When filling in the application please make sure that you are as precise
as possible with your descriptions. Some customers have unfortunately
been refused an account because they have failed to give an accurate
description. For example - someone who is selling herbal products, may
simply put 'Health care supplements'. However this can easily be misconstrued
to mean pharmaceutical tablets, pills etc. However, if a description
of '100% herbal products such as vitamins and protein supplements' had
been entered then it would have passed the initial stage.
A number of businesses try to apply using false details and/or business
descriptions e.g selling DVD's but in fact selling medication. As you
can imagine this wastes alot of time for all parties involved, chiefly
us. For this reason, anyone who knowingly provides wrong information
will be charged a £150 +VAT Fee
More importantly this practice is illegal
This is classed under UK law as 'trying to acquire products and services
under false pretenses with the aim to commit fraud'. As you can imagine
we take this very seriously and anyone caught doing so will have their
business details past over to the appropriate authorities.
Any company who changes their business model must inform us as soon
as possible, otherwise their account could be closed with immediate
effect and no refund given.
