(a) All of the Secured Money will be due and payable immediately; and
(b) The Supplier may at any time appoint in writing one or more Receivers (jointly and severally) in respect of any Secured Property on terms which the Supplier considers to be necessary or expedient; and
(c) The remuneration of a Receiver may be fixed by the Supplier but is payable by the Customer and forms part of the Secured Money. To the fullest extent permitted by law a Receiver will be the agent of the Customer and the Customer will be solely responsible for the Receiver’s acts and defaults; and

(f) The Supplier or a Receiver may take possession of the Goods and any other Secured Property (including any Goods that have become an accession under the PPSA) and may dispose of them or retain them for the Supplier’s own benefit and for that purpose the Supplier may, subject to the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003, without notice, enter directly or by its agents on any premises where the Supplier believes Goods may be stored, without in any way being liable to any person. In respect of other Secured Property the Supplier may in the name of the Customer or otherwise, at any time do anything and exercise any right which the Customer could do or exercise in relation to the Secured Property including the right to take possession of, demand, collect and get in any Secured Property, cancelling any contracts, borrowing any money, taking any proceedings in the Customer’s name and settling any disputes or proceedings; and
(a) A certificate signed by the Supplier as to an amount due by the Customer shall be conclusive evidence for all purposes, including for any proceedings; and
(b) The Supplier may suspend all payment credit arrangements offered to the Customer by the Supplier immediately, without notice, until the Enforcement Event is remedied to the Supplier’s satisfaction; and
(c) The Supplier may suspend or cancel (in whole or in part) any outstanding order from the Customer to it or all or any part of any contract or contracts with the Customer which remain unperformed; and
(d) The Supplier may require any future orders from the Customer to be paid in cash in full on placement of such order by the Customer.
The Customer acknowledges that it has received value as at the date of first delivery of Goods under these Terms of Credit and that nothing in these Terms of Credit is an agreement that a Security Interest created herein attaches at a later time than the time specified in section 40(1) of the PPSA, or an agreement to subordinate a Security Interest under these Terms of Credit in favour of any person.
Each Security Interest created under these Terms of Credit is a continuing security, notwithstanding any intermediate payments or settlements of accounts or anything else and is in addition to, and is not to be merged with, any other security or guarantee expressed or intended to be security for any Secured Money or any other obligations owing by the Customer to the Supplier.
Time is of the essence in respect of the Customer’s obligations under these Terms of Credit.
