I have a situation which is generally opposite case in most projects.
I am working on a client project, which I estimated would complete in 2 months max. But even after 5-6 months, the project is still not complete. Client is desperate is getting things done ASAP. And from my end, I am doing my best to get it done at the earliest.
Client is very understanding for the efforts that went into this project. Therefore he is insisting me to take more money for this project.
From my end, I am not accepting this for two reasons:
- Once I gave a quote to the client, it not fit business ethics (as per me) if I charge more to him. Obviously, its not his fault if the work estimated turns out to be more.
- Also, the project is being delivered late than the agreed date. So client is already suffering because of this.
Is it right to accept more money from client (I did not demand, client is offering)?
Obviously I am making a loss in this project as the work turned out more. But I do not want to put that responsibility on the client.
What would you do if you were in my position?
