1. Prices

Stated or quoted prices are exclusive of GST.

You shall pay to the Company the amount of any GST that may be payable by the Company as a consequence of supply of the Goods as defined by the GST Act under and pursuant to these terms of trade (“Terms”), such payments to be made at the time when the relevant supply is deemed to take place under and pursuant to the relevant provisions for the GST Act.

Prices are subject to change without notice. We will invoice Goods at the prices ruling at the time you place your order.

You shall make all payments due to the Company without any deduction, whether by way of set-off, counterclaim, or any other equitable or legal claim.


2. Payment

Unless the Company has agreed in writing to open a credit account for you, you must pay for Goods in cash, direct credit or by approved credit card on placement of your order.

Where the Company has agreed to extend credit to you, you must pay in full by the 20th day of the month following the date of the invoice. You will not be considered to have paid until the payment has been fully cleared through the banking system into the Company’s bank account.
If the Company has agreed to accept your payment by direct debit from your bank account, you undertake to keep you bank account in sufficient funds to meet the direct debit. If any direct debit is reversed, the Company may refuse to supply any further goods until you have paid all outstanding sums in full.

The Company reserves the right to require payment of the whole or part of the price of the Goods before accepting any order or part order.
If your account becomes overdue, the Company reserves the right to place you account on a non-supply or cash only basis.

If you have not paid in full by due date, the Company may charge you interest compounding monthly on unpaid overdue balance at the rate of 15% per annum above the current overdraft rate charged by the Company’s bankers, and the Company may at its option charge costs (including collection costs and legal costs on a solicitor-client basis) and suspend delivery of further Goods until the account is paid.


3. Delivery

Although the Company will endeavour to meet any stated delivery date, it is not liable for, and you are not entitled to cancel its order for non-delivery or late delivery, howsoever caused, or failure to deliver by any specific method or by any particular vehicle, vessel or craft.

Delivery of the Goods occurs when the Goods are available for transportation from the company premises.

Notwithstanding the provisions in clause 6, the risk in the Goods passes to you on delivery.


4. Title and Risk - Personal Properties Security Act 1999

Title in the products does not pass in any circumstance until payment of the purchase price and all other amounts are made in full in respect of those products. It is expressly agreed that title to the products does not pass upon delivery or the giving and taking of possession and the vendor reserves the right to recover possession of the products and to enter upon the customer’s premises without notice for such purpose in the event of any default in payment. The customer grants to the vendor a security interest in all goods supplied under this contract, and their proceeds. At the request of the vendor, the customer will execute any documents and do anything else the vendor requires to ensure that the security interest created under these terms and conditions constitutes a first ranking perfected security over the goods and their proceeds of sale and the customer will supply all information the vendor requires to complete the financing statement or a financing change statement. The customer waives any right to receive a verification statement under the Act. The vendor and the customer agree that sections 114(1)(a), 116, 117(1)(c), 119, 120(2), 121, 125, 126, 127, 129, 131, 133 and 134 of the Personal Properties Securities Act 1999 do not apply to the security created by these terms and conditions.

Not withstanding that title does not pass, risk in the product passes upon the product being uplifted by or dispatched to the customer even if payment has not been made in full.
