Overseas Exhibitions

Under UK/EC VAT regulations coming into force from 1st January 2011, for supplies classified as Cultural, Educational and Entertainment Services (which includes Exhibitions) the place of supply for services to business Customers is the country in which the Customer is located. Under these rules, UK VAT is chargeable on all supplies to UK Customers regardless of the location of the exhibition. UK VAT is not chargeable against EC (Reverse Charge rules apply) and Non EC-based clients irrespective of the location of the exhibition. For non-UK customers, where an exhibition takes place outside the UK, each supply will be subject to the VAT rules of that country. This means that we are potentially subject to VAT Registration in those countries where we participate at exhibitions, subject to individual countries’ VAT registration thresholds and the overall value of supplies. In the event of this being the case, Envisage reserves the right to recover VAT from you retrospectively.

Notes – Insurance

It is a condition of this offer that you have adequate insurance to cover the whole of the stand exhibitions and fittings during the term of the Contract

  • please see Condition 3.4 Overseas Exhibitions

Under UK/EC VAT regulations coming into force from 1st January 2011, for supplies classified as Cultural, Educational and Entertainment Services (which includes Exhibitions) the place of supply for services to business Customers is the country in which the Customer is located. Under these rules, UK VAT is chargeable on all supplies to UK Customers regardless of the location of the exhibition. UK VAT is not chargeable against EC (Reverse Charge rules apply) and Non EC-based clients irrespective of the location of the exhibition. For non-UK customers, where an exhibition takes place outside the UK, each supply will be subject to the VAT rules of that country. This means that we are potentially subject to VAT Registration in those countries where we participate at exhibitions, subject to individual countries’ VAT registration thresholds and the overall value of supplies. In the event of this being the case, Envisage reserve the right to recover VAT from you retrospectively.

Services shall be performed with all reasonable skill and care.

Vendor’s performance must be maintained at Buyer’s ‘A’ grade standard as measured and advised by the Buyer.

4. Delivery Date
4.1 The date of delivery of the Goods shall be that specified in the Purchase Order or any revisions or amendments later made by the Buyer to the Purchase Order. The time for delivery is of the essence. Vendor shall provide such programmes of manufacture and delivery as Buyer may reasonably require and Vendor shall give notice to Buyer as soon as practicable if such programmes are or are likely to be delayed. Delivery shall only be deemed to have occurred when Goods have been delivered correctly documented and in good and correct packaging at the address stated in the Purchase Order.

Such interest shall accrue from day to day and the parties agree that it is in substitution for any statutory interest and compensation arising out of late payment that may be applicable to this Contract.
Without prejudice to any other right or remedy, Buyer may set off any amount owing from Vendor to Buyer against any amount payable by Buyer to Vendor whether under this Contract or any other contract between them.
8. Acceptance
