Training payment and conditions

 

Payment

The fee includes coffee breaks, lunch and course materials, but not transport or accommodation, this should be arranged by the participant directly with the hotel.

You can either pay by bank transfer or credit card*, For some courses only credit card payment is accepted. Payment by credit card is highly recommended, as the sign up can be confirmed immediately. Upon completion of sign up the participant will receive an invoice (PDF)/receipt by email.

All payments should be made in the invoiced currency. EUR for the majority of EU and non-EU countries, except for courses held in the United Kingdom (GBP) and Norway (NOK).

When making the bank transfer please indicate (BIMCO reg number / invoice number) on the payment. Alternatively, you can pay the invoice online by credit card*. You will receive a separate email with the invoice in PDF format.

Payment must be received by BIMCO Informatique A/S by the invoice due date in order to be able to attend the course.  If no payment has been received by invoice due date, the course seat will be cancelled, and a new registration process will be required to secure a seat.

All bank charges are to be paid by the customer.

VAT

Training course fees for courses taking place in specific EU countries (including Norway) will be liable for VAT in that country, regardless of whether the participant paying the course fee is a taxable person or a non-taxable person and no matter where the participant originates from, due to an exception of the reverse charge rule. Local VAT is charged based on where the course is held – article 53 of the VAT directive applies.

The VAT can be reclaimed through the EU refund mechanism.

Substitution

Substitution of another named participant can be made free of charge until 2 working days before the course begins.
