AFSAFIN Private clients’s differentiation in the affluent market is premised on our unique Billing Process. We have fixed charge-out rates which are link to each specific service or plan and according to time sheets.  What makes us unique is that income received through “legislative commissions” may in some circumstances be credited to our clients account to erase negative client account balances but clients must be aware that in cases where these types or income are reversed due to cancellations, or alterations, clients will be invoiced for these negative credits. These credits are kindly allowed for services provided to clients only and will not be paid-out to clients in cash, as it is prohibited by law.
