Payment of Accounts
A deposit is required from any new client before any work is carried out. It is the Higher Images Inc. policy that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by Higher Images Inc. or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 30 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with Higher Images Inc.
Once a deposit is paid and work completed you are obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due.
If accounts are not settled or Higher Images Inc. have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the related website may be denied and web pages removed, we will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment, nonpayment can result in county court judgments (ccj’s) being added to the client’s credit rating.
Following consistent nonpayment of an invoice our Solicitors will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further and if need be, to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.
