Rearrangements of the Services and Cancellation of Proposal
1.The Services can be rearranged or cancelled by either party in writing or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org subject to the matters set out in this clause.
2.1 If The Venue Experts cancels the Services, unless in accordance with clause 2.2 below, Fees for any of the Services paid by the Client in advance will be repaid to the Client within 14 days of cancellation. Any Fees paid for Services already delivered will not be refunded. No further refunds, sum or compensation will be payable to the Client by The Venue Experts arising from such cancellation.
2.2 The Services may be also terminated if payment of the Fees is not made in accordance with these terms, or if the Client commits a material breach of any of these terms and fails to remedy the breach within 14 days of being notified in writing, or the Client makes any statements or behaves in any way or requests The Venue Experts to undertake any actions that are discriminatory, illegal or immoral, or if the Client enters into any form of insolvency arrangement or suspends its business. Upon such termination, there shall be no refunds and the Client shall immediately pay any outstanding sums to The Venue Experts, whether the Services have been delivered or not.
3.In the unlikely event of The Venue Experts having to reschedule the Services, The Venue Experts will give the Client as much notice as reasonably practical and offer alternative dates to deliver the Services as soon as practicable. No refunds, sum or compensation will be payable to the Client by The Venue Experts arising from such rescheduling.
4.If the Client seeks to rearrange any Services booked, at least 7 days’ notice must be given to The Venue Experts. If less than 7 days’ notice is given, or if the Client seeks to postpone the Services for a second time (after rearrangement of the Services has once been agreed) then the Fees for that part of the Services are forfeited.
5.1. If you cancel the Services at any time after entering into this agreement, the Fees already paid for work delivered are forfeited.
5.2 For power hour and project-based Services: If the Client seeks to cancel the Services in their entirety, then the Fees (whether the Services have been provided at the date of cancellation or otherwise) will be payable in full by the Client. If instalments have been agreed, the Fees must still be paid in full for all Services whether provided or not at the time of cancellation, unless we agree differently in writing with you.
5.3 For monthly retained Services: The Client is required to give us 4 weeks’ notice if you wish to terminate the Services. If you purport to give such notice within the initial six-month term of the Services, the notice is deemed to expire 4 weeks after it was given, or on the last day of the initial fixed term, whichever is the later date, ie the Services cannot be terminated earlier than six months from commencement. The balance Fees for the remainder of the fixed initial six-month term are due, even if we are not required by you to deliver further work or Services.

3.The Venue Experts shall use reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates, but such dates shall be estimates only, and time is not the essence of the contract.
4.The Fees will be paid after invoices are rendered from time to time. VAT is applicable. Payment terms are ’immediately due’, and payment is not deemed to have been made until the Fees have been paid in full. If payment is not made in full and within time, the Services may be suspended and payment in advance may be required before the Services are re – commenced.
5.If payment is not made in accordance with the above clauses, The Venue Experts reserves the right to charge interest at the rate prescribed by the Late Payment of Commercial Debt (Interest) Act 1998 from the date payment was due until the date payment is made.

10.Nothing in these Terms will exclude or limit liability for death or serious injury caused by The Venue Experts’ negligence.
11.If The Venue Experts is limited or hindered from providing Services booked by the Client due to circumstances beyond its control eg.
