7.1 All quoted prices are inclusive of supply cost as well as labour fees based upon our best estimate of expected installation time. These prices are fixed and will not be changed irrespective of the actual time taken to complete the installation, unless the time taken is significantly different from the estimated time and a change in quoted price is agreed to by both the Customer and Aussie Cabling.
7.2 Additional charges may occur if during the performance of the quoted duties Aussie Cabling discovers problems which were not immediately apparent in the first instance and additional configuration, diagnostic, supply and / or installation work is required to be conducted which was not specifically included in the quote.
7.3 Circumstances may also be discovered which prevents work from being completed as quoted and the Client agrees to pay in accordance with Aussie Cabling's prevailing costs, rates and charges at the time of the quote for any alternative configuration, diagnostic, supply and / or installation work needing to be done to complete the quoted work.

7.5 Aussie Cabling is unable to provide a fixed fee quote for all types of diagnostic and / or installation work where we are unable to estimate the amount of time required to complete that work. In these situations, the Customer agrees to pay in accordance with Aussie Cabling's prevailing costs, rates and charges at the time of the work.
7.6 For all work quoted at over $1000, Aussie Cabling requires a 30% deposit to be paid before specific items will be ordered and an installation date confirmed. Payment of the balance is required immediately upon completion of the installation work. Non-payment of the outstanding balance within 5 business days of completion of any configuration, diagnostic, supply and / or installation work will result in late payments fees being charged (see Section 9).

9. Invoicing and Payment
9.1 Payment is due upon completion of any configuration, diagnostic, supply and / or installation work, via cash, credit card or bank tranfer, unless alternative payment arrangements have been requested and agreed to by Aussie Cabling prior to the commencement of the configuration, diagnostic, supply and / or installation work. Business Customers may request the issuing of a 28 day invoice prior to the commencement of any configuration, diagnostic, supply and / or installation work. The issuing of a 28 day invoice is solely at the discretion of Aussie Cabling and carries a fee of $30 or 3% of the balance of the invoice (which ever is the greater).
9.2 Non-payment of any outstanding amount, by the due date will result in a late payment administration fee of $20 being added 5 business days after the invoice was due. An additional $27.50 late payment administration fee will then be added for each additional 7 day period and subsequent reminder notice that is sent whilst any amount remains outstanding. Interest will also be charged on any outstanding balance and late payment administration fees, at 18% per annum, whilst they remain unpaid.
9.3 The Customer is not entitled to any retention or otherwise retain any amount due to Aussie Cabling. All payments are to be made without deduction or equitable or other off set whatsoever.

At all times, the Customer will allow Aussie Cabling access to the premises occupied by the Customer during normal business hours and to the goods in order to inspect the goods and retake possession of the goods at any time prior to payment in full of the price payable for all goods supplied by Aussie Cabling to the Customer, including installation fees and for any other monies payable by the Customer to Aussie Cabling.
9.5 The Customer indemnifies Aussie Cabling for any liability or loss it suffers seeking to exercise its rights of access and retaking possession.
