Therefore this increased price will only include a cost rise in relation to factors occurring which are beyond our reasonable control. However it is then your right if your wish, to cancel the purchase order for the goods within 7 days of any such notice. Any revised price will be exclusive of VAT which shall be due at the rate ruling on the date of our VAT invoice.

We may deliver the goods by separate instalments. We may raise a separate invoice and require payment for each instalment. Failure or refusal by you for any reason to pay for one of more of the said instalment on the due date shall entitle us (at our sole option):- without notice to suspend further deliveries of any goods pending payment in full; and/or treat the contract between you and us as repudiated.
