Each order or acceptance of a quotation for goods by the Buyer from the Seller shall be deemed to be an offer by the Buyer to buy goods subject to these conditions. No order placed by the Buyer shall be deemed to be accepted by the Seller until a written acknowledgement of order is issued by the Seller or (if earlier) the Seller delivers the goods to the Buyer. No alterations shall take effect unless confirmed by the Seller in writing. No term, condition or warranty not recorded herein shall be binding on the Seller, except where such is necessarily imported into the contract under any Statute or Common Law.
Unless otherwise stated, any quotation issued by the Seller will remain valid for 30 days only from its date provided that the Seller has not previously withdrawn it.
i Errors and omissions are subject to correction.
ii Unless otherwise stated in writing, prices charged will be those prices set out in the Seller’s price list which is in force at the date of placing the order.
iii Unless otherwise specified, prices include the supply and delivery only of goods but not for their off-loading.
Iv All prices are exclusive of VAT which will be charged as applicable.
With all first orders and whenever else specified by the Seller, the Buyer shall pay the Seller in full as a condition precedent to despatching the goods. In all other cases, unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Seller, payment must be made in full by not later than the end of the month following the month of despatch. Time for payment shall be of the essence.
Should the Seller be prevented by the Buyer from effecting delivery on the agreed due date, the full price of the goods shall become payable as if the goods had been delivered.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment shall be made in the currency as set out on the invoice.
The Buyer shall make all payments due under the contract in full without any deduction whether by way of set-off or counterclaim and no sums shall be deducted from the contract price unless any such discount has been separately agreed with the Seller. If deliveries are spread over a period, each consignment will be invoiced as despatched and each invoice will be treated as a separate account and be payable accordingly.
Failure to pay any invoice in accordance with these terms or with terms as may be agreed separately shall entitle the Seller to suspend further deliveries and work on the same order and on any other order from the Buyer without prejudice to any other right which the Seller may have.
