In accepting this Purchase Order, you accept these Terms and Conditions. No employee of the Company has authority to vary these Terms.
The Company will not under any circumstances authorise for payment any invoice you submit in connection with this Purchase Order where the number of this Purchase Order is not clearly shown. A copy of this Purchase Order attached to the invoice is acceptable. Neither will the Company authorise for payment an invoice where the value is greater than that of the corresponding Purchase Order.
Where the sum to be invoiced is likely to be greater than the value of the Purchase Order, you should as soon as possible advise the Company of a likely discrepancy. The Company may then at its discretion issue a further Purchase Order for the difference. Where there is no Purchase Order for an additional amount the Company reserves the right not to pay that additional amount. For your own protection therefore you should request an additional Purchase Order as soon as possible.
The Company will under no circumstances be liable for the payment of any sums to you in the absence of a Purchase Order or Orders.
Payment will be made in Sterling. Invoices rendered in currencies other than Sterling including Euros will be paid in the equivalent amount of Sterling converted at the rate prevailing at the time of issue of the Purchase Order.
