Local market conditions

Xactware makes every effort to ensure pricing information contained in the most recent update represents market costs at the time of publication. Since actual market prices can vary and may change rapidly, and since many factors can affect the cost of a project (including—but not limited to—labour, plant, and material costs as well as the rates and application of VAT), we strongly recommend customers monitor their local markets for any such changes and adjust their estimate pricing as deemed appropriate.
