Terms of Trade
All invoices are payable in advance. If the invoice is not paid within 30 days after the due date and the work – whether it be GST, Tax work, Financial Statements or any other type of work) has been performed by us and is completed for you, our debt recovery agency charge you collection costs of at least 25% of the unpaid portion of the price, but not less than $100.00. Where the total agency, legal and other costs arising from recovery of any amount owing exceeds the debt recovery fee charged, our agent is also entitled to recover such additional costs from you. This clause is intended to be for the benefit of and be enforceable by our debt recovery agency under the Contracts (Privacy) Act 1982.
You agree to indemnify Slater Chartered Accountants against all costs, whether commission, legal fee or otherwise, incurred by you or your duly authorised agents relating to any moneys, goods and services that may be outstanding from time to time pursuant to the terms of this agreement. Any costs whatsoever not recoverable from the invoiced entity will be personally recoverable from the instructing person requesting the work/invoice.
You agree that the terms of trade are strictly settlement on or before the start of work for you and Slater Chartered Accountants will be entitled to charge interest at the rate of 24% per annum (2 % per month) on all amounts that have not been paid in full by the commencement of the work done for you, or from due date of the invoice should forward calculation of the invoice not be practical. These interest costs are additional to any collection costs.
Any costs incurred in the collection of payment will be your responsibility.
