If the parties have negotiated fees without expressly accounting for the then-current Fee Reduction Taxes and the parties later determine that such taxes are in fact required (or have increased or decreased during the course of this Agreement), then the fees payable by Company under this Agreement shall be adjusted to the extent necessary to ensure that, after such Fee Reduction Taxes are applied, SugarCRM receives and retains, a net amount equal to the fees that SugarCRM would have received and retained absent the deductions required for the Fee Reduction Taxes. The newly adjusted fees will be documented in writing.
