2. BILLING, PAYMENT AND VAT

You will be required to enter into a Direct Debit arrangement with us. You will receive a monthly itemised bill, on which will be printed an advance notice period stating when your payment will be collected. If you elect to pay by Direct Debit, the advance notice period will be a minimum of fourteen days from the Tax Point printed on your bill. Please notify Marina Telecom immediately if you think there may be an error in the itemised bill by contacting our Customer Service Centre.

Payment will be due on presentation of the direct debit to your designated bank.

An additional fee of £40 (one off) will be charged should the customer terminate ADSL / FTTC service. After the 90 day notice period it will normally take 10 working days for BT to deactivate the service. We may terminate our provision of the Marina Telecom Service to you on one month’s prior written notice to you.

  • you fail to make any payment in relation to the Marina Telecom Service within 30 days of the due date;

  • bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings are brought against you or you make an arrangement with your creditors or a receiver or administrator is appointed over any of your assets or you go into liquidation.

If we terminate or suspend our provision to you of the Marina Telecom Service under this paragraph we will do so without prejudice to our rights to claim for any damage to us resulting from your breach of these Terms and Conditions. On termination or cancellation howsoever occasioned all monies outstanding in connection with our provision of the Marina Telecom Service to you are payable.
