TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR MURABAHA BUSINESSES

The following terms and conditions for Businesses (Business Terms) explains the Beehive online platform (Beehive), how to become a business on Beehive (Business) and use the website www.beehive.ae (Site). These Business Terms explain all of the Beehive products, some of which may not be relevant to you.

We, us and our means Beehive P2P Limited, a company incorporated in the Dubai International Financial Centre, under licence number CL2352. Beehive P2P Limited is regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority to “operating a loan crowdfunding platform” under license number F004422.

References to you and your mean you as a user of the Site and the services provided via Beehive, whether as an individual or on behalf of the entity you represent, provided in each case that the business criteria set out below are satisfied.

By becoming a Business, you must comply with these Business Terms. These Business Terms should be read alongside, and are in addition to, our General Terms of Use and our Finance Conditions (Murabaha Conditions) (both accessible online at www.beehive.ae/terms-and-conditions) and our Privacy Policy (accessible online at www.beehive.ae/privacy-policy) which are incorporated in the Business Terms by reference. You should read each of these documents carefully to ensure you understand and agree to be bound by them.

These Business Terms create legal obligations with which you will be bound to comply. By using the Site and the financing services secured via Beehive, you confirm that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Business Terms, the General Terms of Use, the Murabaha Conditions and the Privacy Policy (each as amended from time to time).

Terms defined in the General Terms of Use, the Murabaha Conditions and the Privacy Policy shall have the same meaning when used herein, unless otherwise defined herein.

Where you are acting as an appointed representative of a partnership, company or other business you confirm that you have the authority to enter into these Business Terms on behalf of the partnership, company or business you represent and that your partnership, company or business agree to be bound by these Business Terms. If you do not agree to these Business Terms, you will not be able to become a Business on Beehive.

Each Murabaha Contract entered into between an Investor and a Business comprises the Murabaha Conditions. The Murabaha Contract is a separate binding legal agreement directly between you and the Investors who finance you. Your relationship with the Investors is governed exclusively by the relevant Murabaha Contract. For the avoidance of doubt, we are not party to your Murabaha Contract. Each Murabaha Contract includes the Murabaha Conditions and the specific Key Contract Terms that are relevant to that Murabaha Contract.

You will be invited to accept the Murabaha Conditions during your registration to use Beehive and agree to be bound by them, in your capacity as a Business, in all your financing transactions entered into on Beehive.

If you enter into a Murabaha Contract as an appointed representative of a partnership, company, or other business you will be required to warrant that you are duly authorised to act on its behalf. Breach of this requirement may result in legal action being taken against you personally.

We may allow authorised agents, such as brokers, to make a financing application on behalf of a third party that will be the principal Business provided that the authorised agent or broker is able to evidence its authority to act for the principal Business. If you are an authorised agent and you make a financing application on behalf of a principal Business, provided the required documents are provided, we will be entitled to treat the financing application as having been made with the principal Business’ full authority. These Business Terms shall apply equally to businesses who choose to make financing applications through authorised agents.

