Pay your deferred account
The information below outlines the requirements by you for paying your deferred account.
Pay your account
We will email you a detailed account statement every second Wednesday. You must pay us within 7 days of getting your statement.
We only accept payment by direct debit.
If you adjust an import entry after we generate a statement, you will have to pay any differences in the next payment run.
If you don’t pay in time, we will:
- withdraw the facility from you
- add 5% to the unpaid amount
- add 2% for each month you don’t pay
- require you to pay any future duties before you get your goods
- use the security you gave us to pay the overdue debt.
We reserve the right to:
- take your goods and sell them to offset outstanding costs
- recover the debt from your importer
- take any other appropriate actions.
We will only reinstate your account when you have paid us in full. You must apply in writing.
