Terms and Conditions


  1. Robert Kitto Pty Ltd   *** Terms of Trade. ***1. Definitions

    In these terms “Company” means Robert Kitto Pty Ltd (ABN 58 008 210 526) and the “Customer” means the entity or person receiving goods and/or services from the Company.

    2. Application of Terms

      These terms govern the supply of goods and services by the Company to the Customer. They supersede all prior representations and agreements unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company.

    3. Delivery and Transportation

    The Company will use its best efforts to supply goods or services by the date/s identified in accepted orders but does not represent or warrant that it will do so. The Company will arrange transportation of goods to the Customer at the Customers cost, unless agreed otherwise.

    4. Return and Credits

    No return of goods will be accepted unless the Company has previously agreed in writing.  If the Company agrees to the return of goods, they must be delivered at the cost of the Customer to the Company’s premises.

    5. Dispatch Errors, Shortages and Breakage

    The Company will not be liable for dispatch errors, shortages and breakages unless they are reported to the Company by the Customer in writing within 48 hours of goods being delivered to the address nominated by the Customer.

    6. Orders

    Orders must be confirmed in writing by the Customer by either by fax or e-mail. The Company will not be liable for dispatch errors for orders placed by the Customer verbally. 

    7. Payment

    The Customer must pay the amount invoiced including any Australian Goods and Services Tax (“GST”), without setoff, within 14 days from the end of the month in which the invoice is sent to the Customer.  The Customer will pay interest on overdue amounts compounding daily, at an annual rate being the ATO GIC (Australian Taxation Office General Interest Charge rate for overdue payments) from the due date until the date of payment. In addition to interest a late payment fee of $15+GST applies to cover the Company’s administrative costs. This fee will be charged once for each and every month that a Customer does not pay an invoiced amount in full. The Customer will be responsible for all costs incurred to recover the payment from the Customer on an indemnity basis.

    8. Title

    Title in goods passes to the Customer on payment in full for the goods. Until full payment is made, the Customer holds the goods as bailee for the Company. At any time before full payment is received, the Company may enter the premises of the Customer and take possession of the goods. If the Customer has sold goods for which the Company has not been paid in full, the Customer holds those proceeds on trust for the Company and will pay to the Company the proceeds of that sale.

    9. Warranty and Liability

    No warrant is given in respect of the supply or state, quality, condition or purpose of the use of any goods. The Company shall have no liability (including liability in negligence) to any person or entity for failure to supply or loss or damage consequential or otherwise suffered or incurred by any person in relation directly or indirectly to any defect, deficiency, failure or breakdown of any kind of the goods.  

    10. Force Majeure
