Paid services and invoicing

Bar Buddie shall invoice at the start of each billing period (recurring on the first day of each month or year). Invoices shall, unless otherwise agreed in writing, be paid within 14 days of receipt.
Bar Buddie will notify you in advance if it changes its prices:
If you do not agree with the price change, you may stop using the Paid Services before the new price will come into effect or before the end of the current fixed price period.
In case of early termination there shall be no refund.
The client shall pay the amount due in euros (or the currency specified on the invoice) via the ‘Pay’ link on the invoice in the Bar Buddie dashboard, or (if agreed in writing) via a direct transfer to the IBAN specified by Bar Buddie on the invoice.
VAT, if applicable, shall be specified on the invoice.
You shall pay an advance, if Bar Buddie shall request one.
In case of late payment, you shall owe Bar Buddie an interest equal to the legal interest (wettelijke rentevoet) plus 1%, without any notice being required.
You shall reimburse any collection costs (whether or not extrajudicial). The costs are established at 15% of the amount of the invoice, with a minimum of EUR 40. Collections are made via HBSV advocaten and their payment terms are available at https://www.hbsv-law.be/nl/rechtsdomeinen/incasso-en-debiteurenbeheer
