECONOMIC CONDITIONS, YOUR CREDIT SITUATION, OR YOUR BUSINESS EXPERIENCE MAY BAR YOU FROM OPENING AN ACCOUNT.
Completion of Service for Bank Introductions
If the bank does agree to open an account for you, our services will be deemed complete as soon as the main account for the company is opened. Although we may freely agree to assist you in other banking matters, in no event we will be held liable for not obtaining credit or debit cards, chequebooks, merchant accounts, letters of credit, internet access or any other type of banking product. Some banks may flatly refuse to provide any of those services and we will be under no obligation to find alternate solutions.
