In the absence of specific payment terms invoices are due to be paid by the 25th of the month following the date of invoice. Accounts not paid by the due date will be liable to an interest charge of 2% per month. If the Purchaser should be in default of payment due to the Company, the Company shall have the right to suspend deliveries of Goods and Services.

Thereafter save as set out in clause 8 hereof and subject to the provisions of the Supply of Goods (Implied Terms) Act 1973 (as amended) the Company gives no warranty that anything supplied by it is fit for any purpose other than the normal purpose for which it is customarily supplied or that its quality, if new, is other than as warranted by the manufacturer, or if not new and has been inspected by the aforesaid is any better than can be expected for the price paid.
Cancellation of orders cannot be accepted without the prior agreement in writing of the Company.

If the Purchaser shall fail to take and pay for the Goods within 14 days of notification that what has been ordered is ready for delivery, the Company shall be at liberty to treat the contract as repudiated by the Purchaser and thereupon the deposit shall be forfeited without prejudice to the Company’s right to recover from the Purchaser by way of damages any loss or expense which the Company may suffer or incur by reason of the Purchaser’s default.
