No contract for the sale of goods or services shall arise until the seller despatches the goods to the purchaser or the purchaser notifies the seller in writing of its acceptance of the seller's quotation (whichever shall first occur).

Nothing in these conditions shall affect the statutory rights of any consumer.

The seller reserves the right to revise prices prior to despatch of goods to reflect any direct or indirect increase in costs. If the seller revises the price the purchaser will be informed prior to despatch or provision of the service and have the option to cancel the order. If the purchaser cancels the order due to price revision any money they have paid will be refunded in full.
WITS are currently not VAT registered, and as such all prices are as per the current prevailing VAT laws.
In the case of consumer sales, payment must be made in full before despatch of any goods.
In the case of service sales, payment is due in full on the terms of credit agreed which shall generally be 14 days and not exceeding 30 days from the date of invoice, unless previously agreed in writing. Time for payment shall be of the essence and any failure to pay shall entitle the seller at its option to treat the contract as repudiated by the purchaser or to delay delivery of further goods or services until paid (in addition to any other remedy).
If any act or proceedings shall be commenced in which the purchaser’s solvency is concerned, all moneys under any transaction covered by these conditions shall become immediately due and payable.
The price of goods or services supplied by WITS is confidential between the seller and the purchaser, and should be treated as such. Discounts or charges applied to a contract or customer are applicable to that contract or customer only. All goods remain the property of Warsash IT Solutions Ltd until complete and full payment is recived.
For business clients our remuneration terms for goods are 75% on order, a further 15% on delivery to our premises (for configuration if required) and the last 10% on delivery to the purchaser.
In the case of services our terms are strictly 14 days from the date of the Invoice, or as per prior agreement. Additionally we reserve the right to part invoice on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis as is required for longer projects, unless prior agreement and arrangements have been made. Again these part invoices are strictly on a 14 day payment from the date of the invoice.
We also reserve the right to proformer invoice for some services and goods which may require payment prior to the start of any project to retain our services or confirm goods. These cost will be deducted from the final project payment.
Additionally any expenses (travel, accommodation, subsistence) incurred as part and parcel of completing the contract, where not included in the cost price are also to be reimbursed as part of any invoice.
