1.2.4 Paying Invoices

There are three ways to pay an invoice. In each case please use your invoice number as reference. Please note the payment deadline set on the Sale Specific Terms and Conditions to ensure you select the payment method to get the funds to us on time before collection.

  • Bank transfer

  • You can pay by BACS (up to 3 days) or CHAPS (same day) transfer directly into Sweeney Kincaid’s client account. Please note carefully the account details listed on the website and remember to include your invoice number(s) as reference.

  • At the bank

  • Any Royal Bank of Scotland branch will accept payment into Sweeney Kincaid’s client account subject to banking   terms & conditions. Please note carefully the account details listed on the website and remember to include your invoice  number(s) as reference.

  • Cheque

  • Cheques may be made out to ‘Sweeney Kincaid’ limited and sent to the address listed on the website. Please remember to include your invoice number(s) on the reverse of the cheque. As cheques must be cleared before goods may be collected it is unusual for this method to work within our payment deadlines.

1.2.5 Deposits

Deposit payments will be allocated against your invoice. Please see Sale Specific Terms and Conditions for required amounts and deadlines; typically 15% of total invoice amount payable same day or next day.

Many finance the balance after paying the deposit. This is acceptable, but you must tell us before bidding and confirm you have the finance in place. An agreed non-refundable deposit will be required.

1.2.7 Overdue Invoices

Invoices that have not been paid and have gone beyond the terms of the Sale Specific Terms and Conditions are noted in your Account area and welcome area (top right of screen) with a red exclamation icon. Immediate attention should be given to these invoices – contact SKL immediately and make them aware of when and how you intend to pay to avoid any action being taken by SKL to recover amounts due.
