Terms and Conditions – Booking a Course
Policy Updated May 16
These Terms and Conditions apply to bespoke services provided by Beyond the Edge (BtE).
For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, ‘bespoke services’ shall mean bespoke courses, private coaching and/or other services supplied by BtE to a client as set out in an agreed quotation or estimate prepared by BtE.
Basis of Contract
BtE shall prepare a quotation or estimate setting out the bespoke services required by a client. On receipt by BtE of the client’s written acceptance of the quotation or estimate (and any supporting specification) a contract for bespoke services will be deemed to have been formed on these Terms and Conditions.
Any quotation or estimate given by BtE to a client shall be valid for a period of 30 calendar days.
These Terms and Conditions shall apply to the contract to the exclusion of any terms or conditions that the client seeks to impose or incorporate, or that are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.
Supply of Services
BtE shall deliver the services to the client in accordance with the agreed quotation or estimate (including any specification) in all material respects.
BtE may make changes to the services that are necessary to comply with any safety requirement or applicable law, or to deal with any Force Majeure event (see below), or which do not materially affect the nature and quality of the services to be provided. BtE will notify the client of any changes and any cost implications.
BtE shall use its reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates set out in the agreed quotation or estimate, though time shall not be of the essence in the performance of BtE’s obligations.

BtE shall also be entitled to charge the client for:
An estimate of any expenses and costs will be set out in the agreed quotation or estimate.
If payment terms are not set out in the agreed quotation or estimate, BtE shall invoice its fees and any expenses and third party costs to the client monthly in arrears or on completion of the contract . The client must pay each invoice by bank transfer in sterling in cleared funds within 14 calendar days of the invoice date.
All amounts payable by the client under the contract are exclusive of VAT. Where VAT is payable the client shall, on receipt of a VAT invoice from BtE, pay to BtE the additional amounts in respect of VAT at the same time as payment for the supply of the services is due.
If a client fails to make any payment due to BtE by the due date, the client shall pay BtE interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% above Lloyds Bank’s base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue daily until the overdue amount is paid, whether before or after judgment. The client will pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
All payments due under these Terms and Conditions must be made in full without any set-off, deduction or withholding except as required by law.
Changes to Services
If after accepting a quotation or estimate, a client wishes to change or add to the services to be provided it must inform BtE as soon as possible. BtE will use its reasonable endeavours to make the necessary changes: any additional fees (and related expenses and costs) will be agreed with, and invoiced to, the client.
If, due to an event of Client Default (see below) or Force Majeure (see below), BtE has to make changes to the services (including how, when or where they are delivered), it will notify the client as soon as reasonably practicable, together with any cost implications.
The client is responsible at all times for any personal property and equipment they use in connection with the contract and for ensuring that such property and equipment is suitable and safe for its intended use. BtE will not be responsible for any loss or damage to a client’s personal property or equipment used in connection with the contract.
