TERMS OF PAYMENTS
Initially on becoming a member of (BAKO) Western Ltd., the terms of payment are cash on delivery until satisfactory references are received. Once references have been received the following options are available:
1) Payment on delivery will entitle you to take 2% discount on invoices before VAT is added. If this office is informed that you wish to take advantage of this way of payment arrangements can be made to show this on your invoice.
2) Payment within 21 days of invoice date will allow a 1% discount on invoices before VAT is added. This option is an alternative to payment on delivery. To apply to receive this discount please contact our Credit Control team.
3) A monthly account is another form of payment. No discount is allowed and these accounts must be settled by the 23rd of the month following statement. Failure to make payments by the end of the month could lead to discontinuation of supplies until the account is settled.
At the end of the financial year, if profits have been made, payment of a rebate on all purchases throughout the year will be made to members holding £100.00 in shares and having paid strictly to terms during that period. Failure to keep to terms will automatically disqualify members from payment of rebate.
