Supplier: Let's go over the remaining points, shall we? It's the advancepayment now. Any objections?
Customer: No objections at all. And we are sorry to say that we find it a bit high.
S. Now, Mr M., 25 per cent is a fair sum, all things considered.
C. We know the amount of the work you are going to do, and we're not quite sure this sum is justified. Do you think you could explain this, Mr. A.?
S. Yes, I think I must explain. The advance will cover the expenses of our design organizations and the contractual expenses.
C. Will that come to 25 per cent of the contract value?
S. Very close to it. Besides, we agreed that the customer would come to Russia in the course of the work, and visit our designers in St.Petersburg as well. Transport, hotel accommodation and other things will be covered by the Russian party, too. Anyway in view of our further business I think we can go down by 5 per cent. What do you say to that?
C. All right, Mr A. We'll agree to this. I think this point is covered. The terms of payment are quite acceptable. As to our obligations, we shall observe the provision of the (draft) contract to consider the DPR within 45 days.
S. Fine. It is certainly very important. We both know very well that a delay in consideration and approval of the DPR will cause a delay in the preparation of the working drawings.
С We'll do our best.
S. Very good.
