RATE OF INTEREST (4.6)
The rate of interest to be applied on overdue invoices. This will be the amount above the base rate of the specified bank from time to time in force.
See below for information on the EC Directive on late payment.
EC DIRECTIVE ON LATE PAYMENT
This document contains clauses entitling the Seller to payment within 30 days of receipt of invoice and to interest on late payment at a specified rate above the base rate of a nominated bank.
The amendments to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts [Interest] Act 1998 came into force on 7th August 2002, ensuring that the UK late payment laws meet the requirements of the EC Directive on late payment. The Act provides for a mandatory 30 day credit period and late payment interest at the rate of 8% above the Bank of England Base Rate where there are no written 'terms and conditions of credit sale' between supplier and purchaser.
Where two parties agree on a rate of late payment interest - contractual interest - the Act will not apply. However, if default arises and the rate agreed is not considered to be a 'substantial remedy', the courts will act in favour of the aggrieved party who has a right to either a better remedy or the basic remedy offered within the Act. This should be borne in mind when specifying a rate of interest.
NAME OF BANK (4.6)
