You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
4.5 Late payment interest
Failure to pay any amount which is due will entitle us to charge interest on the amount outstanding at an annual rate of three (3) per cent above the base rate of HSBC Bank from time to time, from on the due date until the date of actual payment (after as well as before any legal judgment against you).
