Trading Terms and Conditions
All bookings must be confirmed in writing with a purchase order number(s) for the agreed work. When commissioning work with Blue Concept Training you agree to abide by all our terms and conditions without exception.
All fees are subject to VAT at the standard rate. Invoices will be issued on a monthly basis. Payment will be due 30 days after the invoice issue date. Failure to pay within this time period will evoke immediate withdraw of any discounts and the application of an additional late payment fee, calculated on 15% of the total invoice value. Should the invoice be unpaid beyond 40 days an additional late payment fee will be applied of £50 + vat per day, for every day over the standard 30 days payment date until the payment is credited to our account.
Cancellations will only be accepted in writing. Cancellation fees are applicable to the full value of a specified training programme calculated from commencement date:
• Long term commitment programme – see below.
• More than 45 days notice – Nil
• Less than 45 days and more than 30 days – 50%
• 30 days notice or less – 100%
In addition any unrecoverable costs will be passed on.
Cancellations – Long term commitment programme
A ‘long term commitment programme’ is defined as a training programme that is planned to be delivered over a four month period or more, and includes sixteen days training or more. All cancellations must be confirmed in writing. All work commissioned to take place in the subsequent 180 days following the cancellation date will be immediately chargeable including any unrecoverable costs.
Postponements are classed as cancellations unless rearranged dates can be made to enable the training to happen within 20 working days of the original training date. When a rearrangement is possible, any unrecoverable costs will be passed on. A course will only be rescheduled once; if the course fails to run on the rescheduled date it will be treated as a cancellation. When training is rescheduled an invoice will be raised and due for payment as if the programme was delivered on the original dates. In addition, any unrecoverable costs will be passed on.
Blue Concept Training reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any course for reasons of illness or other causes and will advise the client as soon as this change is known. Blue Concept Training will use all reasonable endeavours to avoid changes of this nature. We will not be liable for any loss or expense that the client incurs arising out of such changes.
