Payment of all invoices relating to fees for workshops must be made within 30 days of receipt of that invoice from us, or 14 days prior to the first day of the workshop, whichever is the earlier. We shall be entitled to cancel your attendance in the event that payment of all fees is not made by the appropriate time. You will only be treated as having paid such fees when our bank account has been credited with the full amount due.
