"As can be seen from your statement with regard to further costs, you are evidently no longer demanding a blanket acceptance of all costs."

8 hrs
unquestioned acceptance


Explanation:
As your statement regarding additional costs shows, you now quite obviously (reject to) accept to take over all costs without questioning them.

The German sentence is somewhat hosed:
Either it is "GEHEN Sie ... von einer ...übernahme aller Kosten AUS."
or it might be "SEHEN Sie ... von einer ...übernahme aller Kosten AB."
