Terms & Conditions
FORMATION OF CONTRACT
The contract between Krueger Limited and the purchaser comprises the confirmation of order signed by Krueger Limited (the ‘Order’) and these terms & conditions. Any other terms proposed by the purchaser are excluded.
PRICE & PAYMENT
The price and payment terms are set out in the quote/order/invoice. If payment terms are not set out in the quote/order/invoice, payment is due within Nett 30 days of the date of each invoice for trade customers; unless a separate agreement has been made. Krueger Limited will send out a mid-month and end of month statement advising of invoices due. If the customer identifies that an invoice is missing off the statement it is their responsibility to contact Krueger Limited and ask for a copy invoice before the payment is due, this does not extend the payment due date. Any trade accounts that are overdue will be put on immediate hold and no goods will be dispatched or works carried out until the account is back within the agreed limit. Any trade accounts that are late with payments on more than 3 occasions will have their credit account closed and all future invoices will be on a pro-forma basis. Trade customers that receive a settlement discount are only able to use it if paid within Nett 20 days. For retail customer’s payment is due on receipt of invoice. All installations require a deposit to the value of all materials to be used and full settlement 5 working days after completion.
Where the services include supply of materials or labour, the supplier may vary the agreed price to take account of any increased costs.
The Supplier reserves the right to charge interest on any overdue payment in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act. Krueger Limited will take legal action to recover any overdue debts and the customer will be liable for all costs.
