- Notwithstanding any other clause of these terms and conditions of sale, if any supply by INTERGLASS is subject to Goods and Services Tax (“GST”), the Customer must, unless the price on the Quotation expressly states that GST is included, pay an additional amount to INTERGLASS. The additional amount:
- is equal to the price payable by the Customer for the relevant supply multiplied by the prevailing GST rate; and
- is payable at the same time and in the same manner as the price for the supply to which the additional amount relates.
- The Customer must pay to INTERGLASS all charges, duties, imposts, taxes (including any goods and services taxes and sales taxes) and similar amounts payable in relation to the sale or supply of any products or services by INTERGLASS to the Customer.

- Delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to occur when they are handed to the Customer or his representative or are delivered to the premises or site or carrier nominated by the Customer and the Goods shall thereafter be at the Customer’s risk.
- Upon the signing of a delivery docket and/or works order form unless the contrary is noted in that docket, the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered in good order and condition and if no person is present to sign the delivery docket then the Goods will be deemed to have been delivered in good order and condition. To the extent permitted by law, the Customer may only return Goods if a shortage, damage or other fault at the time of delivery is reported by the Customer to INTERGLASS within 24 hours of delivery and confirmed in writing within 7 days of such report.
- The Customer agrees to accept delivery of the Goods or to make alternative delivery arrangements within 7 days of INTERGLASS notifying the Customer that the Goods are available for delivery. To the extent permitted by law, INTERGLASS reserves the right at its absolute discretion to charge a minimum fee of $50 plus 2% of order value per week or part thereof, if the Customer fails to accept or make alternative arrangements for delivery within 7 days of being advised that delivery is ready.
- Where the parties have agreed that the Customer will advise INTERGLASS of a “load date” (being a date for delivery), the Customer must:
- give sufficient notice of the load date (being not less than the standard published lead time for the Goods to be manufactured and delivered); and
- ensure that the load date is not more than 90 days after the date of the Order.
- To the extent permitted by law, the Customer shall be responsible to INTERGLASS for any extra costs (which term shall include actual costs and imputed costs for storage, handling or demurrage) incurred by INTERGLASS as a result of failure of the Customer to take delivery of the Goods at the time and place specified. INTERGLASS will be entitled to a lien over the Goods until such costs have been paid in full.
- If the Customer is required to give INTERGLASS notice of a load date under clause 6.iv, and fails to do so within 90 days after placing the Order, INTERGLASS reserves the right to:
- review and vary the price payable by the Customer under the Quotation to the extent permitted by law, if INTERGLASS considers it reasonable to increase those prices to reflect INTERGLASS’s then current prices for such Goods (or equivalent Goods), in which case the Customer must pay the difference on demand; and/or
- supply to the Customer equivalent Goods to those described in the Quotation but which may contain slight variations in design. Such variations will not materially affect the dimensions, operation or appearance of the Goods. INTERGLASS must inform the Customer of such variations at the time of delivery of the Goods.
- If the Customer fails to accept any part of the Goods which INTERGLASS has dispatched in conformity with the Contract and such part of the Goods is returned to INTERGLASS and re-dispatched subsequently, then INTERGLASS may, to the extent permitted by law, require the Customer to pay on demand a charge equal to double the current delivery charge.
- It is the Customer’s responsibility on delivery to ensure that all products conform to its specification and requirements and no claims will be accepted for defects ascertainable on delivery in respect of products not confirming to the Customer’s written specifications and requirements, unless made in writing within 14 days after delivery. ix. Any claim by the Customer that any products or services invoiced by INTERGLASS have not been delivered to or received by the Customer must be communicated in writing by the Customer to INTERGLASS within 14 days that the products or services were invoiced, failing which the Customer will be deemed to have received delivery of the products or services.
- Products are at the Customer’s risk from delivery and property in the Goods supplied by INTERGLASS to the Customer will not pass to the Customer until the money owing for those Goods and any other money owing by the Customer to INTERGLASS has been paid. The Customer in the meantime takes custody of the Goods as the fiduciary agent and bailee of INTERGLASS.
- Where the Customer does not make payment in respect of specific Goods, payment must be treated as having been made first in respect of Goods which have passed out of the possession of the Customer, and then in respect of whatever Goods still in the possession of the Customer INTERGLASS elects.
- Until the Goods have been paid for in full:
- the Customer must store the Goods in such a manner as to show clearly that they are the property of INTERGLASS;
- the Customer may sell the Goods, in the ordinary course of its business, but only as fiduciary agent of INTERGLASS. Any right to bind INTERGLASS to any liability to a third party by contract or otherwise is expressly negatived. The Customer receives all proceeds, whether tangible or intangible, direct or indirect, of any dealing with the Goods (including any proceeds from insurance claims) in trust for INTERGLASS and must keep the proceeds in a separate bank account until the liability to INTERGLASS is discharged;
- Must keep all products insured against theft, damage, and destruction (and if the Customer fails to insure the products, INTERGLASS may do so and invoice the Customer for the cost of insurance) and
- the Customer agrees not to sell, assign, charge or otherwise encumber or grant any interest over any obligations which any third party may owe to the Customer as a result of the use, manufacture or resale of the Goods.
- The Customer irrevocably authorises INTERGLASS at any time, to enter any premises:
- upon which the Goods are stored to enable INTERGLASS to inspect the Goods and/or if the Customer has breached these terms and conditions, reclaim possession of the Goods;
- upon which the Customer’s records pertaining to the Goods are held to inspect and copy such records.
- The provisions of this clause apply notwithstanding any arrangement between the parties under which INTERGLASS or a related body corporate grants the Customer credit.
- The right to on-sell, deal or otherwise dispose of the goods in the normal course of trade may be revoked at any time by INTERGLASS and shall automatically cease if the Customer does not pay INTERGLASS, the Customer is unable to pay its debts as they fall due, the Customer ceases or suspends the Conduct of its business or threatens to, execution is levied on any of the Customer’s assets, a Receiver is appointed over any of the assets on the undertaking of the Customer or if a winding up order is made against the Customer or if the Customer goes into voluntary liquidation (otherwise than for the purpose of reconstruction or amalgamation) or administration or calls a meeting of, or makes any arrangement or composition with, creditors or commits any act of bankruptcy, or where the Customer is in default of any of its obligations to INTERGLASS, and all amounts immediately become due and payable.
