    GENERAL CREDIT TERMS

    For the full terms and conditions, refer to the Terms and Conditions of Trade on HorecaMarket.Global's website

    1. Payment: The Customer must pay for all purchases within 7 days from the date on which the invoice is generated, or within any alternative credit period granted in writing by HorecaMarket.Global. Amounts payable by the Customer under these Credit Terms must be paid in full without deduction, retention or set-off of any kind and for any reason.

    2. Interest and Administration fee: HorecaMarket.Global is entitled to charge the Customer:

    (a)  interest on amounts not paid within the credit period specified by HorecaMarket.Global at a rate equivalent to 3% p.a. above the annual business overdraft interest rate of its principal banker, as determined and calculated by HorecaMarket.Global, in its discretion; and

    (b) if any account remains unpaid at the end of the second month after the invoice is generated,an immediate amount the greater of $20.00 or 10.0% of the amount overdue for administration fees, which sum shall become immediately due and payable. The Customer acknowledges that this fee is a genuine pre-estimate by HorecaMarket.Global of the loss, costs and expenses which shall be incurred by reason of the Customer’s default in payment and the recovery thereof.

    3. Tax and other duties: Each amount payable by the Customer under these Trading Terms in respect of a Taxable Supply by HorecaMarket.Global is a GST exclusive amount and on receipt of a tax invoice the Customer must, in addition to that amount and at the same time, pay the GST payable in respect of that supply. “Taxable Supply” and “GST” have the meanings set out in the A New Tax System (Goods and Services) Act 1999 (Cth). Further, the Customer agrees and acknowledges that it is liable to pay any tax, duty, charge or other impost or levy made at any time by any local, state or Commonwealth government in connection with the Goods or this Agreement (including, without limitation) the Wine Equalisation Tax (WET).

    4. Withdrawal or Variation of Credit: HorecaMarket.Global may at any time, without the need to provide a reason, vary or withdraw any credit granted to the Customer. Where the Customer completes a further Application for a Commercial Trading Account, that Application will not be in derogation of but in addition to any previous general credit terms existing except as notified by HorecaMarket.Global (or any of its related entities, subsidiaries and assigns and as Trustee of any Trust) in writing.

    5. Charge over Customer’s Property: As security for payment  to HorecaMarket.Global of all moneys payable by the Customer and for the Customer’s obligations generally under these Credit Terms, the Customer charges in favour of HorecaMarket.Global the whole of the Customer’s undertaking, property and assets (including without limitation all of the Customer’s interests, both legal and beneficial, in freehold and leasehold land) both current and later acquired. The Customer irrevocably appoints each Officer as the Customer’s attorney to do all things necessary to create and register each such charge. Upon demand by HorecaMarket.Global, the Customer agrees to immediately execute a mortgage or other instrument in terms satisfactory to HorecaMarket.Global to further secure payment of the money payable by the Customer. If the Customer fails within a reasonable time of such demand to execute such mortgage or other instrument, then the Customer acknowledges that HorecaMarket.Global may execute such mortgage or other instrument as the Customer’s attorney pursuant to the appointment of HorecaMarket.Global as the Customer’s attorney set out in these Credit Terms.

    6. Suspension or Ceasing of Supply:

    (a)  HorecaMarket.Global may in HorecaMarket.Global's complete discretion and without incurring any liability to the Customer, cease or suspend supply of Products and Services to the Customer or amend these Credit Terms.

    (b)  Without limiting clause 6(a), if  an  Event  of  Default  occurs,  HorecaMarket.Global may, without prejudice to HorecaMarket.Global's other rights, call up moneys owed to HorecaMarket.Global by the Customer, retain all moneys paid on account, or cease further deliveries and recover from the Customer all loss of profits and other costs arising from the Event of Default and/or take immediate possession of any Products and Services for which payment remains outstanding.

    7. Liability of HorecaMarket.Global will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever suffered by the Customer as a  result of any act, omission or statement made by HorecaMarket.Global, its employees, contractors or agents.

    8. Certification: A statement signed by an Officer certifying the amount of any moneys payable by the Customer, or identifying any products and services, as being “unpaid for” is, in the absence of manifest error, conclusive and binding on the Customer.

    9. Notification of Change of Details: The Customer will provide written notice to HorecaMarket.Global of any change in the Customer’s structure or management, including any change of director, shareholder, partnership, trusteeship or address within 7 days of the change.

    11. Set-Off: HorecaMarket.Global may at any time set-off amounts owed by HorecaMarket.Global to the Customer against amounts owed by the Customer to HorecaMarket.Global.

    12. Property: 

    (a)  Where Products are to be supplied by way of sale, property in the Products shall not pass until the Customer has paid all money owing to HorecaMarket.Global in full. Risk in the Products passes to the Customer at the time ofdelivery.

    (b)  The Customer holds the Products as fiduciary bailee and agent for HorecaMarket.Global and must keep the Products physically separate from all other goods of the Customer, and clearly identified as owned by HorecaMarket.Global until payment of all moneys owed by the Customer to HorecaMarket.Global.

    (d)  If the Products are resold, or goods and/or services using the Products are manufactured and resold by the Customer, the Customer holds all of the book debts owed in respect of such sales and proceeds of such sales in trust for HorecaMarket.Global. Such part of the book debts and proceeds will be deemed to equal in dollar terms the amount owed by the Customer to HorecaMarket.Global at the time of the receipt of such book debts. The Customer must not assign or grant a  security  interest  in  respect  of  such  book  debts  without HorecaMarket.Global's prior written consent.

    (e)  If the Customer uses the Products in some manufacturing process of its own or of some third party, then the Customer shall hold such part of the proceeds of such manufacturing process as relates to such Products in trust for HorecaMarket.Global.  Such part shall be deemed  to equal in dollar terms the amount owing by the Customer  to HorecaMarket.Global and at the time of payment of such proceeds the Customer’s obligation to pay the amount owed for such Products will be discharged.
