2.8 DEDICATED ANNUAL SUPPORT CONTRACT
A customer with a Dedicated Annual Support Contract (DASC) has an agreement with FCC, which specifies that FCC will provide technical support for a certain number of hours per month, according to a specific Service Level Agreement (SLA). These hours are in addition to the ones provided by the active subscription. If the customer exceeds the agreed-upon number of support hours, they will be charged the full price of €/$135 per hour for any additional hours.

Data imports, transaction migrations, analysis, consulting, integrations, software customizations, and training are not included in the DASC. However, FCC may use DASC hours to perform or complete some of these tasks at its sole discretion. If a customer decides not to renew their DASC, any unused hours will not be available after the renewal of their other subscriptions and will not be refunded. DASC support hours are the only support hours that can be transferred from one year to another.

3.0 ONE-OFF CHARGES: ONBOARDING, CONSULTING, ANALYSIS, INTEGRATIONS, MANAGEMENT SYSTEM DATA MIGRATIONS, SOFTWARE CUSTOMIZATIONS, AND TRAINING

Activities related to one-off charges will not be scheduled or performed until they are fully paid for in advance.

3.1 ONBOARDING
Onboarding is always attached to an FCC + QBO application and includes the following:

  1. Import of lists (vendors, customers, products)
  2. A 30-minute onboard call (log-in and access)
  3. Analysis of the Chart of Accounts
  4. 2 hours of status updates with a consultant

Customers who have fiscal compliance with the FCC Accounting System must follow all the information provided in the latest versions of the Electronic Invoicing Manual sent by FCC. The first steps for customers, using Italy as an example, are listed below:

  • Communicate the code provided by FCCGroup Inc. (e.g., “Codice Destinatario” in Italy) to the Tax Agency (e.g., “Cassetto Fiscale” in Italy)
  • Communicate their VAT number to FCCGroup Inc.
  • Communicate to FCC if they opt-in for the Legally Compliant Digital Storage service (e.g., “Conservazione Sostitutiva” in Italy)
  • Communicate to FCCGroup Inc. an email to receive notifications in case of discarded invoices (if not communicated, FCCGroup Inc. will choose one of the customer’s email addresses)

3.1.1 E-Invoice
3.1.1.1 Italy

The Italian Compliance package includes up to 3,000 electronic invoice and bill attempts. After these 3,000 attempts have been used, the cost per invoice and bill will be €/$0.04. If a customer exceeds the number of prepaid attempts, FCC will charge the customer for the additional attempts at the end of January each year for the previous year. At the same time, FCC will also invoice the forecast for the current year.

Customers who subscribe to Legally Compliant Digital Storage will be charged €/$0.03 for each transmitted or received invoice and bill at the end of each year. Additionally, there will be a one-time fee of €20. These charges will also be invoiced at the end of January each year for the previous year, along with the forecast for the current year.

3.2 ANALYSIS AND CONSULTING
FCC will assess the topics, their complexity, and specificity, and agree on an appropriate number of hours for the Analysis and Consultancy service with the requesting party.

3.3. INTEGRATIONS
FCC will assess the required integration, its complexity, and specificity, and agree on an appropriate number of hours for the integration service with the requesting party. Our estimates are based on an Agile approach, and there may be extra costs at the end of the job.

3.6. TRAINING
Training is organized into three levels:

  1. Academy: a library of training materials
  2. Live Events: live training sessions with Q&A
  3. Checkpoints/Specific Required Topic Sessions: one-to-one sessions

The training process can be guided in different levels, depending on the customer’s maintenance plan or DASC.

Onsite training is available when a customer requires at least 5 days. Remote training sessions are always a maximum of 1 hour. By participating in a live event, the customer acknowledges that their platform may be used as an example during the event and for future commercial or training purposes.

4.0. TECHNICAL SUPPORT
The cost of technical support is €/$135 per hour. Customers must send their requests to support@fcc.inc, including details, screenshots, and documents. Any hours exceeding those included in the customer’s plan will be billed monthly and are due upon receipt (net 10 days). If the customer fails to pay, FCC will temporary stop providing services (see paragraph 8.0)

Each ticket has a minimum count of 0.25 (15 minutes) to allow for the classification, assignment, review, and response to the request.

FCC technologies and platforms may be based on third-party software. The customer acknowledges that some specific technical issues may not be attributable to FCC and may not be resolved by FCC in a timely manner.

5.0 PRICING FLUCTUATIONS
The customer acknowledges that the platforms may be subject to price fluctuations due to update of the features, changes in the infrastructure and third-party software used by FCC. These price increases may affect billing during the year or at renewal, at FCC’s sole discretion.

6.0. HOW TO WITHDRAW FROM SUBSCRIPTIONS AND CHARGES
Credit notes related to a subscription or charge will be kept as credit for the customer’s next renewal invoice. Refunds through a credit card or bank account will only be provided if a customer wishes to completely withdraw from all FCC services.
