We require payment to terms. Payment must be made on time, in full, and without any deduction, set off or counterclaim. An account remaining outstanding after 7 days will have a £20+VAT administration charge applied. In the event that an account is outstanding after 14 days, we will refer the matter to our debt collection agents, Daniels Silverman Limited, which will incur a surcharge of 20% of the debt, plus VAT at the prevailing rate. You agree that you will be legally liable to pay us that surcharge, and that payment of the same can be enforced against you in court.
