11-2. Late payment

Any settlement after the set payment date could result in billing penalties. The penalty will be equivalent to the legal rate of interest applied by the European Central Bank (ECB) in its most recent refinancing operation plus ten points. For 2010, the legal rate of interest was fixed at 0.65% (*) and the calculation is as follows: 0.65%+10=10.65%. Penalties will be due without any reminder. They will be applied from the day following the settlement date on the invoice or, failing that, the thirty-first day following the date of the receipt of goods or the performance of the service. The rate of legal interest will also be used with an increase of five points (or 5.65% in 2010) as the interest payable by a person convicted in court after two months of non-payment. The Buyer can never withhold all or part of the amounts he owes by way of complaint. If the Buyer is late for a payment or part payment deadline, the Seller may for that reason alone and without any need for prior notice, suspend all deliveries to the Buyer and the Buyer will not be able to claim damages. If the Seller seeks recourse through litigation, they are entitled to claim from the Buyer any reimbursement related to the lawsuit, (*) Decree No. 2010-127, 10th February 2010, fixing the legal rate of interest of 2010.
