you, your and similar expressions, refer to you, our customer or proposed customer; and
we, us and similar expressions, refer to Pharm-a-Care Laboratories Pty Limited (ACN 003 468 219), 18 Jubilee Avenue, Warriewood, NSW, 2102, +612 9997 1466.
Application of terms and conditions
These terms and conditions govern all supplies of Goods by us to you. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all other terms and conditions, express or implied, are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law, including any terms and conditions sought to be imposed by you.
Offer and acceptance
2.1 Any marketing material, price list, or quotation given to you by us is not an offer from us to sell you Goods, it is merely an invitation to you to place an order with us.
2.2 If you offer to purchase Goods based on any marketing material, price list or quotation from us, then your offer is subject to these terms and conditions.
2.3 We are not obliged to accept any order from you. If you place an order with us then it becomes binding from the moment that we accept it even if we do not tell you that it has been accepted. We may accept an order by written confirmation or by delivery and, in the case of delivery, only as to the portion of the order actually delivered.
2.4 If an order is accepted, we will carry out the order and you must pay for the Goods in accordance with these terms and conditions.
Upon payment, goods carrying a minimum of six months remaining from their expiration date will be supplied in due course.
3. Cancellation and return of Goods
3.1 Subject to clause 11.1, no returns or cancellations will be accepted without prior written agreement from us, which we may provide or withhold in our discretion (including imposing conditions).
3.2 If we choose to accept the return of any order, or part of any order, that was fulfilled in good faith in concurrence with your order, we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee equal to 5% of the value of the returned Goods.
3.3 We cannot consider any request to return an order unless you return the Goods to us in original packaging with our original invoice number. If we provisionally agree to accept delivery of any returned Goods, you acknowledge that is to allow us to inspect the Goods to see if they are in good order and condition and to ensure it is commercially realistic for us to re-sell the Goods, and this does not mean we are bound to agree with the requested return.
3.4 Goods supplied to special order are not returnable.
3.5 We reserve the right to cancel orders, or the balance of orders, where we
have reason to suspect your credit worthiness, or you have failed to adhere to the terms and conditions set out in this document.
4.1 All prices are in Australian dollars, unless otherwise explicitly stated. Irrespective of where you are located, Goods are invoiced at the price we charge on the date of despatch from our premises, unless otherwise agreed in writing between us and you.
5.1 Unless we agree to give you credit, you must pay for all orders on or before delivery of the Goods.
5.2 If we give you credit, you must pay each of our invoices within 30 days from the date of receipt of Goods, unless otherwise set out in writing by us.
6.1 If we decide to give you credit, we will provide you with written notice of our decision and you will be bound by these terms and conditions and any additional terms and conditions that we set for giving you credit.
6.2 We may decline to give you further credit at any time. If we do so, these terms and conditions and any credit conditions continue to apply to any amounts which you then owe to us.
6.3 We may, subject to the content of any additional documents setting out the terms and conditions on which we give you credit, withdraw any
credit given to you and require that all monies are payable to us on demand.
7. Overdue payments
7.1 If any amount you owe us is not paid by the due date then:
(a) all money that you owe us on any account becomes immediately
payable despite any previously agreed credit conditions;
(b) we may suspend supply or cancel any outstanding orders we have
accepted from you;
(c) we may charge you interest on any amount from the due date until
payment, calculated daily, at the rate prescribed as payable on judgments for monetary sums awarded by the Supreme Court of New South Wales, and interest may be capitalised each month so that cumulative interest may be payable;
(d) you are liable for all costs, losses and expenses we incur in connection with the recovery of overdue payments from you, including mercantile agents’ and lawyers’ fees and expenses.
8. Delivery and shipping terms
8.1 Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, delivery will be FIS (free into store) for domestic Australian customers, unless otherwise agreed, and subject to individual written agreements for International customers.
8.2 Any delivery times are estimates only, involving no contractual obligations unless a guarantee in writing has been given by us for the deliver on a specific date.
8.3 You are required to inspect the Goods as soon as practicable after delivery has occurred and notify us of any damage, shortfall or other defect within 7 days of receipt of the Goods. We reserve the right to reject any claim for damage, shortfall or other defect received by us after this period.
9. Risk and title
9.1 We remain the owner of all Goods supplied to you until you have paid us all amounts owing in respect of all Goods supplied.
9.2 Until you become the owner of Goods in accordance with clause 9.1:
(a) you hold them as agent and bailee for us and you owe a fiduciary duty
to us in respect of them;
(b) you must if required by us store them on your premises separately
from your own goods or goods of any other person and in a manner
which makes them readily identifiable as our Goods;
(c) we may terminate your right to resell or use them forthwith on written
notice of termination being delivered to your place of business;
(d) we may retake possession, if:
(i) We may for the purpose you default in paying any part of the price or associated charges for them; or
(ii) you become or resolve to become subject to any form of insolvency
9.3 We may for the purpose of recovery of our Goods enter (by our employees or
agents) on any premises where the Goods are stored or where they are reasonably thought to be stored and may repossess them. This permission is irrevocable and you agree that our employees or agents so entering are not trespassing.
9.4 Goods you hold which meet the description of goods on an invoice for which payment has not been made is in the absence of evidence to the contrary treated as goods to which we have retained title. We may exercise our remedies under these provisions against those goods.
9.5 The debt you owe to us at the date of repossession of goods is, as between the parties, taken to include any payment we have previously received which might be claimed to be void under any law relating to bankruptcy, liquidation or the protection of creditors. This is so whether or not a claim has been made.
9.6 You may re-supply the Goods to any other person or entity before you have paid all amounts which are owing to us provided that:
(a) the re-supply is in the ordinary course of your business;
(b) all money received by you for the Goods will be held by you on trust
for us; and
(c) you must either:
(i) pay the money to us immediately when it is received by you; or
(ii) deposit the money into a bank account and hold it as trustee
9.7 We will not be liable, at common law, in contract or in tort or otherwise, for
any costs, damages, expenses or losses incurred by you or any third party as a result of any action taken under clauses 9.1 to 9.6 (inclusive).

obligations were incurred;

those obligations were incurred;
(c) to obligations that are secured by PMSIs, in the order in which those
obligations were incurred.

obtaining consents and signing documents) which we require for the purposes of:
