Terms & Condition

Work and Visa Ltd Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale

The following terms shall be incorporated into each contract entered into between the Customer and Work and Visa Ltd.  for the supply of Services, except to the extent expressly varied by signed Service Agreements which shall take precedence over these Terms and Conditions.

1. Price

1.1   Unless GST-inclusive prices are quoted, quoted prices shall be increased by: (a)    the amount of any GST and other taxes and duties which may be applicable when the recipient of our services is based in New Zealand for the purposes of Services and Services taxation; and (b)    the amount of any increase in the cost of any items (including any change in currency exchange rates) affecting the cost of supply, production and/or delivery of the Services prior to the date of Delivery. 1.2   A contract is created and the Customer is bound to pay the price when Work and Visa, Ltd. accepts the Customer’s order in writing. Subject to clause 3.2, each accepted order shall constitute a separate contract. A quotation does not create a binding contract until the Customer places an order that is then accepted by CARTERS. 1.3   All quotes, estimates and pricing, unless otherwise specified, are valid for 30 days from the date of issue and may be subject to such further conditions as are expressly set out in the quote, estimate or pricing. 1.4   Work and Visa, Ltd. reserves the right at any time to alter any price lists and any such alterations to any price list shall be effective from the date specified by Work and Visa, Ltd. and shall apply to all orders accepted by Work and Visa, Ltd.  on or after that date.

Where the credit limit is exceeded, Work and Visa, Ltd.  may refuse to supply Services to the Customer. 2.3    The Customer may not withhold payment or make any deductions from or set off any amount against any Amount Owing without CARTERS’ prior written consent. 2.4    Any disputes or credit requests by the Customer relating to an invoice issued by Work and Visa, Ltd. for Services supplied must be received in writing within 30 days from the date of invoice.

Each instalment shall be treated as a separate contract subject to these Terms. Failure to fully deliver any instalment of the Services shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any contract relating to any other instalment of the Services. 3.3   Any time stated for delivery is an estimate only. Other than liability that cannot be excluded by law, Work and Visa, Ltd. is not liable for any delay in delivery.

4. Risk and Security

4.1    As security for all the Customer’s obligations under these Terms (including for payment of the Amount Owing and for the performance from time to time of the Customer’s other obligations to Work and Visa, Ltd.), the Customer grants to Work and Visa, Ltd. a Security Interest in all the Services Work and Visa, Ltd. agrees to sell to the Customer under any contract, together with the Proceeds of such Services.

6.1   If the Customer does not pay the Amount Owing by the due date: (a)    Work and Visa, Ltd. may charge, and the Customer must pay, default interest at the rate of 1.5% per month calculated daily on the Amount Owing from the due date until payment is received in full (both prior to and following any judgment obtained); and (b)    any rebates or discounts may be cancelled (whether or not previously credited). 6.2   If an Event of Default occurs: (a)    Work and Visa, Ltd. may suspend or terminate any contract; and (b)    any Amount Owing shall immediately become due and payable notwithstanding the due date for payment has not arisen; and (c)    Work and Visa, Ltd. is entitled to recover from the Customer all costs that Work and Visa, Ltd. may reasonably incur in attempting to collect the Amount Owing (including actual legal costs and expenses and costs of collection) and any other moneys owing by the Customer to Work and Visa, Ltd. from time to time, whether in relation to any contract or on any other account whatsoever.

7. Payment Validity

7.1   The Customer acknowledges that Work and Visa, Ltd. continues to supply the Customer on the condition that all payments received by Work and Visa, Ltd. from the Customer are made at a time when the Customer is able to pay its debts as they become due from the Customer’s own money. 7.2   The Customer further acknowledges that the Customer will not make any payments to Work and Visa, Ltd. with a view to giving Work and Visa, Ltd. a preference over any other creditors of the Customer.
