In such case, we will endeavour to deliver a similar replacement product, within the estimate provided. If we are unable to do so, we will notify you and seek to agree on an alternative option.
4.5. We reserve the right to invoice you further charges in addition to the Fees where circumstances arise that result in us doing additional work or incurring additional costs outside of the scope covered by the Fees specified in our Proposal. We will not invoice you for such further charges where the additional work or costs were caused by our fault, or where we have expressly stated in our Proposal that the specified Fees cover any additional work or costs.
4.6. Without limiting paragraph 4.5, the circumstances in which we reserve the right to invoice you further charges include:
a) where our staff are required to work outside normal business hours;
b) where you require amendments to our standard forms of promotional material, report formats or information materials to suit your requirements;

5.2. If payment of any of our invoices is outstanding beyond 60 days from the date of our invoice, we reserve the right to immediately suspend delivering, or preparing for the delivery of, the Services to you.

5.3. If you do not pay us any amount, we have invoiced you by the due date for payment, finance fees may apply.
