15.1 Invoices issued by THE PARISIAN
When the Service Order is performed and achieved THE PARISIAN relies on the final estimate duly signed and agreed by the Client and send Him/Her an invoice by email. An invoice is issued by THE PARISIAN and sent to the Client for each Service Order. The amounts that are mentioned in it are denominated in euros, inclusive of all taxes and based on the rates in force on the date of the performance of the Service Order. If there are errors in the invoice, that will have been noticed by THE PARISIAN itself, The Company is committed to send a credit note to the Client. The same will be done if the error has been noticed by the Client but the latter must provide valid supporting documents proving THE PARISIAN’s fault.
15.2 Invoicing methods of the Services Orders
In addition to the Subscription to an offer, THE PARISIAN applies fees for each Service ordered by the Client. Depending on the nature of the latter, THE PARISIAN applies a commission percentage fee or a lump sum (hourly, daily, weekly).
15.2.1 Payment to the commission
THE PARISIAN applies a commission rate to the total amount ( VAT included ) of the product(s) / Service(s) ordered with the Third-Party Providers. This rate may vary depending on the nature of the service requested and the amount of time THE PARISIAN has devoted to the accomplishment of the mission.
15.2.2 Hourly / daily / weekly fee basis
Some Services require an important research time or a lot of travels to submit proposals as close as possible to the Client’s expectations (development of tailor-made trips, search for a hotel, shopping services, etc.). For this reason, We calculate the price of the service on an hourly or daily basis, in addition to the possible hourly increase (art. 15.2.3). It is agreed between the Parties that the payment of all costs by the Client to THE PARISIAN shall constitutes receipt and final acceptance of the Services mentioned in the invoice.
15.2.3 Rate increase for extra hours
The Subscription to which the Client has subscribed gives access to all private concierge Services during the days and hours mentioned on the Website and in the Subscription Agreement. THE PARISIAN receives all requests from the Client and will always respond as soon as possible to His/Her requests. However, any contact from the Client by phone, instant messenger, email or by any other communication medium before and after the hours and dates mentioned in the Subscription Agreement, to place a Service Order to be executed immediately or later, will be subject to a fixed mark-up rate to the total invoice amount ( excluding taxes ).
NB : As part of the management fee charged for each Service Order, please note that the hourly, daily, weekly fees and the commission rates are lower for Clients who have a six-month or a twelve-month subscription.
All the invoices issued by THE PARISIAN to the Client must be paid exclusively in euros (€) by bank transfer. The complete bank details of THE PARISIAN are mentioned in the invoice. We do not accept any other payment method, whatever the amount of the Service Order, whatever the nature of the Service and whatever the problems related to the Client’s bank account.
However, the payment by cash is accepted by THE PARISIAN for individual Clients and professionals who have subscribed to the “CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES”, “MONTMARTRE” or “VENDÔME” Subscription offers, according to the conditions described in article 8.2.3.
The Service Orders must be paid as follows :
– Payment of a deposit as set out in Art. 12.3.1.
– Payment of the balance owed to THE PARISIAN after the Service delivery
15.4 Payment period
The amounts mentioned in our invoices are based on the current rates on the date of performance of the Service Order. The deposit and the balance are payable and owed to THE PARISIAN within eight (8) calendar days from the date of receipt of the invoice. Please note that the payment deadline is a non-compulsory favour granted to the Client, whether he is a professional or an individual, it is the reason why the latter is required to respect it when signing all the Contracts and estimates, otherwise the Client will pay penalties (art. 15.7).
15.5 Discount for advance payment
THE PARISIAN does not apply any discount in the event of advance payment as part of the Client.
15.6 Resolutory clause
The Service Order will rightfully be terminated fourteen (14) working days after the reception of a formal notice ( by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt ) to pay the amounts due, eventually added to late penalty fees. The termination shall occur without prejudice to the damages which may be claimed from THE PARISIAN.
15.7 Late penalties applicable to professional Clients and retention of title clause
15.7.1 Payability of late penalty fees
Any payment beyond the agreed deadline indicated on the invoice shall give rise to the payment of late penalty fees by the Client without any formal notice. THE PARISIAN applies penalty interest for late payments and a minimum flat-rate allowance as compensation for recovery costs, to which is added the initial total amount of the invoice, VAT included.
NB : The fact that a Client and/or a Third-Party Payor requires from THE PARISIAN to delay the issue of the invoice to lengthen the effective payment period is considered as an abuse. THE PARISIAN reserves the right to refuse this request.
15.7.2 Penalty interest for late payments
We apply the interest rate applied by the European Central Bank to its most recent refinancing operation, increased by 10 points.
In the event of late payment, the calculation rule of the penalty interest for late payments is as follows :
Penalty interest for late payments = Due amount (VAT included) * Interest rate * ( Number of overdue days / 365
15.7.3 Flat-rate allowance for recovery costs (applicable to professional Client only)
In addition to the late payment allowance, any sum, including the deposit, not paid by the professional Client at the due date shall result in the payment of a fixed allowance for recovery costs of forty (40) euros for each unpaid invoice for THE PARISIAN. The indemnity is due in full rightfully and without formality by THE PARISIAN even if the invoice is paid partially at the due date, whatever the duration of the delay ( the allowance is not due for each overdue day ). When the recovery costs are higher than the amount of the flat-rate allowance fixed by decree, THE PARISIAN may request, upon justification, additional compensation.
15.7.4 Retention of title clause
If the recovery process is defeated because the Client has financial difficulties and is the subject of a collective procedure (judicial redress, judicial winding-up, etc.) THE PARISIAN reserves the right of ownership for all goods and services ordered until full payment of the amounts due from the Client.
NB : In the event of late payment, THE PARISIAN shall not be held liable for changes in availability and prices of products and/or services ordered.
