The Advisor is responsible for all taxes resulting from the compensation and other amounts paid under this Agreement and is responsible for all taxes on salaries and ancillary benefits of the Advisor`s staff. Neither federal nor national, local income tax, nor payroll tax of any kind is withheld or paid by the company on behalf of the advisor or his employees. The advisor understands that by law, he/she is responsible for paying the advisor`s taxes and that the advisor, when requested by the company, must duly document to the company that all federal and state taxes have been paid. For an explanation of this agreement, please see the Surview of Consulting Agreements File. 3.1 Indemnification. The Company pays the Consultant $______ per month for the services provided to the Company under this Agreement. The monthly allowance shall be paid on the first of the month following that in which the services were provided. The monthly remuneration is paid regardless of the number of hours of advice performed by the advisor in a given month.

[Another option is to pay every hour and request monthly documentation. Monthly remuneration would be reduced by the hourly rate of the number of hours less than the hours worked.] 1.6 Reporting. The advisor will provide the company with regular written reports on its observations and conclusions with regard to advisory services. At the end of this agreement, the consultant shall, at the request of the company, draw up a final report on the consultant`s activities. 1.2 Time and Availability. The consultant will dedicate ________ hours per month to the delivery of services to the company, as shown here. In choosing the data and periods at which he provides such consulting services during the month, the advisor has shown discretion, taking due account of the needs of the company.

[The time spent may be hours per day, per week or per year. The company may also choose to pay a monthly lump sum fee regardless of hours, but the company must be careful in this approach.] The salvatorial clause states that if the courts find that a clause of the treaty is invalid or unenforceable, the validity of the other provisions of the treaty is not affected.
