Data Errors & Liability

e-BAS Accounts will make every effort to ensure that no errors are made when processing Clients’ accounts. E-BAS Accounts will not accept responsibility for data or information received from Clients which may lead to possible errors occurring.

Clients must review all work completed by e-BAS Accounts within 7 days of it being returned to them and any necessary changes must be brought to our attention immediately. After 7 days no liability for any errors will be accepted by e-BAS Accounts.

Payment Methods

Cash, bank cheque, direct bank transfer, PayPal and major credit cards Visa and MasterCard are all acceptable methods of payment. American Express Card is not currently accepted. We encourage payment for bookkeeping packages be via a direct debit arrangement although this is not mandatory.

 

Payment Terms

If a bookkeeping agreement directs Clients to pay hourly fees i.e. non-bookkeeping package services, then our terms are payment in full within 7 days from the date of invoice. Clients receiving non-bookkeeping package services will be invoiced on a fortnightly basis until the bookkeeping agreement has ceased. Clients choosing to purchase bookkeeping packages will be required to pay one month in advance on the first day of each month preferably via means of direct debit however, this is not compulsory. Bookkeeping packages are supplied without contracts or any minimum periods. e-BAS Accounts will provide a monthly invoice to Clients who purchase any package. Clients wishing to cease purchase of bookkeeping packages must advise e-BAS Accounts that they wish to do so in writing at least 5 days before the end of any month. Those Clients paying via direct debit must provide written notification that they wish to cancel the direct debit arrangement as it will continue until such notification is received by e-BAS Accounts. All goods remain the property of e-BAS Accounts until paid for in full.

 

Prices shown on e-BAS Accounts website are in Australian dollars and are GST-inclusive.

 

Outstanding Debts

Monies that remain outstanding by the due date will incur late payment interest at the rate of 2% on the outstanding balance until such time as the balance is paid in full and final settlement. If the debt becomes 30 days past due:  15% interest fee will be applied to the total amount owed; 45 + days past due: e-BAS Accounts will cease all services and any agreement/s will be placed on hold until the Client has paid the total amount owed plus any applicable interest fees.

 

We reserve the right to seek recovery of any monies remaining unpaid 60 days from the date of invoice via collection agencies and/or through the Small Claims Court. In such circumstances, you shall be liable for any and all additional administrative and/or court costs.

 

Bounced cheques will incur a $25.00 charge to cover banking fees and administrative costs. In an instance of a second bounced cheque, we reserve the right to terminate any agreement/s and, if agreed to, we shall insist on future cash transactions only. Consequently, all bookings and/or transactions and agreements entered into will cease with immediate effect until such time as any and all outstanding monies are recovered in full.

 

Termination of Agreements, Cancellations and Refunds Policy

Both the Client and e-BAS Accounts have the right to terminate any Bookkeeping Agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. No refunds shall be offered, where a service is deemed to have begun and is, for all intents and purposes, underway. Any monies that have been paid to us which constitute payment in respect of the provision of unused services shall be refunded. Clients must notify e-BAS Accounts in writing if they intend to cancel any bookkeeping agreement and/or package service.
