Tan tax..new agreements needed for EFT customers?
 
How will we go about all our EFT members?
We have about 580 EFTS, some of them dont even come in...how do we go about taxing them when we can not legally charge them more without the proper paperwork..ie. them agreeing to a higher draft coming out of their account every month.

Hmmmm... I am. Buy them again my EFT contract says two things: (these are summarized here)

1: Agreement may change at any time without notice.
2: Prices may change at any time without notice.

If yours does not say something like that, fire the person who wrote em! Check yours over, you may have yourself covered.

yes, in ours we have to put the amount for the monthly draft. We DO NOT have something in there that says prices may change anytime without notice.
Our customers wouldn't sign it if that was stated.

Thats funny. Pretty much ANYTHING you sign up for says that. My cell phone contract does, my Vonage contract does, my Time Warner internet contract does... etc, etc...

Well at least I am covered! Looks like you have A LOT of paper work to do! And a lot of cancelations with those inactives I bet...

Mine reads as Unity's does.

In addition, I will be adding "and all applicable taxes".

I had a credit card agreement that had this kind of verbage in it. When they tried to alter that agreement by raising those rates above what was stated in the contract I sued for breach of contract, fraud and asking for punitive damages. Of course I did try to reason with them prior to suing. Due to the fact that I did not agree to the new terms of the agreement or use the card. I will let you know how it plays out, we are in year 2, maybe they think i will just go away.

Why would you sue? It's not breach of contract when the terms were disclosed and you accepted them by signing.

Just because you put in a contract that you can change the terms doesn't mean the customer will be required to abide by them. This is true with credit card agreements hence if a contract is changed, the customer has the option to opt out of the new terms.

So under your thinking you could raise an eft from $19.99 to $99.99 and the customer would have no recourse. What you are hoping is the $5-$20 doesn't seem like an $80 increase and people don't pursue any legal recourse because it is only $5-$20.

My alarm company tried the same thing 36 month contract at 15.95 a month. After 20 months they raised what they were drafting to 19.95 with no notice. I called them up gave them my contract # they looked it up refunded the excessive amount charged, apologized and have charged me correctly since.

I accepted the terms of the contract but when they changed the contract, I did not accept the new terms of the agreement. Yes you can change the terms but the new contract, to be enforceable must be agreed upon by both parties.
