Delinquent accounts will be subject to a service charge on past due amounts of one and one-half percent (1 1/2%) per month (or, if less, the maximum amount permitted by law).

Customer shall also include its account number with any remittance. Failure to supply LOOKCHEM with such remittance detail will result in additional processing delays and may affect the credit status of pending or future Customer purchase orders. When Customer wishes to apply one or more credit memos towards a payment amount owed LOOKCHEM, Customer agrees to provide LOOKCHEM, on a timely basis, the specific credit memo number(s) and amount(s) to be applied, in addition to the remittance information requirements above. If Customer does not provide such information on a timely basis, LOOKCHEM shall apply any such credit memos to outstanding receivables, beginning with the most-aged receivables first.