  2. The Approval Process

    1. We use our own internal guidelines and policies when assessing Business applications. As part of the registration process we will carry out “know your business” procedures to authenticate your identity, the identity of your business, as well as the identity of certain key individuals associated with the business and people authorised to act on its behalf. We will do this by conducting searches using publicly available information and by contacting third parties, including credit reference agencies. We may require you to send us notarised copies of certain documents as part of this process, including passports and other identification documents, current and past bank statements for a specified period, powers of attorney and any other documentation we may require in order for Beehive to be able to carry out, and be satisfied that it has complied with, all necessary “know your business” or other similar checks under all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not provide all the documentation requested by us, you will not be able to become a business on Beehive.
    2. Directors and/or shareholders, partners, sole traders and members (as applicable) of the Business which wish to raise financing may be required to give a personal guarantee, as well as any other security that we deem appropriate, before a request for funding (RFF) is posted on the Site. We also reserve the right to request personal guarantees from directors or shareholders of the Business, to support any RFF before it is posted on the Site.
    3. You will be required to specify the sum of money you wish to raise through Beehive when you register to become a Business.
    4. Once you have provided all the requested information to us we will review it and confirm to you by email whether or not your application to become a Business has been successful. If your application is successful, you will be notified by email and will be allocated a unique reference number (URN). This communication signifies that you are registered on Beehive as a Business and are eligible to apply for financing. You must use your URN for all your transactions and communications on Beehive.
    5. We will have no liability to you if your application to become a Business is ultimately unsuccessful and will in no circumstances be liable to provide you with further details as to why your application has failed.
    6. You warrant, represent and undertake to Beehive that all information provided to us, including in the course of the business registration and finance application process will be complete, true and accurate in all respects and not misleading in any way. You acknowledge that fraud and fraudulent misrepresentation are crimes under UAE Federal Law No 3 of 1987 and may be punishable by a fine and / or a custodial sentence.
    7. It is your responsibility to ensure that the information we hold on record for you is up to date. You agree to inform us as soon as reasonably possible if any of the information you provide to us changes at any time.
    8. You agree that we have the ongoing right to obtain and hold credit data on the Business, its directors and shareholders directly from the Al Etihad Credit Bureau  and you agree that we can share data on the Business with the Al Etihad Credit Bureau.
  3. BUSINESS FINANCE AND PROJECT FINANCE

    1. This section relates only to business finance (Business Finance) and project finance (Project Finance) and describes:
      1. An overview of the Business Finance and Project Finance process
      2. Our role
    2. The Financing Process

      1. Once we have accepted your application to raise funds, you will receive an email confirmation from us and an RFF page will be displayed on the Site via the Beehive marketplace (Marketplace). The RFF page will invite investors on Beehive to fund your financing request. The RFF page will be visible to prospective investors who will be able to decide whether or not to finance your part of the funds requested based on the information available in an auction.
      2. The Key Contract Terms which we will provide to you and which forms part of the Murabaha Contract will specify the full legal name of your Business as well as any company registration or commercial licence details. Please see our privacy policy for more information on which details are provided to, and those which are withheld from, prospective investors and Investors. We reserve the right to amend details you provide on your RFF page (except information identifying you) where we deem appropriate at our sole discretion.
      3. The information on the RFF page can be edited by you at any time before the auction begins. Once the auction has started you will not be able to amend the RFF page until the auction period expires, or if you accept financing, you will not be able to amend the RFF page until such time as the entire financing has been repaid in full. You may, however, select to cancel your RFF prior to the expiry of the auction period.
      4. Once your RFF page is posted, the auction process will begin immediately and prospective investors will be invited to start bidding to advance your Business parts of the finance amount you have requested (Murabaha Parts). The auction process will automatically calculate the profit rate applicable for each part of the financing. The rate of profit will be calculated in accordance with a number of predetermined factors including the number of bids received to fund your RFF. As the number of bids made to fund your financing increases the profit rate applicable will change. The profit rate ultimately applied will only be fixed once the auction period expires, or if earlier, at the time you accept the financing offered.
    3. Our Role

      1. Our principal role is to act as a conduit to bring you together with prospective investors, to provide a stream-lined process for entering into Murabaha Contracts and to co-ordinate and facilitate the payment and collection of sums due under or in connection with those financings (including certain limited actions if you default, as set out in these Business Terms), in some cases, in coordination with our duly licensed third parties.
      2. We shall issue your RFF with a risk band classification at the time your RFF is processed. The risk band classification allocated shall be based on information included in your application and the results of credit reports obtained from credit reference agencies. We are not obliged to check or edit the information submitted or uploaded to your RFF page and shall have no liability to you in this regard or in respect of the risk band classification you are allocated, or for the ultimate success (or lack thereof), of your RFF. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the information submitted to us is complete, true and accurate and not misleading in any way.
      3. The provision of a risk band classification is intended to be indicative only and an Investor will be liable to form their own opinion regarding the creditworthiness of you as a business and undertake their own research, analysis and assessment of each Business for each financing, and where appropriate, may seek their own independent financial advice.
      4. We accept no responsibility and disclaim all liability for any information about you made available to prospective investors through Beehive. We may from time to time, but accept no obligation to, update or amend your information on your RFF (including between when an RFF is first made available on the Site and during the term of any subsequent Murabaha Contract).
      5. You will have three (3) working days from the date on which the auction period expires to accept or reject the aggregated financing request offer (Murabaha Offer). If you do not accept the Murabaha Offer within this period your Murabaha Offer will lapse at the end of the fifth day, any funds bid will be released to Investors and your RFF will be removed from the Site.
      6. There is no obligation on you to accept bids made on your RFF. Where you reject a Murabaha Offer or where you allow a Murabaha Offer to lapse no Murabaha Contract will be formed. Once a Murabaha Offer has lapsed or been rejected by you, you will be unable to recall it and may be unable to secure a Murabaha Offer on the same or similar terms.
      7. If your RFF has not been fully funded within a period of ten (10) working days beginning on the start date of the auction process, we reserve the right to remove your RFF from the Site.
  4. INVOICE FINANCING

