The customer’s right to possession of the goods shall cease if he, not being a company, fails to comply with a statutory demand or if he, being a company, does anything or fails to do anything which would entitle a receiver to take possession of any assets or which would entitle any person to present a petition for winding up. HK may for the purpose of recovery of its goods enter upon any premises where they are stored or where they are reasonably thought to be stored and may repossess the same. It will be assumed that where the buyer purchases similar goods from the company on a regular basis that a stock rotation system has operated, and goods still held relate to invoices still outstanding for which full payment has not been made.

Interest Charges on Late Payments
When the customer does not complete payment within the agreed credit period, the customer shall pay interest at the rate of 1% per month or part month on the outstanding balance until payment is received in full.


49×14 reserves the right to decline to trade with any company or person. Official orders from local authorities, schools, universities, hospitals and other institutions will only be accepted via the fax or post. Please do not send faxed copies of official orders in addition to actual orders through the post as this risks the order being duplicated.


Orders will be despatched to the customer on location of the related event. 49×14 reserves the right to deliver by instalments should any products be out of stock, although the customer will be informed in such an event.
