Remuneration from the SVA Founder Partners to Members

In some cases the SVA may receive commission for members introducing business to selected Founder Partners, where this or any portion is then forwarded to the member it will be done by cheque or BACS payment. Any customers forwarded to the SVA or its Founder Partners should be encouraged to mention the name of that member as their ‘PASSIVE INTRODUCER’. Neither the SVA nor Founder Partner can ensure or guarantee any reward especially where there is no record of customers not mentioning a specific members name.