    1. This section relates only to invoice financing (Invoice Financing) and describes:
      1. How to become enabled for Invoice Financing
      2. Investors on Beehive and how they set their criteria
      3. The financing process and the uploading of invoices
    2. The Process of obtaining Invoice Financing from Beehive

      1. Beehive will undertake a full credit review on your Business as described above and we will also look at your customers (Customers) that you wish to obtain finance against. If you pass our credit review, you will be given a credit facility (Credit Facility) which will be the maximum outstanding finance that you will be able to have under our Invoice Financing terms with you. As a condition precedent of obtaining finance from the Investors, we will require a signed undated cheque for the full amount of the Credit Facility from you.
    3. Investors on Beehive

      1. Our Site has a number of Investors who have agreed to the terms and conditions for Investors (Investor Terms) and have pre-set their investment criteria (Investor Parameters) based upon their desired returns and attitude to risk. Investors must set the following Investor Parameters to be able to finance an Invoice Financing RFF via our Site:
        1. total exposure that they wish to have on one (1) RFF;
        2. maximum length of financing, being the longest term they wish to finance for; and
        3. the risk bands that you wish to invest in.
      2. Our Site amalgamates all the Investors and their Investor Parameters and matches these with your requirements as set out below. Once an Investor has set their Investor Parameters they have made a Murabaha Offer to potential Businesses. An Investor can amend their Investor Parameters at any time but not if a Business has accepted their Murabaha Offer or a Murabaha Contract has been entered into.
    4. The Financing Process – uploading your Customer’s Invoices and agreeing the Cost of Funding

      1. Once you have a Credit Facility, you input the RFF which shall include details of the invoices you are looking to finance via the Site. The details will include: (i) the Customer, which will be chosen from the drop-down menu of your pre- approved Customers; (ii) the value of the invoice; (iii) the date of the invoice; (iv) the payment date of the invoice; and (v) the expected payment date (Expected Payment Date) of the invoice.
      2. You then choose what percentage funding you are seeking against the RFF which can be up to 90%. The Site automatically matches your requirements with the total funds on the Site and the pre-set Investor Parameters and provides you with the lowest cost of financing available for the quantum and period you are seeking (Cost of Financing) from the pool of Investors. This will include the percentage value of the invoice you are looking to finance (Capital) and the Investors’ profit associated with the financing for the term you have stated (Profit). You can amend the percentage funding upwards or downwards and the Site will automatically recalculate the lowest Cost of Financing available.
      3. If you agree with the Cost of Financing provided by the Site, then you must choose the “Agree Financing” button. By doing so you are accepting the Murabaha Offer made by the Investors via our Site (subject to the conditions in this paragraph). This reserves the Murabaha Offer for twenty-four (24) hours. You must then scan and email the supporting documents (Supporting Documents) to team@beehive.ae. The Supporting Documents must include:
        1. the invoice you are looking to finance which must clearly show all of the Invoice Financing terms; and
        2. proof of receipt from the Customer in the form of a received stamp, goods received note, delivery note, or any other form of documentation pre-agreed with us.
      4. There is no obligation on you to accept the Murabaha Offer proposed by the Site. However, by choosing the “Agree Financing” button you are bound by the Business Terms and have accepted the Murabaha Offer from the Investors.
      5. If you do not provide the Supporting Documents within twenty-four (24) hours, the Murabaha Offer will terminate and no Murabaha Contract will be formed. Once a Murabaha Offer has terminated or been rejected by you, you will be unable to recall it and you may be unable to secure a Murabaha Offer on the same or similar terms.
  5. Murabaha Contract

