PRICES


We intend to hold our prices for the duration of the list.  However our products are subject to climatology, harvest or catch, and we have to trade in Euros.  Therefore we need to reserve the right to change our payment prices with minimum notice.  This may happens sometimes, especially at harvest time.

TERMS AND PAYMENT


The prices quoted are exclusive of VAT where applicable.
Credit account payments will be due in accordance with any agreed terms set between the seller and the buyer, these agreed terms will be subject to change at any point by Mevalco (herein after called the Seller).
Overdue accounts: Interest at 2% per calendar month will be charged thereafter on all overdue accounts without any prejudice for our rights to pursue such outstanding sums.
Our standard credit account terms are payment 28 days from invoice date.  We are happy to settle your account through a single payment on the 14th of each month for all invoices raised on the previous month.
As credit accounts are costly to maintain, we prefer to keep to COD if we only trade with you occasionally, or have a small volume of business (less than £500 per month).
A new business, which cannot supply trade references would require a personal guarantee to be completed by the owner or chief executive of the business requesting credit.
New accounts start as COD, (or Pro Forma if COD is not practical) while we take up your references.
We regret that further orders will not be despatched whilst any overdue account remains unpaid and shall be liable to be put on stop until settlement is received.
