Late Payment Policy
NEAT Fun Club operates a friendly establishment with strong parent partnerships. In
order to prevent these relationships from becoming strained due to late or non-
payment of fees, this policy has been introduced. The parent contract outlines the
terms and conditions for payment. This policy reinforces those terms and conditions
and outlines procedures that will be followed for late or non-payment of fees.
The contract outlines that term time fees are to be paid in advance by the 10 th of each
month. Changes to bookings are to be made one month in advance in order that
invoices are correct. Additional bookings or swapping days for another that week can be
arranged at short notice and any additional fees due will be invoiced the following
Once invoices have been received they MUST be paid in full by the 10th of the month.
Procedure for failing to pay invoices on time;
1) A charge of £5 will be incurred for every 7 days after the 10th day of the month.
This will be added to the following months invoice.
2) Failure to pay the invoice by the next invoice period will result in a letter being
sent warning of the possible withdrawal of care, giving 5 working days for full payment
to be made, which includes both invoices.
3) If full payment of both invoices is not made within these 5 working days, care will
be withdrawn with immediate effect.
4) Any future care at NEAT child care for parents who persistently pay late, will be
on a payment in advance of care ONLY basis
Payment by cheque
We are happy for fee’s to be paid by cheque, however should a cheque not clear with
the bank we will require payment by other means (e.g. bank transfer or cash) within 5
working days. Any charges that have been accrued will be added to the next invoice. If
this happens on more than one occasion we will require all future payments by bank
transfer or cash.
This policy forms part of your parent contract, if you are not in agreement with this
policy, it is essential that you speak to Jo or Michelle immediately to discuss the matter.
