Debit order Terms
Payment is via debit order and paid for in advance for the services that you receive. The debit order will be processed on the second working day of every month. Failed debit orders will carry a penalty of R50 which will be added to your account. All customers will be supplied with a tax invoice to keep on record for tax purposes even though subscriptions are collected via debit order.
In circumstances where a debit order fails, services will be disabled immediately and the customer will be required to pay their arrears and the R50 debit order penalty before your services are re-enabled. Narcom reserves the right to reprocess failed debit orders at any time for the outstanding fees or any part thereof. Should the customer not use the services supplied during the month, this does not entitle the customer to stop the debit order.
Narcom will provide all customers with an invoice via email. Accounts are due within 30 days of invoice. (the "Due Date") All services are billed and payable in advance. An example: You will be invoiced on the 25th February for all your March services.
In the event of non-payment of an invoice by the stipulated Due Date, Narcom reserves the right to hold the customer liable for the total amount due pursuant to such invoice.
Narcom may stop the supply of new services to the customer and/or terminate current services held by the customer if payment of any invoice is not made by the Due Date, or if a petition for liquidation is filed by or against the customer, or if the customer goes out of business or announces intention to do so.
If the supply of new services is stopped or the existing services are terminated, the full outstanding balance becomes due and payable immediately.
If the customer pays the amount due in full, the customer may have their existing services re-activated and also purchase new services.
