Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions For Trading
JRP Distribution Ltd supplies goods only subject to these terms and conditions and any person (herein after called ‘The Buyer’) supplied by JRP Distribution Ltd (herein after called ‘The Company’) accept that these terms and conditions will govern all contractual relations between them to the exclusion of any terms contained in any of the buyers documents even if the same purport to provide that the buyers own or some other terms prevail.
No employee or other person acting or purporting to act on behalf of the company is authorised to agree or effect any alteration in these terms or to make or give any representation or warranty in relation to the goods save only that a Partner or Director of the company may in writing agree such alterations or to make representation or warranties.
Payment of Accounts
All accounts must be paid no later than the 30th day of the month following invoice date. A statement will be sent detailing all invoices and credits during the month. In the event of default in payment the company reserves the right to suspend or cancel credit facilities and to charge interest at 4% above minimum lending rate at weekly intervals on the overdue portion of the account until the arrears are cleared.
In the event of payment default, the entire outstanding balance (Interest included) will become due for payment immediately, whether the due date for the entire amount has been reached or not. Any interest levied will also be considered as an overdue amount and as such will also attract interest at the same rate if the account is not immediately brought in line with the agreed terms.
Bad Debt Recovery
We understand and will exercise our statutory right to claim interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the late payment legislation (Late Payment of Commercial Debts Act 1998) if we are not paid according to our agreed credit terms.
Goods specially ordered/made/manufactured cannot be accepted for credit.
For all other Goods we only accept returns which have been mis-supplied or are faulty, unless authorised by a Director. Non faulty returns will be subject to a 20% handling charge. Any goods returned should be accompanied with the relevant invoice details.
Damage or Shortage
Damage or shortage of goods found on delivery must be notified to the company, not to the carrier, agent or servant, within 48 hours of receiving delivery. All boxes must be inspected for damage prior to signing for their delivery. Failure to do either of the above will free the company from any liability in this respect.
Normally goods will be delivered carriage paid in Mainland UK. The company reserves the right to charge for any special delivery and / or deliveries of small value. No liability will be accepted for non-delivery or delay in delivery.

Fitness For Purpose
The company takes every care with regard to the quality and standard of the manufacture of the goods it supplies as far as it is able but as they are used for a multiplicity of purposes the company has no control over the method of their application or use, the company excludes so far as it may legally do so any condition or warranty implied by statute or otherwise as to the fitness of its goods for any particular purpose. Any technical co-operation between the company, its suppliers and the buyer shall not affect this condition, which the employees or agents have no authority to vary by express words or otherwise. Under no circumstances shall the company be liable for the loss of profit revenue or contract or other consequential loss or damage however caused.
Reservation of Title
Notwithstanding delivery and passing of the risk, legal and beneficial ownership shall remain with the company until full payment for the goods has been made. Until ownership passes the buyer shall hold the goods as bailee for the company and must keep the goods free from any charge lien or other encumbrance. The buyer shall have no possession of the goods but shall at all times remain accountable to the company on a fiduciary basis in respect of the goods or the proceeds of the sale of the goods until payment in full has been made to the company. The company and its associate companies may also enter upon the premises of the buyer to repossess such goods and if unable to different goods supplied and not paid for then in stock rotation principle of ‘first in, first out’ shall apply and any goods remaining in the buyers possession shall be deemed those most recently delivered.
Prices shall be as a ruling at the date of dispatch. Prices may be increased by the company to the extent necessary to enable the company to recover increases in cost incurred by it prior to the date of dispatch.
Quotations do not constitute an offer and shall not bind the company until an order has been placed and accepted.
All orders whether oral or written are subject to these terms but nothing in these terms shall be deemed to affect the statutory rights of the customer.
The company does not recognise any terms and conditions supplied by the buyer, unless specifically acknowledged and agreed in writing. Execution of, compliance with or implementation of order does not imply acceptance of the buyer’s terms and conditions.
Unfair Contract Terms Act
The company has drawn these terms and conditions of business in light of the unfair contract terms act 1977 and considers them to be fair and reasonable and its prices are based on contracts made on those conditions. If the purchaser considers these term to be unreasonable they must inform the company in writing before any contract is made, otherwise they will be deemed to have accepted that the companies terms are fair and reasonable.
