    apply

    Hi
    I am not a teacher.
    Suppose I am submitting a proposal for a service to a client and the price I am offering is net and shall be paid to me without any deduction for tax or anything.
    Is it right to write"No deduction shall be applied to payments".
    Does "apply" fit for such purpose?.
    If no, what other word fits better?.
    Thank you

    I'm afraid I don't understand your question. If you are the service provider, your fee is your fee. How could someone deduct taxes or anything else from your fee?

    Hi MikeNewYork
    Hi
    I am nor a teacher.
    Thank you for your reply.
    you understood it correctly,My fee is my fee. But suppose according to some exceptions, client has the right to deduct or not to deduct a portion of the payment. now we want to make him clear that he shouldn't use his right for this proposal and accept the price as net and pay it against the received services without any deduction.
    Now could we use "apply" as said in previous post for this purpose?
    thank you

    hm46, you don't need to write "I am not a teacher" when you are asking a question or simply taking part in a thread you started. You only need to write it if/when you attempt to answer a question posed by another learner.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: apply

    Yes, 'apply' is the right word if you have such a situation.
    Here, 'concessions' apply to payments by some people - pensioners, unemployed people, etc. - by some service providers.
    You could say, "We have fixed fees. No concessions apply."
