"Oi Oi. A mate of a mate works for $BigCo and has loads of time on his
hands ... I reckon he can knock this out for 50 quid this afternoon -
mates rates innit. No questions asked. Cushty. Right? "

On a more serious note --

1. The minimum wage is £6/hour? - so at the very least you ought to be
willing to pay £300+ (if it's 50 hours of work?). That just leaves a
maximum budget .... (not that anyone knows what changes are required)

2. Given it's for a business and not a club/charity/school, your company
should be prepared to pay. Presumably they're going to earn / save
something from it after all - if not, why would they bother?

3. Additionally they should think about the maintenance of the code -
who is going to look after it / fix it when it breaks because PHP
deprecates mysql in 5.6 and so on ... or fix it up when it's
hacked/defaced because you didn't know how to escape data correctly (or


etc etc.
