Value Added Tax

Vat is charged at the prevailing rate to all items marked ‘20.0% S’ in the catalogue. Zero Rated are all marked with ‘0.0%Z’.

 

Payment

“Once account approved all invoices are to be paid within 30 days following delivery. Any bank charges incurred, such as unpaid cheques, will be passed to the buyer. Diverse Fine Food reserves the right to remove the credit facility if payments are frequently late or unpaid. Accounts passed to the debt collectors will automatically be returned to pro forma and excess charges incurred by so doing passed to the customer. We do accept credit card payments, please be aware these are subject to a fee of 2%.”

 

Title of Goods

All goods will remain the property of Diverse Fine Food until paid for in full, but the risk will pass to the buyer on delivery. Diverse Fine Food reserve the right to remove from the buyer’s premises all goods which have not been paid for by the due date, and the buyer is deemed to consent to Diverse Fine Food entering its premises for that purpose until payment is made in full.

 

Prices

Prices sometimes change at short notice, and Diverse Fine Food reserve the right to pass onto the buyer any price increase imposed by its supplier between the date of an order and the date of delivery of goods. However we will always endeavour to give 1 months notice of any price increases.
