- These Terms and Conditions of Sale apply to a sale of Goods by each related body corporate (as defined in the Corporations Act 2001) of Coca-Cola Amatil Limited.
- If a Customer has entered into a Supply Agreement with the Supplier, these Terms and Conditions of Sale (together with the Credit Terms, if relevant) operate in addition to the terms of the Supply Agreement. Notwithstanding anything which is stated to the contrary in the Supply Agreement, the Supply Agreement is not the entire agreement between the Supplier and the Customer and, to the extent of any inconsistency between the Supply Agreement and the provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Sale (including the Credit Terms if relevant), these Terms and Conditions of Sale prevail.
- Any quotation given by the Supplier and any order made by the Customer and accepted by the Supplier, for the sale of any Goods, will be subject to these Terms and Conditions of Sale notwithstanding anything which may be stated to the contrary on a Customer's enquiry or order.
- The Customer's order for Goods shall be deemed to be an offer to buy the Goods and the Goods shall not be supplied until the order is accepted by or on behalf of the Supplier at which point a Contract for the sale of the Goods comes into existence (the Contract).
- The Customer acknowledges and agrees that time is not of the essence in relation to delivery and that it must accept and pay for the Goods even if they are delivered after a requested time. The Supplier is not liable for any loss or damage arising from late delivery.
- Unless otherwise agreed, the place of delivery is the Customer's place of business and due delivery shall be deemed to have been made to the Customer upon discharge of the Goods from the Supplier's transport at the Customer's place of business.
- The Supplier may deliver the Goods in instalments and the Customer must pay an amount for an instalment as notified by the Supplier in the Invoice. If the Supplier fails to deliver any instalment the Customer must still accept and pay for the balance of the Goods delivered. If the Customer fails to pay for any instalment the Supplier, in its absolute discretion, may refuse to deliver any further instalments until all amounts due are paid, or may terminate the Contract and recover damages.
- Risk in the Goods passes to the Customer at the time the Goods are delivered to the Customer.
- Subject to clause 10, the Customer must pay the Purchase Price of the Goods in advance of, or in cash on, delivery.
- If the Customer seeks and obtains a credit facility from the Supplier as a
consequence of having completed a "Commercial Credit Account Application", and
the Customer is entitled, in accordance with the Credit Terms, to the benefit of
a Period of Credit, the Customer must pay the Purchase Price of the Goods within
the Period of Credit. Payment by cheque or other bill of exchange is not made
until the cheque or bill of exchange is honoured in full. If, by operation of
clause 5 of the Credit Terms, a Contract is not entitled to the benefit of the
Period of Credit and if, through inadvertence including because of a mistaken
belief that the Period of Credit was available to the Customer, the Goods the
subject of the Contract are delivered without the Purchase Price having been
paid in advance of, or in cash on delivery, the Purchase Price must be paid
immediately on demand made by the Supplier.
- If the Purchase Price is not paid in full when due, the Supplier may exercise
its rights under clause 20 and, in addition, may charge the Customer a late
payment fee on the unpaid amount for the period from its due date until it is
paid. The fee will be calculated on a daily basis at a rate which is equal to 2%
above Westpac's published 90 day bank bill swap rate. The Customer must pay the
fee to the Supplier on demand.
(a) Title to the Goods does not pass from the Supplier to the Customer until
the Customer pays in full the Purchase Price and all other monies payable or
owing but not paid to the Supplier by the Customer on any account.
(b)Until title to the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer must:
(i)hold the Goods as fiduciary and bailee for the Supplier;
(ii)store the Goods properly and separately and in accordance with a system whereby the Customer can readily identify the Goods as the Supplier's property; and
(iii)fully insure the Goods against loss or damage, ensuring that the Supplier's interest as owner is noted on the policy.
(c)Until the Customer pays in full the Purchase Price and all monies payable or owing but not paid to the Supplier by the Customer on any account, the Customer may only sell, or otherwise deal with the Goods:
(i)as a fiduciary (but not agent) of the Supplier; and
(ii)in the ordinary course of the Customer's business.
For that purpose the Supplier gives the Customer the right to pass title to the
Goods to any person who buys the Goods from the Customer provided that where the
Customer is paid for the Goods by the third party, the Customer must receive all
proceeds from the sale in trust for the Supplier, must hold those proceeds on
trust and in a separate account until the liability of the Supplier has been
discharged and must account to the Supplier for the proceeds. Where the Customer
has not been paid for the Goods by the third party, the Customer holds the debt
owing to it by the third party in respect of the sale of the Goods upon trust
for the Supplier and must assign that debt to the Supplier.
(d) If the Customer fails to pay in full the Purchase Price for the Goods or if
another Event of Default (see clause 20 below) occurs in relation to the
Customer, the Supplier may retake possession of the Goods title to which has not
passed to the Customer. The Supplier, for that purpose, may enter any premises
occupied by the Customer where those Goods are held and remove those Goods.
(e) If, at any time, the Supplier wishes or is required to take any further step
to protect its interest in the Goods under this clause, for example by
registering its interest, the Customer agrees to provide any assistance which
may be required by the Supplier for that purpose.
(f) This clause survives the termination of the Contract.
