We reserve the right to seek recovery of any monies remaining unpaid sixty days from the date of invoice via collection Agencies and/or through the Small Claims Court in the event that the outstanding balance does not exceed S$3000 or its foreign currency equivalent. In such circumstances, you shall be liable for any and all additional administrative and/or court costs.

Consequently, all transactions and agreements entered into will cease with immediate effect until such time as any and all outstanding monies are recovered in full.
