1.2 Any company applying for Credit Facilities will be subject to a credit check via Creditsafe. The report generated by Creditsafe will be reviewed by our directors who will then grant credit facilities based on the report recommendations. Any credit facility provision is at the sole discretion of the Batteries & Solar Ltd Directorship, and we withhold the right to revoke these facilities at any time.

1.3 All credit is personally liable against the relevant authority within the company applying for the account and not the limited company.
