2.4 Any amounts to be paid by the Customer under these Terms that are payment for “taxable supplies” as defined for GST purposes will, to the extent permitted by law, be increased so that the GST payable on the taxable supply is passed on to the recipient of that taxable supply.
3.1 Any order by the Customer shall be regarded as an offer to Primness incorporating these Terms and must be in such form and placed in accordance with such procedures as may be prescribed by Primness from time to time.

4.2 Primness reserves the right to request the Customer provide a deposit upon receipt of the order with the balance to be payable prior to delivery.

It is acknowledged that such cancellation fee will be calculated at 80% of the value of the order and Primness shall be under no obligation to deliver the cancelled order to the Customer under such circumstances.
4.5 Any expenses incurred by Primness in recovering any outstanding monies from the Customer including the cost of repossession and resale of the Products, debt collection agency fees and legal costs (full indemnity basis) will be paid by the Customer to Primness on demand.

Interest will be calculated daily and may be capitalised.
6. CREDIT FACILITY
6.1 Where the Customer has applied to Primness for credit, the Customer warrants that the information in the credit application is completely accurate and is supplied for the purpose of obtaining credit.

6.2 The Customer warrants that any person’s signature appearing on the credit application (if applicable) are duly authorised by the Customer to apply for credit and execute the credit application on behalf of the Customer.
6.3 Allowance to the Customer of time to pay, will not constitute a waiver by Primness of any of these Terms nor be construed as Primness granting credit facilities to the Customer. No credit facility will be granted to the Customer unless so stated by Primness in writing. Primness may, at any time in its sole discretion and without notice, terminate any credit arrangement with the Customer. Primness at its discretion may also continue its trading relationship with the Customer and require payment for any Orders on invoiced terms.
