Any court cost or fees will be added to the outstanding amount you owe. Alternatively the debt may be passed to an agency, which may involve a doorstep debt collector attending your property.
SECTION 3 -TRANSFERS
Should circumstances dictate that you need to change course dates the following will apply:
– No Fee over 4 weeks prior to the course. – 25% of the fees 4 and 2 weeks prior to the course. – 100% of the fees 2 weeks to the course start date. (To rebook you will need to pay the original course fee in full again)
All transfer requests must be made in writing to and will become effective when received by Action Training & Consultancy Services Ltd, any payments already made for course placements will be carried forward to the requested course transfer date and a new invoice will be generated for transfer fees incurred.
Transfers are only permitted when transferring the original course to a later date within a three month period – i.e. if the client wishes to transfer a health & safety course to the same health & safety course at a later date this is permitted.
An example of a transfer not being permitted would be if the client wishes to transfer from a health & safety course to a first aid course at a later date.
The First Aid course the client is transferring to will need to be booked as a new contract with Action Training & Consultancy Services incurring the course fee applicable to the course chosen.
The transfer fee applies to the original course booked. This example is not exhaustive and the over-riding factor is that transfers are only permitted when transferring the original course to a later date.
