6. The Business Collaboration with CENTILI will refer to one of the following models:
6. A) SUPPLY OF EDC THROUGH THE CENTILI PLATFORM WITH CENTILI AS AN INTERMEDIARY
Within the countries where the declaration and payment of Value Added Tax (VAT) or any similar sales tax for supply of EDC to End – Users (“b2c” supply) is legally incumbent on the Network Operator(s), the Network Operator(s)/CENTILI Partners, as well as CENTILI, are acting as Intermediaries, as defined above and Your fees shall be net of any sales taxes;
The billing process shall be the following:
You will invoice CENTILI on a monthly basis for the fees for the reference month based on the Settlement Data. Reference month is the calendar month for which settlement is being reconciled. Settlement Data is due from CENTILI to You within fifteen (15) days from the receipt of the amounts net of VAT from the Network Operators or CENTILI Partners.
You will submit an invoice to CENTILI as soon as possible after the receipt of Settlement Data and will clearly mark on the invoice that it is related to the supply of Electronic Digital Content.
The payments of the fees/payout shall be due thirty (30) days upon the receipt of the invoice.
6. B) CENTILI AS TECHNOLOGY PROVIDER
In this model applicable to territories within the countries where the Network Operators disclaim its liability for VAT you are obliged to declare and pay VAT (the „VAT Pass Through Model). Within EU it can be done through the so called Mini One Stop Shop (“MOSS”) system, for which prior registration is necessary, in a timely manner, or to register for VAT in all the countries where EDC is offered to End-Users and fulfil such obligation, in case the You are not registered in one of the European Union countries.
Under the VAT Pass Through model, b oth Parties agree that CENTILI participates in collecting payments owed to You by providing technology platform that allows the values of sales made by the Clients to End-users to be communicated to the mobile network operators for billing purposes, and therefore:
a. CENTILI is not involved in the production, resale, supply or delivery of EDC supply and is not involved in authorizing the charge, the delivery, nor in setting the terms and conditions of the EDC supply.
b. CENTILI is not liable for any VAT due on any EDC supply made to End-Users by You within EU.
c. Subject to the clause 4. below, You will be the sole suppliers of EDC to the End-Users and are responsible for all taxes and/or any other liabilities as set out in the Agreement including but not limited to VAT.
d. You will not be liable for making available to the End-User an invoice document showing that You are liable for VAT and the provision/supply of the services.
The billing process shall be as follows:
CENTILI shall pay You the difference between:
a) The amount received from Network Operators; and
b) The transaction fees CENTILI shall be charging to You in respect of the CENTILI Services.
The amounts stated above within the parts a) and b) shall be contained within the Settlement Data which shall be provided to you within fifteen (15) days after CENTILI receives the payouts from the Network Operators. If you agree with the Settlement Data, You will express your consent as soon as possible after receiving the Settlement Data. The payments of the fees/payout shall be due thirty (30) days upon the receipt of Your consent.
7. If You dispute the Settlement Data You must notify CENTILI within thirty (30) days after the receipt of such Data or the claims to such payments are considered waived. The dispute notification shall contain all the details regarding the dispute and the reasons thereof and the relevant proof in support of its dispute. The amounts received from the Network Operators or CENTILI Partners shall always be the basis for resolving any discrepancy that may occur. If the dispute is within seven per cent (7%) of the total underpayment, the Parties agree to forgive the difference in dispute.
8. Unless otherwise already provided to CENTILI, You will provide Your registered business address and specification of the legal form, as well as the tax/VAT (VAT ID) number under which the VAT is declared for the services provided by You to End-Users within 15 days from the Commencement Date. You will be deemed to remain tax resident in the same territory unless it notifies CENTILI of a change of tax residency on thirty (30) days prior written notice. In the event that CENTILI is not reasonably informed of a change in Your tax residence, You shall indemnify CENTILI against any costs (including but not limited to withholding tax and any accrued interest and penalties) incurred by CENTILI due to such failure to inform.
9. Should You not be the party providing the EDC to the End-Users, You warrant that You will contractually bind the actual service provider with the obligations stated in this Agreement.
10. CENTILI shall be entitled to make any deduction or withholding required by law from any payment payable under this Terms and in the event that a withholding tax or deduction is payable by CENTILI, CENTILI shall pay any revenue payable net of the applicable withholding and deductions required by law to You.
11. In respect of Clause 5.6, CENTILI shall supply evidence to Your reasonable satisfaction that CENTILI has accounted to the relevant authority for the sum withheld or deducted and shall provide all such assistance as may be reasonably requested by You in recovering the amount of the withholding.
12. In the event that a double taxation treaty applies which provides for a reduced withholding tax rate, CENTILI shall only withhold and pay the reduced tax on Your behalf and for Your account if an appropriate exemption certificate is issued by the competent tax authority and provided by You to CENTILI.
13. If CENTILI, in good faith, makes a payment as applicable without set-off, counterclaim, or required withholding or deduction and a subsequent audit identifies that a withholding or deduction should have been made from such payment, You shall be liable to pay this withholding or deduction to the relevant authority or (if CENTILI makes the payment to the relevant authority) to CENTILI. In addition, in the event that an audit identifies that the withholding or deduction has not been made due to Your fault as applicable, the You shall also pay any interest and penalties due thereon and shall indemnify CENTILI in respect of any such residual liability. Either party shall take reasonable actions in order to mitigate penalties, where possible according to the local legislation.
14. In the event that due charges have not been paid by You, then CENTILI shall be entitled to suspend (i.e. stop) the provision of CENTILI services until further full due payment has been made by You. In the event that any payment due under this Agreement is not paid on the due date for payment then CENTILI shall be entitled to charge a late payment charge of 1 % monthly or 12% annually from the date due until such amount is paid.
15. It is hereby agreed that CENTILI shall execute the payment of Your payout/fees when they are equivalent to, or higher than the amount of 500,00 (five hundred) EURO (the “Minimum Payout”). Should Your payout/fees for the particular settlement period be lower than the Minimum Payout, CENTILI shall accumulate this amount until it reaches the Minimum Payout. Once reached the Minimum Payout it will trigger the obligation on CENTILI to make the payment of your payout. You hereby acknowledge that constraints of this Clause are imposed on CENTILI by Network Operators on which CENTILI is dependent for the collection of the monies from the End Users. CENTILI reserves the right to retain Your payout/fees in the event they don’t reach Minimum Payout within one (1) year from the entering into this Agreement.
16. The transaction costs related to Your payout/fees shall be borne by You. This includes, without limitation, the fees and charges levied by the banks or any other financial institutions, including any correspondent banks. You acknowledge that amount of 8,00 (eight) EUR levied on the payout/fees is therefore borne by You for each for transactions outside the European Union and 1,00 (one) EUR for each transaction within the European Union.
7.1. CENTILI provides the CENTILI service to You and/or further supplies the provided EDC on an "AS IS" basis, subject to the clauses and conditions of these Terms.
