- Your contact details
- Ordering and Invoicing
We issues communications for orders and invoices by email. Once you have requested an invoice for a product either by confirming a proposal from us the order is regarded as firm and cannot be cancelled. An email instruction from you will be deemed to have the same value and legal implication as a signed written instruction. This allows us to be efficient, environmentally responsible and timely. When the invoice is issued you should pay within the terms – these are 28 days for advertising orders or prepayment for all events, offers, services and memberships. As soon as we see you have paid we will issue a remittance advice. It is very important you keep us informed of any change in your contact details. We will not normally send extra paper copies of any of these documents.
3.1 Leasing Broker Federation Membership
Memberships of the Leasing Broker Federation are for a 12 month period from date of invoice.
Memberships are automatically renewed and are payable unless notice has been given by writing to [email protected].
All our Partner offers are free to access for LBF members. Non-members will be charged £150 should they take up one of our Partner offers.
- Payment of Invoices
Invoices are payable in full normally within 28 days of the invoice date (event attendance must be paid prior to the event, along with offers, services and memberships). We prefer electronic payment directly into the correct account. Your invoice will be in pounds sterling. Our bank account details are as follows. Please ALWAYS reference our invoice number on all payments.

We wish to maintain excellent relations with all our customers however failure to pay in accordance with our terms causes us significant problems and expense in chasing late payers. For late payers we will take action to enforce full payment of the invoice, and without prejudice any other rights, to terminate the contract with you in respect of any future supplies and to compensation for debt recovery costs. We may refuse to accept any further orders if outstanding amounts are overdue. If you have a problem with any product or service please contact us immediately and we will try and resolve the issue.

- Disclaimers, Liability and Governing law
Our products, including the design, appearance, physical make up, all content, names, images, pictures, logos and icons, are provided “AS IS” and on an “AS AVAILABLE” basis. We have produced them with reasonable care, skill and professionalism and it is our intention that the content provided by us is correct at the time of delivery or publication and complies with the laws of England. However no responsibility is accepted for any errors, omissions or inaccurate content in any product. Nor do we warrant that our products or information are of satisfactory quality, fit for a particular purpose, complete, up-to-date or that that they are infringement free.
We shall not be liable for any of the following losses or damage (whether such damage or losses were foreseen, foreseeable, known or otherwise): (a) loss of data; (b) loss of revenue or anticipated profits; (c) loss of business; (d) loss of opportunity; (e) loss of goodwill or injury to reputation; (f) losses suffered by third parties; or (g) any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising from the use of our product and information regardless of the form of action.
In all cases the total liability of Business Car Manager Ltd in failing to fulfill an order, or for defects in the publications or services supplied to you will be a maximum of the value of that order as specified on the invoice to you.
These terms and conditions and all other express terms and conditions of sale shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England. Any waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be limited to the particular instance and shall not operate or be deemed to operate as a future waiver of that or any other term.
- Subscriptions for web publications
Subscriptions shall run for the full subscription term and no credit will be given for cancellations during the term. Each subscription is for an individual’s use or single seat as is commonly referred for web based subscriptions.
Web based publications may not be available for short periods of time either due to scheduled maintenance (where we will endeavour to provide reasonable notice) or because of unforeseen problems such as network failures across the internet; we have no liability for any loss of trade or profit occurring to you as a result of service disruption and if the service is unavailable for more than 24 hours we will extend your subscription period to compensate you. There will be no cash or other alternative remedy for service disruption.
- Attendance at events
To secure your attendance at an event you need to place a firm order and and pay all fees in advance of the event.
The event may be cancelled or the venue changed for reasons beyond our control. We have no liability for any loss of trade or profit occurring to the customer as a result of a change or cancellation.
Places at events are sold on a firm sales basis. Your inability to attend will not be reason for a refund although you may transfer your place to a colleague providing you notify us in writing in advance.
Should you be unable to attend an event, substitute guests are always welcome at no extra charge. Alternatively, if you confirm your cancellation in writing 90 days prior to the event date, you will receive a prompt refund (less a 15% administration charge). We regret that no refunds can be made or invoices cancelled after this time and the full rate will be payable.
- Advertising on web products and at events
Your advertisement needs to be supplied in a format suitable for our production needs. You are responsible for checking the accuracy of your advert prior to sending us the material.
You warrant that your advertisement is not offensive nor that it infringes any laws or advertising codes or standards of decency worldwide and that you have all permissions and authorities necessary to use and publish all content in the advert. You further agree to indemnify us in respect of all proceedings and any claims, damages, liability, losses, costs (including legal costs) and any monies paid in settlement incurred by us arising as a result of the publication or display of your advertisement in any jurisdiction. It is your responsibility to ensure compliance although we may refuse publication on reasonable grounds such as failure to supply finished artwork in time or that we believe it offensive or that it infringes the laws in any jurisdiction. Should this be due to the act or default by you, your agent or employees then the order shall be paid for in full (without deduction) notwithstanding that the order has not been fulfilled.
If we consider it necessary to modify your order we will use reasonable endeavours to notify you and you will have the right to cancel the order if the alterations requested are unacceptable. Every care is taken to avoid mistakes but we cannot accept liability for any errors due to inaccurate or untimely instructions from you.
We will publish your advert in accordance with the order using reasonable care and skill. We will make reasonable endeavours to ensure that the publication is made available in accordance with our advertised publishing schedule. No other warranties of any kind are given by us. Unless we agree in writing we shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of any total or partial failure of publication, distribution or availability of the publication in which your advertisement is scheduled to be included. In any event the maximum remedy for any dispute shall be the value of the order.
Orders will be invoiced prior to publication for web and event advertising. Payment of your invoice is required within the terms specified on the invoice. If you wish to cancel any order for an advert we must receive at least eight weeks notice in writing before the publication deadline unless specified differently on the order. Web adverts are published on a firm non-refundable basis. Advertising and sponsorship at events is also non-refundable. If you cancel orders that are part of a series we will issue a further invoice equal to the discount applied to adverts already published or due for publication within the eight week cancellation period.
The acceptance of your order does not confer the right to renew such order on similar terms. Where we are involved in extra production work on the advertisement owing to acts or default by you or your agent then such additional reasonable costs shall be charged to you. Complaints regarding reproduction of advertisements must be received in writing within one calendar month of the publication date.
You should keep copies of all art work or other material supplied to us. We cannot guarantee the materials supplied will not be damaged or lost during the production process and you agree that the materials may be stored by us for a period of time for the purposes of checking or rerunning your advert. However, we agree that retention of any materials does not transfer ownership or any intellectual property rights associated with the materials.
