Payment is due to RBP Ltd. Settlement must be received within 10 days as the services will typically have been delivered up to 30/60 days prior to the invoice being submitted. The title in the goods remains with RBP Ltd until the amount due is paid. RBP Ltd reserves the right to withhold further supplies in the event of amounts payable becoming due. This contract is subject also to the terms and conditions of use as detailed in the site at Where applicable VAT will be detailed on invoices at the appropriate rate.
