Every business has to give its customers prices for its products or services. There are several ways you can do this.
Many businesses, such as hairdressers, pubs and restaurants use a standardised price list that remains the same for every customer. Other businesses, such as mechanics, painters and decorators, have to provide tailored prices for the specific products or services a customer wants to buy. This is usually done with an estimate or a quotation. Businesses often price larger, more complicated projects through tender documents drawn up by the customer.
