AR Distributors Ltd (the Company) supplies all goods and services to every Customer (the Customer), notwithstanding anything that may be stated to the contrary in the customer’s enquires or it’s orders, subject to the following conditions:

  1. PRICE

1.1 Our prices are subject to change without notice.

1.2 All pricing is exclusive of Goods & Services Tax (GST).

1.3 Unless we agree otherwise in writing, the amount you will be charged will be the price as at the date of order.

1.4 If we provide a quotation to you, it is based on information available to us at that time and we may charge you more than the amount quoted if our costs (e.g. the amount we pay for the Goods or any part of them or the cost of transport, tax, exchange rates or other costs) or the specifications change. 


2.1 You must pay for the Goods on order unless we agree in writing otherwise.

2.2 We are under no obligation to supply the Goods to you on credit. If we grant you credit, you agree to pay our invoices by the due date specified on your invoice.

2.3 We may notify you at any time that we are going to stop supplying Goods to you on credit. This shall be without prejudice to your obligation to pay amounts owing.

2.4 We shall retain title to the Goods until they have been paid for in full, all other amounts owing by you to us have been paid in full, and you have performed all your other obligations under these Terms.

2.5 All payments shall be made without set-off or deduction.

If you pay by credit card, we reserve the right to pass on any credit card fees and charges incurred by us to you.    

2.6 We may apportion payments to outstanding accounts as we see fit.


3.1 You will be in Default if:

  1. you fail to pay an amount due under these Terms by the due date for payment; or

  1. charge any other costs incurred by us;
  2. require you to remedy the Default in the manner and within a period that we tell you;
  1. require you to pay to us all amounts you owe us immediately;

  1. exercise any rights that we have under these Terms or that are available to us at law;
  1. enter any place where the Goods are kept or believed to be kept and retake possession of the Goods.
