Customers who have an approved Credit Account must make payment within 30 days from the end of the month of the invoice date and if at any time sums of money are overdue, the whole debt then becomes due and AB Industries Australia Pty Ltd shall be at liberty to sue for the recovery of the whole debt.

It is the discretion of AB Industries Australia Pty Ltd as to whether this credit account increase request is offered and approved.

If the Purchaser does not abide by AB Industries Australia Pty Ltd terms and conditions of the sale then AB Industries Australia Pty Ltd reserves the right to change the credit limit originally offered to the Purchaser or/as well as discontinue the Credit Account, which means the Purchaser must then be classed as a COD (cash on delivery) Customer.
