terms & payment


General Terms & Conditions: 
 All invoices are payable on a strictly seven day basis from invoice date.  These terms also coincide with most of our suppliers who require a seven day payment of their own invoices for contracted equipment and staff.  Failure to pay invoices on the due date (within seven day terms outlined) will incur a penalty interest of 20% per week, which will be added onto the overall invoice cost.  Any debt collection &/or legal costs will also be on-charged to the client in the event of such recovery proceedings eventuating.

Big Day Ltd will work with the budget given to us by your company representative as a final monetary figure, upon which any cancellation fee would be based.  A booking form will be generated, for client approval outlining our responsibilities to you for each event, which must be signed prior to work commencing.  Any contractual obligations with suppliers (inc structured ongoing deposit schedules, cancellation fees pending) arising in relation to the contracted project will be on-charged to the client and are payable as per terms outlined above.

Big Day Ltd will be responsible for all payment to all sub-contractors hired directly by us, outlined on the “Event costing Estimate” and used for your “event”.  All sub-contractors hired by Big Day Ltd will be paid once the final payment of the final invoice for your “event” has been received by us.  All supplier invoices will be charged through us unless arranged prior to budgets/concepts being developed.  Any contractors hired directly by the client are to be paid direct by them and not by Big Day Ltd.

All investigative/ event scoping work and any associated costs will be chargeable whether the event is undertaken or not.  If the event proceeds, the cost of the scoping work will be included in the overall quote as part of our fee structure.  Scoping rates will be advised.

Any photographs taken of the event/ function may be used as advertising material/ Big Day website to showcase what we do without additional client authorisation.

Event / Project Advances:
An advance (or advances) may be invoiced for prior to the actual event.  This advance is to cover deposits on venues, equipment, performers, staging etc booked for your event.  A flat advance of up to 80% of the final invoice may be invoiced, dependent on the level of deposits required.  Any advance amounts will be deducted from the final total of the invoice on the final account. Some suppliers may require a staggered deposit programme, and these payments will be invoiced accordingly.

Creative Concepts:
All correspondence, supplier details and invoicing, creative ideas, images and information sourced, devised or provided by Big Day Ltd, remain strictly confidential and the intellectual property of Big Day Ltd and cannot be used without the express knowledge or consent of Big Day Ltd.

Cancellation policies:
In general: In the instance that an “event” is cancelled, Big Day Ltd will invoice for all appropriate costs and supplier cancellation fees as applicable with their contracts (eg: venues, entertainment, technical etc)plus all time spent/ expenses incurred to date on the organisation of the “event” by Big Day Ltd.  A cancellation fee for time booked in advance with Big Day Ltd for the running of the actual event date(s) may also incur a 50% cancellation fee.  The client agrees to the settlement of all cancellation fees from all parties upon signing the booking form for their “event”.

For conference registrations made using online booking system: Any amendments to event booking(s) need to be lodged via email to conference organisers. The contact address is bigday@xtra.co.nz for all correspondence. Please advise which event you are attending and what assistance you require. Further email correspondence may be entered into and the client holding the event will be included in any email correspondence as we would require their authority to confirm any further level of cancellation pending. Where possible, we will endeavour to keep cancellation charges to a minimum, however any cancellation charges pending from the venue (see Terms & Conditions above) or with other event suppliers will be passed on and any refund will itemise venue/ supplier costs charged. A non-refundable booking fee of $10 + GST pp will be charged per registrant. Other general "event" cancellations will be processed direct with client / organisation holding the event.

Hotel accommodation & catering cancellation fees may apply depending on timing of date of cancellation & actual event.  Fees may vary- an example of the graduated fee structure:  Cancellation prior to 90 days prior to event (no charge), 90-61 days prior to event (equivalent to 30% of contracted costs), 60-15 days prior to event (equivalent to 60% of contracted costs, By 14 days prior to arrival (equivalent to 100% of contracted costs).
