I am assuming you are talking about POSIX permissions. You should really be using ACL's. Depending on the server and its use with Windows, you could technically have
Owner - Admin - R/W
Group - Administrators - R
Other - None
Root will always have access to the files.
You can then make a group for the group / team/ company, and place them in the ACL with R/W permissions. If you have Windows workstations please let me know.

Yes they will, although I would never suggest having a group in POSIX and the same in the ACL. If it is 100% Mac enviroment, place them in the ACL.
If I were you I would also delete all previous ACL's in all the folders and then reapply all the new ones. If you do not clear them out, you will have "2 sets" for all folders and files. Can be messy.

Just to update you.
I had to remove all the ACL permissions via terminal.
sudo chmod -RN /directory_name/
When i reapplied the groups, i noticed i still had the same issue. So i ran the terminal command again and recreated the groups. Added the users to the new groups, applied that group to the shared file and it seems to be ok now. (Touch wood)
Thanks for your help

Ok great. Do not worry about having to run that command a few times, its normal for it not to pick up on all of them. I am not sure why that occurs, but it does. Glad to know it is working though.
