2.1. You shall pay the Total Payment on the dates specified in the Service Plan Schedule. The Total Payment made by you includes the Services Cost and any Management Fee.
2.2. Failure by you to pay the Total Payment on the dates specified shall entitle the us to terminate this Service Plan and our obligations under the Service Plan shall stop immediately.
2.3. Services Costs will be deducted from your payment. In the event that the cost of the Services received by you prior to termination exceeds the payments made by you, you shall remain liable for the outstanding amount and shall make immediate payment to us of any balance due and we shall be entitled to charge interest at a rate of 4% above the base rate of Barclays Bank plc until full reimbursement is made.
2.4. The Total Payment has been calculated on the basis of the Service(s) occurring at the time intervals specified in the Service Specification. We reserve the right to require an Accelerated Payment from you in the event of the Vehicle being presented for Service earlier than the time or mileage intervals specified in the Service Specification. Any such Accelerated Payment will be requested by us at the time the Vehicle is presented for Service but will not affect the amount of the Total Payment (and so the amount of each of the remaining Direct Debit Payments will then be reduced to reflect the Accelerated Payment). This Service Plan only obliges us to provide Services up to the value of payments made to date by you under the Service Plan.
2.5. Any Direct Debit Payments due pursuant to the Direct Debit Scheme have been calculated using the current rates of VAT. If the rate of VAT should change, the Administrative Partner will adjust the Total Payment and payments due pursuant to the Direct Debit Scheme and/or any Accelerated Payment to reflect the new rate of VAT, and you agree to pay the adjusted payments.
