A student declares that the information supplied on the enrolment form or otherwise in connection with their application is complete and correct and that the giving of false or incomplete information may lead to the refusal of the application or suspension or expulsion from the course (without refund) and/or, as applicable, withdrawal of visa support.
    3. All amounts quoted include VAT (where applicable), except where stated otherwise. ACA fees are quoted exclusive of VAT.
    4. Kaplan Financial acts as agent for Kaplan Publishing in collecting payments for any study materials supplied (except where stated otherwise).

      2.

Credit or debit card details are collected over a secure link; and
      3. If you choose to pay by selecting the “invoice my employer” link, this will only be accepted by Kaplan Financial if your employer has provided authorisation and has approved credit terms with Kaplan Financial and Kaplan Financial will review your order and invoice your employer directly.

      1. The course fee is either set out in the enrolment form and/or will be notified to you by a Kaplan Financial customer representative;
      2. If you choose for payment of the course fee to be made by invoicing your employer, this will only be accepted by Kaplan Financial if your employer has provided authorisation and has approved credit terms with Kaplan Financial and Kaplan Financial will review your order and invoice your employer directly (see g below).

    11. The provision of the course is contingent upon Kaplan Financial having received cleared funds from you or your employer (if you select to invoice your employer) in respect of the course fee for the relevant course. Without prejudice to Kaplan Financial’s rights and remedies under these terms and conditions, if any sum payable is not paid on or before the due date (being the date the course is booked if you are responsible for paying the course fee or within 30 days from the date of the invoice if your employer is responsible for paying the course fee (subject as provided in g iii above)), Kaplan Financial reserves the right, forthwith and at Kaplan Financial’s sole discretion, to suspend the provision to you of the relevant course and/to withdraw visa support.