    1. Once your RFF is fully funded (for Business Finance, Project Finance and Invoice Financing) and you agree with the terms you will be invited to electronically accept or reject the Murabaha Offer. Once you have accepted a Murabaha Offer it cannot be cancelled or amended by you for any reason. If you accept the Murabaha Offer you are agreeing to enter into a Murabaha Contract with each and every investor for each Murabaha Part.
    2. As a condition precedent of the Murabaha Contract, you must provide signed cheques from a recognised UAE bank for the financing secured:
      1. For Business Finance and Project Finance, this will be via one undated cheque for the full amount of the financing secured, and either
        1. separate cheques for each instalment of the financing which will be payable in accordance with the Key Contract Terms dated on the dates that each payment will fall due; or
        2. one undated signed cheque for one monthly instalment and agreement that all monthly instalments will be made via an electronic transfer.
        3. You will have three (3) working days from the day you accept the Finance Offer to deliver the cheques to Beehive at our office address
      2. For Invoice Financing, this will be via one undated cheque for the Credit Facility secured (as described above).
    3. If, at any time during the term of a Murabaha Contract, the authorised signatory who signed the cheques provided is no longer authorised to bind you for any reason whatsoever, you agree to provide replacement cheques signed by a duly authorised signatory within three (3) working days of any such change to the authority becoming effective.
    4. If we have requested you to provide, during the RFF evaluation process, personal guarantees from directors or shareholders of the Business, such guarantees must also be provided in a form acceptable to us, as a further condition precedent of the Murabaha Contract.
    5. No profit will accrue on your financing until the Murabaha Contract is formed.
    6. The Murabaha Contract will incorporate the Key Contract Terms, which set out the specific details of the financing you have accepted, and shall incorporate the Murabaha Conditions. No Murabaha Contract shall be formed until the conditions precedent have been fulfilled. Once satisfied you will receive confirmation in the ‘My Account’ section of Beehive that the Murabaha Contract has been formed.
    7. In all Murabaha Contracts and Murabaha Part transfer documentation we will identify your Business, and its registration and contact details and each Investor for a Murabaha Part will also be separately identified and their name and passport number (if they are investing in a personal capacity) or their company name and registration details will be disclosed to you. Any notices and communications between a Business and any Investors should be sent to us. You acknowledge and agree that in order for binding legal obligations to be created between a Business and Investors pursuant to a Murabaha Contract or Transfer Certificate(s), we must disclose the identity of your Business and its registration and contact details to your Investors, and you hereby consent to such disclosure for this purpose.
  6. Credit of Murabaha Amount

    1. Any financing you secure via Beehive shall be registered against your individual Beehive account (Beehive Account) on our automated system. Once the Murabaha Contract has been formed, we shall credit funds from the relevant Investors’ accounts to the UAE bank account nominated by you. This process shall be managed by our licensed third party administrator.
  7. Beehive’s Fees

    1. For Business Finance and Project Finance:
      1. We will apply a listing fee for each RFF of AED800, which will be deducted from the financing. The listing fee covers the costs of external credit reports and our administration costs associated with reviewing and listing your RFF on the Site.
      2. If you accept a Murabaha Offer, we will charge you additional fees as compensation for the administrative services we perform. The fees charged shall be as per the prevailing fee schedule published on the Site.
      3. We will deduct the listing fee and any additional fees from the financing amount before it is transferred to you so you will receive the amount of financing less such fees.
    2. For Invoice Financing:
      1. We have the right to apply a pre-approval fee of AED1,500 for each RFF, which will be deducted from the financing availed pursuant to the first Murabaha Contract. The pre-approval fee covers the costs of external credit reports and our administration costs associated with reviewing and listing of the Business on the Site.
      2. If you accept a Murabaha Offer, we will charge you additional fees as compensation for the administrative services we perform. The fees charged shall be 1% per invoice. We will deduct the additional fees from the financing amount before it is transferred to you so you will receive the amount of financing less such fees.
    3. We reserve the right to waive, reduce or increase the applicable fees from time to time. Any such changes shall be notified to you on the Site.
    4. You acknowledge that all fees payable to us are to compensate us for our, and our third party service providers’, roles in administrating and facilitating your RFFs and financing.
    5. Beehive is VAT registered and its Tax Registration Number assigned by the Federal Tax Authority is 100275274700003.  All business fees are exclusive of VAT which Beehive will add to your request.  You will be issued with a transactional invoice which will enable you to reclaim your VAT if you are registered to do so.
  8. Repaying the Murabaha Financing

