  • Hi Bernard,
    Thank you very much. We had the first consultation and all seemed to go well.
    Can you please send me your invoice which I will settle upon receipt.
    Should we require your services further, I will let you know. Thank you again for a professional and prompt service.

  • Dear Bernard
    Thank you so much for your prompt and excellent service.
    I see nothing that needs amendment so will print out for Don and Vivi’s signatures.
    May I ask a few more questions?
    Must I give notice to UIF?
    Is there a specific form to complete, notifying them that Vivi is retiring from our employment?
    Also, she works for other people on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
    I imagine she will continue working for them.
    May she claim UIF benefits from the contributions we paid for her?
    Or must she be absolutely unemployed to get these benefits?
    Thanks again for your help.
    Please let me have your invoice banking details and I’ll make payment.
    With best wishes
  • Hi Bernard, thank you so much! I’m so pleased Craig recommended you, you are so efficient! Thank you again! Cat.
