Welcome to our final webinar of our 6-Part School Law Series.
Be it employment concerns, family breakdown or sickness, parents are frequently defaulting on their obligation to pay fees as and when they fall due. Unfortunately, there comes a point where the school needs to recover the unpaid fees.
We look at steps that schools can take to recover and minimise the impact of unpaid enrolment fees, and what clauses can be introduced into the Enrolment Contract to minimise losses suffered. How to effectively document a Compromise Arrangement (which effectively is an amendment to the enrolment contract) will also be examined.
We consider the risks of charging interest on overdue fees including unlicensed money lending under consumer credit code and how to avoid them.
Creative use of Deductible Gift Recipient Necessitous Circumstances Fund money will also be explained.
Who will benefit:
- Business Managers/Bursars;
- Accounts payable staff.
Presenter: James Tan, Associate.