    1. All cheques and electronic payments should be made payable to Beehive Service DMCC which is a separate legal entity from Beehive Group and holds Beehive’s segregated client account. All electronic payments should be made payable to Beehive P2P Limited.
    2. For Business Finance and Project Finance:

      1. The frequency and schedule for repayment of your financing will be set out in the Key Contract Terms in the relevant Murabaha Contract. The scheduled repayments payable by you can be viewed on your dashboard on the Site.
      2. Once you have paid the first three instalments, you may repay the entire financing early, at no extra cost, provided you pay in full the profit due until the end of the month in which the financing is repaid in full as well as the principal amount outstanding.
    3. For Invoice Financing

      1. The date of repayment (Repayment Date) and amount for repayment of your financing is set out in the Key Contract Terms. The scheduled repayment payable by you can be viewed in your dashboard section of the Site.
      2. Your repayment is due on the Repayment Date but you may choose to settle the Murabaha Contract early as set out below.
      3. You can choose two repayment methods:
        1. Payment by you to Beehive (Indirect Payment): By Indirect Payment, your Customers pay you for the invoices and you then settle the Murabaha Contract with Beehive.
        2. Payment by your Customers to Beehive (Direct Payment): By Direct Payment, you give your Customers Beehive’s bank detail and the Customer pays Beehive the full invoice amount and then we pay you the excess (Surplus Payment) of the relevant invoice less the Murabaha Contract and associated fees.
      4. If you opt to repay via Direct Payment, you remain fully liable for the financing to the Investors and neither Beehive nor the Investors have any claim over the Customer. Neither Beehive nor the Investors take assignment of the relevant invoice(s) and the title remains with you.
      5. A Business, may repay the entire financing of an invoice early at any time, at no extra cost, provided you pay in full the Murabaha Contract relating to such invoice. You cannot part-pay an individual invoice. On early repayment of the Murabaha Contract, a Business may ask the Investors for a rebate. Any such rebate so granted by the Investors, will be based on the value of the Murabaha Contract in excess over the Cost of Financing as calculated up until the date the early repayment was made. We will calculate the rebate if you have chosen the Direct Method. We will calculate and inform you of the amount of any rebate.
      6. If you have opted for Indirect Payment, then you must make an electronic payment into our Beehive client account or provide a cheque to cover the Murabaha Contract. The electronic transfer must be made within one (1) working day of the Repayment Date and must be gross of bank charges.
  9. Our Appointment as Collection Agent

    1. By accepting the Business Terms, you acknowledge that we are appointed as a collection agent on behalf of each of the Investors who have provided you with financing and shall be entitled to pursue you (directly or indirectly) for collection of monies due and owing in the event of a default in payment of any Murabaha Part(s) availed to you.
    2. You acknowledge and agree that we may in turn appoint a registered and appropriately licenced recovery or debt collection agent. You also acknowledge and agree that we shall have the right to take all and any reasonable action to protect our, and the Investors’, rights as available in any relevant jurisdiction which may include:
      1. registration of liens, charges and similar rights as available; and
      2. any other remedy or action as may be available from time to time in accordance with applicable laws.
  10. Default