- Subject to clause 14, all warranties, conditions and liabilities in relation to
the quality or fitness of any Goods (other than any warranties, conditions or
liabilities which by legislation cannot be excluded) which might, but for this
clause, be implied into the Contract are hereby expressly excluded. Where
legislation implies in a Contract any condition warranty or liability which
cannot be excluded or modified then, to the extent permitted by law, the
liability of the Supplier in respect of a breach of any such implied condition
or warranty is limited, at the Supplier's option, to the replacement of the
Goods or the supply of equivalent Goods or the payment of the costs of replacing
those Goods or acquiring equivalent Goods. The Supplier is not liable for any
loss or damage of any kind whatsoever including, without limitation,
consequential or economic loss or loss of profits by reason of the negligence of
the Supplier, its officers, employees or agents arising out of or in connection
with the supply of the Goods.
- The Customer must inspect the Goods on or immediately after delivery. In the
event that the Customer discovers that all or any portion of the Goods as
delivered differs, in quantity or kind, from the description in the Invoice or
are damaged (other than due to an act or omission of the Customer), the Customer
must notify and make a claim against the Supplier within 48 hours of the
delivery. In the event that the Customer does not make a claim in accordance
with this clause, the Goods shall be deemed to be in conformity with the
Contract and the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted them.
- The Supplier may suspend delivery or reduce the quantity of goods to be
delivered if the Supplier is unable to deliver any or all of the Goods by reason
of circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation,
strikes, blackouts, accidents, war, fire, flood, explosion, shortage of power,
breakdown of plant or machinery, shortage of raw materials, act of God or any
order or direction of any government, government authority or instrumentality.
If the effects of any such force majeure event continue for more than one
calendar month, the Supplier may, in its absolute discretion, terminate a
Contract. The Customer will have no claim against the Supplier for any damages,
loss, costs or expenses arising from any delay or termination authorised by this
As security for the payment of the amount owing at any time by the Customer to the Supplier, the Customer hereby:
(a) grants to the Supplier a security interest (as defined in the PPS Act) over all PPS Property; and
(b) charges all legal and beneficial interest in any land and personal property held now or in the future by the Customer with the payment of that indebtedness and the Customer consents unconditionally to the Supplier lodging a caveat or caveats noting its interest in any Real Property.
- The security interest granted in clause 16 is a first ranking security subject only to those security interests which the Supplier agrees in writing rank in priority to it.
- For the purposes of section 20(2)(b)(ii) of the PPS Act, the security interest granted in clause 16 is in all the Customer's present and after-acquired property.
The Customer warrants that it:
(a)has and will continue to have any permit, government authorisation or licence required for it to carry on its business and, in particular and without limitation, if the Goods include alcoholic beverages, that it will continue to have the requisite retail liquor licence required under any relevant State and Territory laws.
(b)will handle and store the Goods at all times as directed by the Supplier or, in the absence of such direction, in accordance with prevailing industry standards for the particular Goods; and
(c)has product safety and product recall procedures in place which conform with the requirements of all relevant State and Territory laws.
The Customer will be in default if any one or more of the following event (Events of Default) occur:
(a) the Customer is in liquidation or provisional liquidation or under
administration, has a controller (as defined in the Corporations Act 2001) or
any analogous person appointed to it or to any of its property, is taken under
section 459F(1) of the Corporations Act 2001 to have failed to comply with a
statutory demand, is unable to pay its debts or is insolvent, takes any step
that could result in the Customer becoming an insolvent under administration as
defined in section 9 of the Corporations Act 2001, enters into a compromise or
arrangement with, or assignment for the benefit of, any its members or creditors
or is affected by an analogous event;
(b) any permit or government authority or licence required to carry on the
Customer's business is either cancelled or revoked;
(c) the Customer fails to perform in whole or in part any of its obligations
under, or is in breach in whole or in part of any term of, the Contract; or
(d) the Customer breaches in whole or in part any term of the Credit Terms.
If there is an Event of Default, in addition to any other rights at law the
Supplier may have, the Supplier may take one or more of the following actions:
(i)treat the Contract as repudiated and sue for any loss and damage in respect of the loss of the Contract;
(ii) enforce its security interest in any Collateral by exercising all or any of its rights under clause 12(d) and this clause 20 (including repossessing, in accordance with clause 12, any Goods in the Customer's possession in respect of which title has not yet passed to the Customer). To the extent that Chapter 4 of the PPS Act would otherwise apply to an enforcement by the Supplier of its security interest in the Collateral, the Customer and the Supplier agree that the following provisions of the PPS Act do not apply:
- (A) to the extent that s 115(1) of the PPS Act allows them to be excluded: ss 95, 118, 121(4), 125, 130, 132(3)(d), 132(4), 135, 138B(4), 142 and 143; and
- (B) to the extent that section 115(7) of the PPS Act allows them to be excluded: ss 127, 129(2) and (3), 132, 134(2), 135, 136(3), 136(4), 136(5) and 137;
(iii) (if relevant) suspend or withdraw any credit facility provided by the Supplier to the Customer entirely, or exclude one or more Contracts from the benefit of the credit facility, or vary the Period of Credit for one or more Contracts, or vary the Credit Limit; or
(iv) require the immediate payment by the Customer of all monies owing by the Customer to the Supplier under any Contract or any account.

c. The Customer undertakes, if it disposes of any Collateral, that it will receive proceeds at least equal to the market value of the Collateral, and that it will not allow any other security interest to exist over those proceeds if that security interest could rank ahead of the Supplier's security interest.
