expectation that the Client will purchase a minimum volume of Services over a given
period of time (“Minimum Volume Commitment”). The Minimum Volume
Commitment will be recorded in the Order Confirmation, or otherwise notified in

respect of value added tax chargeable for the time being (VAT). Where any taxable
supply for VAT purposes is made under the Contract by the Provider to the Client, the
Client shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from the Provider, pay to the Provider
such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the
Services at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services.
5.11. If the Client fails to make any payment due to the Provider under the Contract by the
due date for payment, then the Client shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the
rate of 4% per cent per annum above Barclays Bank’s base rate from time to time.
Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of
the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Client shall pay the
interest together with the overdue amount.
5.12. The Client shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any set-off,
counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding
required by law). The Provider may at any time, without limiting its other rights or
remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Client against any amount payable by
the Provider to the Client.

to time be unable to perform the Services in accordance with the Agreed Times. The

possible in the circumstances. This clause 5.13 is without prejudice to the provisions
of clauses 3.2.

Services, the Client shall be liable to pay a cancellation fee in accordance with the table
below, dependent up on the number of clear days’ notice given prior to the relevant
appointment. For these purposes, “clear days’ notice” shall not include the day on
