(c) provide Cladspray, its employees, agents, consultants and subcontractors, with access to the Customer’s premises and other facilities as reasonably required by Cladspray;

4.2 If Cladspray’s performance of any of its obligations under the Contract is prevented or delayed by any act or omission by the Customer or failure by the Customer to perform any relevant obligation (“Customer Default”):
(a) without limiting or affecting any other right or remedy available to it, Cladspray shall have the right to suspend performance of the Services until the Customer remedies the Customer Default, and to rely on the Customer Default to relieve it from the performance of any of its obligations in each case to the extent the Customer Default prevents or delays Cladspray’s performance of any of its obligations;

5. Charges and payment
5.1 The charges for the Services (including details of any deposit to be paid by the Customer in advance (“Deposit”)) shall be set out in the Order, and shall be the full and exclusive remuneration of Cladspray in respect of the performance of the Services. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Customer, the charges shall include every cost and expense of Cladspray directly or indirectly incurred in connection with the performance of the Services.
5.2 The Customer shall pay the Deposit to Cladspray in full and cleared funds to a bank account nominated in writing by Cladspray prior to Cladspray’s commencement of the Services.

5.4 All amounts payable by the Customer under the Contract are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable from time to time (“VAT”). Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made under the Contract by Cladspray to the Customer, the Customer shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from Cladspray, pay to Cladspray such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services.
5.5 If the Customer fails to make a payment due to Cladspray under the Contract by the due date, then, without limiting Cladspray’s remedies under clause 8, the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. Interest under this clause 5.5 will accrue each day at 4% a year above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%.

6. Customer Guarantee

(c) the other party suspends, or threatens to suspend, or ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or a substantial part of its business; or

8.3 Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, Cladspray may terminate the Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Customer if the Customer fails to pay any amount due under the Contract on the due date for payment.
8.4 Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, Cladspray may suspend the supply of Services under the Contract or any other contract between the Customer and Cladspray if the Customer fails to pay any amount due under the Contract on the due date for payment, the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.2(b) to clause 8.2(d), or Cladspray reasonably believes that the Customer is about to become subject to any of them.
9. Consequences of termination
9.1 On termination of the Contract the Customer shall immediately pay to Cladspray all of Cladspray’s outstanding unpaid invoices and interest and, in respect of Services supplied but for which no invoice has been submitted, Cladspray shall submit an invoice, which shall be payable by the Customer immediately on receipt;

Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract.
