3. Where a contract stipulates that the price of any service given therein is tentative, as may be the case, for example, where the price has been determined on the basis of an estimate of the number of units only, the final price calculation shall be based on the number of units in the target language and/or the scope of the work involved and on the contractor’s costs, and the final price will be determined using the prices given in the contractor’s price list at the time when, and at the place where the service is rendered and, where the price list does not contain such prices, using the usual prices at the time and at the place of the service provision.
4. Unless expressly otherwise stipulated, all prices as well as any other amounts are exclusive of VAT.
5. The price list of the contractor’s concerned establishment becomes an integral part of the contract on the effective date thereof, and it will be used as the basis for charging all services rendered under the contracts concluded from that date on.
6. For individual jobs, the invoicing will take place on the date of the taxable supply, and for services rendered under contracts entered into for longer periods of time, it will take place retroactively, at all times on the last day of each month. Any under- or overpayments and any other claims will be cleared as part of the monthly invoicing for the following month.

the essentials of a tax document (hereinafter also referred to as invoices) on the date of the taxable supply; for contracts entered into for longer periods of time, the invoices must include all services rendered during the preceding month up to the fifteenth day of the following month.

to the contractor’s account.

11. In the event of a late payment, the client’s payment, regardless of its identification, is initially used to cover the default interest accrued and any contractual fine(s), and the balance of the payment is used to cover the principal(s) of the debt(s) in the order of their maturity.
12. Where the client is late with a payment due to the contractor against a tax document for a partial or a full advance payment, with regard to the date indicated therein, and/or if the client is late with the payment of any amount due for more than 30 days from its maturity date, the contractor may
12.1. withdraw from the contract, whereas, for contracts entered into for longer periods of time, in case of the above, all specific contracts under such longer-term contract on which the contractor is yet to deliver cease to apply on the date of such termination, and/or
