5. Charges and Payment

5.1 At Our sole discretion the Charges shall be:

(a) as indicated on any invoice/s furnished to You by Us; or

(b) fixed for the duration of any fixed contract term, as specified on any supply agreement,

quotation, order, invoice or other document provided by Us to You; or

(c) Our quoted Charges (subject to clause 5.2) which will be valid for the period stated in the

quotation or otherwise for a period of thirty (30) days.

5.2 We reserve the right to amend the Charges:

instructions, is requested (including, but not limited to, additional work required due to

hidden or unidentifiable difficulties not evident prior to provision of the Services, any request

to investigate and/or repair any faults or defects outside Our normal business hours, etc.);

(b) as a result of increases beyond Our reasonable control in the cost of materials or labour

(e.g. third-party service provider’s costs, etc.), or due to currency exchange rates.

5.3 At Our sole discretion, a non-refundable deposit may be required.

5.4 Time for payment for the Services being of the essence, the Charges will be payable by You

on the date/s determined by Us, which may be:

(a) by way of monthly instalments in accordance with Our payment schedule; and

(b) the date specified on any supply agreement, quotation, order, invoice or other document

provided by Us to You as being the date for payment; or

the month of the date of any invoice/s and/or statement furnished to the You by Us.

5.5 Payment may be made by electronic/on-line banking, or by any other method as agreed to

not cease until:

(a) You have paid Us all amounts owing to Us; and

(b) You have met all Your other obligations due to Us in respect of all agreements between You

and Us.

5.8 Our receipt of any form of payment shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of

payment has been honoured, cleared or recognised, and until then Our ownership or rights in

respect of the Services, and this contract, shall continue.

5.9 If You pay any Charges in advance and they are varied, or the Services are terminated, We

will refund You any overpayment, and You have to pay Us any underpayment. This clause does

not detract from any obligations You may have to give notification to terminate the Services,

or to pay early termination fees, where applicable.

5.10 At any time We can require You to provide some form of security, for example a security

deposit, a charge or bank guarantee, or pay some or all of the Charge for the Services in

advance. We will only do so if We have reasonable concerns about Your credit worthiness or

have reasonable grounds for believing that We may not be paid for the provision of the

Services to You. In the case of new customers, We can refuse to provide You the Services until

We receive the security. In the case of existing customers, if You do not provide the security

within fourteen (14) days of Our request, We can restrict, suspend or terminate the provision

of the Services to You in addition to any other rights We may have. If You terminate the

Services, We will return the security deposit or advance payment to You, less any outstanding

Charges owing to Us within a reasonable time. Our acceptance of any form of security or

advance payment does not affect any other rights or obligations under this contract.

5.11 You shall not be entitled to set off against, or deduct from the Charges, any sums owed or

claimed to be owed to You by Us, nor to withhold payment of any invoice because part of that

invoice is in dispute. Where You, acting reasonably, dispute any portion of the Charges, You

must do so in writing before the due date for payment thereof, and may withhold the disputed

portion only until the dispute is resolved by both You and Us. Any non-disputed Charges may

not be withheld.

printed in your invoice, so that Your payment may be allocated correctly to Your account.

costs of early termination and will depend on the Services acquired by You and the date of
