4.2 Electric Motor Power may accept or reject a Purchase Order in its discretion. Any accepted Purchase Orders shall form part of and be governed by the terms of this Agreement.  Electric Motor Power is not deemed to have accepted a Purchase Order until it has issued an order number or (if earlier) Electric Motor Power has notified the Client that its Purchase Order is ready for delivery.
4.3 Once a Purchase Order has been accepted by Electric Motor Power it is not able to be cancelled or amended by the Client except where otherwise agreed by Electric Motor Power in accordance with clause 5.

Each Purchase Order is an independent contract that will continue in accordance with its terms until that contract has been terminated or fully discharged. Purchase Orders and this Agreement may run concurrently, and termination of a Purchase Order does not automatically terminate this Agreement.
4.6 In the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and any Purchase Order, the terms of this Agreement will prevail to the extent of such inconsistency. 
4.7 Any quotes provided by Electric Motor Power will be valid for 30 days and are merely an invitation to treat and not binding on Electric Motor Power until Electric Motor Power has accepted it (in the same manner as set out under clause 4.2).
4.8 The Client acknowledges that the supply of Goods under accepted Purchase Orders is subject to availability and if, for any reason, Electric Motor Power is unable to proceed with the supply, Electric Motor Power reserves the right to cancel the order (in which case Electric Motor Power will refund all amounts paid for such order). This is the Client’s only remedy in these circumstances and Electric Motor Power will not be liable to pay any other amount to the Client.
5. VARIATIONS
5.1 Should the Client wish to cancel or amend any Purchase Order, then the Client must notify Electric Motor Power within 3 days after placing a Purchase Order of any such request.  
5.2 Electric Motor Power may accept or reject such request at its sole discretion. If Electric Motor Power accepts any such request then Electric Motor Power will provide an additional quote (with additional fees required to be paid as advised by Electric Motor Power) and if accepted by the Client, an invoice will be issued to accommodate these scope changes.
5.3 If Electric Motor Power accepts the request and amends or cancels a Purchase Order, the Client must pay to Electric Motor Power all costs reasonably incurred by Electric Motor Power in fulfilling the Purchase Order up until the date of deemed receipt of the amendment or cancellation (this is in additional to the above quote).

7. PAYMENT
7.1 The Client agrees to pay the price for the Goods and the costs associated with delivery and insurance of the Goods in accordance with the payment terms as specified in the Purchase Order or as otherwise agreed between the parties in writing. If the Purchase Order includes a deposit payment, such payment must be made upon placing the Purchase Order.
7.2 Electric Motor Power may render an invoice for each Purchase Order to the Client on or before delivery and payment is due on the due date as specified on the invoice in accordance with the Purchase Order. Clients on approved Credit Terms must ensure compliance with the conditions of their Credit Application. If Electric Motor Power deems that, due to the financial position of the Client or otherwise, the continuance of production or shipment on the terms specified herein is not justified, Electric Motor Power may require full or partial payment in advance.
7.3 The Client will also pay to Electric Motor Power, on demand, on a full indemnity basis, all amounts that Electric Motor Power may, at its absolute discretion, expend or incur (including legal costs on a solicitor and own client basis) as a result of the Client defaulting on any of the terms of this Agreement. 7.4 If payment is not made in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, Electric Motor Power at its entire discretion may: (a) require the Client to pay Electric Motor Power interest on all outstanding monies from the due date until the date of payment at the rate of 2.5% per month accruing daily; (b) refuse to supply any further part of the Goods to the Client until all outstanding monies, including any accrued interest, is paid in full;  (c) exercise such other rights in accordance with clause 13.2; and/or (d) terminate this Agreement whereupon the full price for the Goods then supplied, whether or not the time for payment under this Agreement has arrived, will be immediately due and payable.   
7.5 Unless otherwise stated, the Price and any other amounts payable by the Client under this Agreement are to be increased by any Tax payable on the supply and such Tax must be paid by the Client at the same time as the Price.
7.6 The Client may not withhold payment or make any deduction from any amount owing without Electric Motor Power's prior written consent, irrespective of any claim the Client may have against Electric Motor Power for anything or matter whether related to the provision of the Goods or not.
7.7 All amounts owed to Electric Motor Power by the Client under this Agreement become immediately due and payable on termination of this Agreement for any reason, or if the Client becomes subject to an insolvency event.
7.8 All amounts paid by the Client to Electric Motor Power are non-refundable to the extent permitted by law. This is because on a Purchase Order being accepted, Electric Motor Power will take steps to manufacture the Goods and will commence incurring costs and Electric Motor Power may also reject other orders placed by other customers on the basis that the Client has placed their Purchase Order.
8. GOODS SUPPLIED OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA
8.1 For Goods supplied outside of Australia, the following payment terms apply: (a) a deposit of 50% of the total price of the Purchase Order is due within 7 working days of the Purchase Order being placed or the quotation having been accepted by email (whichever is earlier); and  (b) the balance of the total price of the Purchase Price is due within 7 working days after Electric Motor Power notifies the Client that the Goods are ready for delivery.

9.4 Any times provided for delivery of the Goods by Electric Motor Power are an estimate only (that run from the date of confirmation) and are nonbinding on Electric Motor Power and subject to change without notice.

9.5 In the event of delay the Client may, once a reasonable extra period has expired as determined by Electric Motor Power (being a period not less than 3 months), cancel the Purchase Order to the extent that the Goods have not been announced ready or dispatched by the date the extra period expires.  
9.6 Electric Motor Power will not be responsible for any Losses suffered by the Client in the event of late deliveries or loss or damage relating to such late deliveries.

9.7 Delivery of the Goods is completed when Electric Motor Power makes the Goods available for collection by the nominated carrier (whether arranged by the Client or by Electric Motor Power).
