Your annual subscription for HR Assist will start when HR Assist confirms your payment and will continue for a period of one year. Annual subscriptions purchased on the HR Assist Online Platform are either annually at the beginning of the subscription, quarterly in four equal payments commencing on your purchase date, or monthly in twelve equal payments commencing on your purchase. When you purchase an annual subscription, auto-renew is automatically selected in your HR Assist Account. At the end of the annual subscription period, HR Assist will sign you up and bill you for an additional subscription term of one year at then-current pricing. If you do not wish your subscription to auto-renew, you may uncheck the auto-renew box in your HR Assist Account prior to the end of your current subscription term.
HR Assist provides several levels of plan and included services.
If you wish to upgrade to a more inclusive plan, access to your upgraded plan starts when your payment to HR Assist has been confirmed and will continue for the remainder of your subscription year. You will be charged at the higher rate for any future payments and charged for the difference in plan cost if you have paid for an annual or quarterly subscription. Any increase in the applicable membership price will take effect from the date of notification.
At the end of the upgrade plan period, HR Assist will sign you up and bill you for an additional upgrade plan term of one year at then-current pricing. If you do not wish your upgrade plan to auto-renew, you may uncheck the auto-renew box in your HR Assist Account prior to the end of your current upgrade plan term.
Any reduction in the applicable membership price (for example, where you downgrade to a lower-priced package or reduce the number of users on your account) will take effect in your next membership payment period following notification.
