5. GOODS AND SERVICES TAX
5.1 All of these Terms and Conditions, except this one, including the provisions concerning payments and compensation, have been drafted to exclude the impact, if any, of products and services tax (“GST”). This clause applies in determining the impact, if any, of the GST.
5.2 If any consideration is payable by the Buyer under these Terms and Conditions in respect of a supply by the Supplier which is a taxable supply for the purposes of the GST, then the Buyer must in addition to the consideration pay to the Supplier the GST payable in respect of the supply.
5.3 All additional amounts payable by the Buyer pursuant to sub-clause 5.2 shall be paid at the same time and in the same manner as the Buyer is required to provide consideration for the supply.
5.4 If the Supplier becomes subject to any penalties or interest resulting from late payment of GST because of the Buyer’s failure to comply with this clause, then the Buyer must pay on demand to the Supplier an additional amount equal to the amount of those penalties and interest.

Cancellation of an order accepted on the basis of a quotation can only be made by mutual consent and on terms which indemnify us against all loss. If the Buyer becomes bankrupt or insolvent during the term of the contract, or if, in the Supplier's judgement, the Buyer's financial condition does not justify the terms of payment specified or non-payment within the credit terms, the Supplier may forthwith terminate the contract and any existing contract upon written notice to the Buyer. Such termination shall not prejudice the Supplier's rights to any amounts then due under the contract.
