4. Price and Payment

4.1 Prices for Goods in the Supplier’s stock ready to be shipped will be established at the time the Order is accepted by the Supplier.

4.2 If the Customer places an order for Goods not in stock at the time of order (a “Backorder”) or the Customer places an order for scheduled delivery, such orders shall be irrevocable and the price for such Goods shall be the price established at the time the Backorder or scheduled delivery is accepted by the Supplier.

4.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Supplier reserves the right to increase its prices after acceptance of a Backorder or scheduled delivery due to an increase in its third party supplier’s price to the Supplier or an increase in direct costs to which the Supplier becomes subject (including without limitation costs resulting from currency fluctuation) but the Supplier shall only increase its price by such level as is necessary to reflect such increases.

4.4 Orders for direct shipment to the Customer’s customer may require the Customer's acceptance of additional terms including prepayment of the Order and will be subject to additional fees.

4.9 Should the Customer be required by any law or regulation to make any deduction on account of tax including but not limited to withholding tax or otherwise on any sum payable under the Contract, the price payable shall be increased by the amount of such tax to ensure that the Supplier receives a sum equal to the amount to be paid under the applicable Order.

4.10 If the Customer fails to make a payment due to the Supplier under the Conditions by the due date, then, without limiting the Supplier's remedies under clause 11, the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. Interest under this clause 4.10 will accrue each day at four percent (4%) a year above the Bank of England's base rate from time to time. The Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.

4.11 All amounts due under the Conditions shall be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

4.12 Where the Supplier has agreed to supply the Goods on credit, the Customer shall pay the price of the Goods within the stated timeframe of the date of the Supplier's invoice notwithstanding that title to the Goods has not passed to the Customer. The Supplier shall be entitled at its absolute discretion to alter payment terms (other than on concluded Orders) and withdraw or alter any credit limit granted at any time with notice. If the Customer exceeds its credit limit or fails to qualify for continued credit terms, the Supplier may, at its sole discretion, delay subsequent shipments or require prepayment until the Supplier determines that the Customer is once again qualified to receive credit terms.

4.13 The Customer shall provide the Supplier's Credit Department with copies any financial information which may assist with providing a credit facility. The Customer shall inform the Supplier promptly if there is a change of ownership or control of the Customer or its direct or indirect parent company (excluding changes of ownership of the shares of a publicly quoted company which do not result in a change in control of the company's board of directors or other governing board), a management buy-out, or all or a substantial part of the Customer's assets are sold or otherwise transferred to any non-affiliated company or member of the Customer's group of companies.

4.14 In the event Customer intends to sell, assign, factor or otherwise transfer any book debt owed to Customer or to enter into any form of invoice discounting arrangement, the Customer agrees to inform the Supplier in writing prior to entering into any such arrangements.

5.1 The Supplier shall endeavour to deliver Goods to the agreed delivery location (“the Delivery Location”) on the agreed delivery date.

5.2 Where the Supplier has agreed to ship Goods direct to the Customer's customer, any such shipment or performance shall be deemed to be delivery to the Customer and any refusal by the Customer's customer to accept delivery or performance shall be deemed to be a refusal by the Customer. It shall be the Customer's obligation to report any delivery discrepancies to the Supplier. The Customer shall bear all costs associated with the unjustified refusal of Goods. If the refusal is made on the grounds that the order was wrongly placed (i.e. wrong Goods, wrong pricing, etc.) and the refusal is accepted by the Supplier, the Supplier reserves its right to charge accordingly additional fees for return transportation and administrative expenses related thereto, and original carriage costs will not be reimbursed.

5.3 Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence.

5.4 If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods within three (3) Business Days of the Supplier notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready or attempts to effect delivery, then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Supplier's failure to comply with its obligations under the Conditions in respect of the Goods:

5.6 If the Supplier fails to deliver Goods by the relevant delivery date after being given a reasonable opportunity to remedy such delay, except to the extent that such delay is due by a third party for which the Supplier shall have no liability, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. The Supplier shall have no liability for any failure to deliver Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by:

(a) a delay from the manufacturer, third party supplier or other third party;

(b) a Force Majeure Event; or

(c) the Customer's failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.

5.7 The Supplier may deliver Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. The Customer may not cancel an instalment because of any delay in delivery or defect in another instalment.
