Payment Terms

We may require payment for some services in advance of the funeral service date. If the person instructing fails to make requested payment by the required date the contract for the provision of these services will be deemed to be breached and we will not provide these goods and services. We will only make a new arrangement to provide such services when full payment for these services (together with any penalties or cancellation fees) is received.

The final invoice for our services may vary from the estimated cost as it will include charges for any additional extras and services subsequently ordered. Disbursements (i.e. death announcements) will be actual costs rather than estimated. Manual calculations are used to compile the estimate and where addition errors are found later the corrected total will be shown on the final invoice.

The final invoice will be posted approximately 1 week after the funeral and payment is to be made within 28 days of invoice date. An overdue account may incur interest at 2% of the outstanding balance, increasing a further 2% on the first day of each calendar month thereafter. The invoice will show any payments already made and the balance due.

If the invoice is to be paid by someone other than the person instructing, liability for any outstanding balance still lies with the person instructing. Forwarding the final invoice to another person or party will not discharge liability. The person instructing remains liable to us until full payment is received by it.

Where we have made an estimate of any anticipated payments, including that from the DWP and any insurance policies or payments to be made from an estate, this is based on the information provided at that time on the final invoice. We are not responsible for any difference between the actual and anticipated grant and when less is received than anticipated the person instructing remains responsible for any shortfall.

We acknowledge that a client may have made an application for a loan from Ideal 4 Finance. This will not be shown on the final invoice as the paperwork and final agreement in this matter will not normally be concluded before the date of invoice.
