- Following each delivery, a statement will be forwarded, for variable direct debit customers, at the beginning of the month following the month in which the fuel is delivered, or for monthly direct debit customers, a minimum of six-monthly.
- Title to goods supplied remains the property of Northern Energy until all sums due to the Company for that Product are paid. Any risk relating to the product is that of Northern Energy until such time as the Product has been delivered into your tank, at which time the risk passes from Northern Energy to you.