    1. If at any time you believe that any cheques given by you to us will not be able to be satisfied in cleared and available funds, when dated and presented by us, please contact us immediately. If a cheque is returned (either due to lack of funds or for technical reasons) or an electronic payment not made, we (ourselves, or through an agent acting on our behalf) will contact you, either by telephone or by visiting your premises within twenty-four (24) hours of notification of non-payment and ask you to explain why. We will, in addition, attempt to recollect the payment the next working day after the payment was due. We have the right to charge you an administrative fee of AED500 if a cheque is returned.
    2. If our reattempt to collect the funds fails three (3) working days after the date payment was originally due, or we have reason to believe that you have left the UAE or reason to believe that you have attempted to defraud the Investors, your account and the relevant Murabaha Contract will be treated as an overdue account (Overdue Account). We will issue you with a written overdue notice via recorded delivery as well as send you a copy via your registered email.
    3. In the event you fail to respond to the request for payment within twenty-four (24) hours, a written legal notice will be issued via recorded delivery as well as your registered email. If you fail to respond to the written legal notice within twenty-four (24) hours you will be in default (Default) and we have the right to date and bank the security cheque(s) held for the full amount of the financing.
    4. We reserve the right to file a criminal case with the Police at any point that we deem necessary to protect the interests of the Investors. We also reserve the right to enforce the guarantees given via the DIFC Courts.
    5. You may become liable to pay further fees in the event that we reattempt to collect the funds and we may refer the default payment to a debt collections agency (Collections Agency), who will attempt to collect the money on each Investors’ behalf.
    6. If the Collections Agency is unable to collect the outstanding funds, we reserve the right to assign the Murabaha Contract, on behalf of the Investors, to us or a third party who may seek recovery of the outstanding amounts through the courts. If such further action is necessary, it is likely that significant costs will be incurred which will be passed on to you as the Business in Default. You agree to indemnify us fully for our costs, expenses, losses and any other liability (including (without limitation) any damages) incurred by us in connection with or arising out of your failure to comply with the Business Terms and/or any Default.
    7. At any time, an Investor may decide to enforce its rights under the Murabaha Contract directly against you and you hereby consent to us providing any of your Investors with your relevant contact details for this purpose.
  11. Late Payment of Invoice Financing Murabaha Contracts

    1. This section only relates to Invoice Financing Murabaha Contracts.
    2. If you do not make the full payment of the Invoice Financing Murabaha Contract by the Repayment Date you will be in Default as set out above. You must contact Beehive and we will discuss the repayment with you. Beehive, on behalf of the Investors, and fully at their discretion, may allow you to extend your financing for another thirty (30) days by entering into a new murabaha contract (Extended Murabaha Contract).
    3. The terms of the Extended Murabaha Contract will be set out in the new key contract terms (Extended Key Contract Terms) and will include, amongst other things, the following:
      1. The term will be 30 days (Extended Repayment Date);
      2. The amount you will be funding will be the combined Capital and the Profit associated with the original Murabaha Contract that you are seeking to extend (Extended Capital);
      3. The Profit associated with the Extended Murabaha Contract will be the pro rata 30-day profit rate that was associated with original Murabaha Contract and will be based off the Extended Capital
      4. There will be two (2) administrative fees that will become payable on the 1st day and the 16th day of the Extended Murabaha Contract (Administrative Fees). Each of the Administrative Fees will be twenty-five percent (25%) of the Profit that was paid under the original Murabaha Contract.
    4. A Business, may repay the entire invoice early at any time, at no extra cost, provided you pay in full the Extended Murabaha Contract relating to the invoice. You cannot part-pay an individual invoice. On early repayment of the Murabaha Contract, a Business may ask the Investors for a rebate. Any such rebate so granted by the Investors, will be based on the value of the Murabaha Contract in excess over the Cost of Financing as calculated up until the date the early repayment was made less the related Administrative Fees. We will calculate and inform you of the amount of any rebate.
    5. A Business can only ask for one (1) extension to a Murabaha Contract, except in exceptional cases agreed by Beehive in advance. If an additional Extended Murabaha Contract is allowed to be entered, cumulative Administrative Fees will continue to be charged every 15 days in addition to those set out in 11.3.4. If you do not make the repayment of the Extended Murabaha Contract by the Extended Repayment Date you will be in Default as set out above and Beehive has the right to apply additional Administrative Fees.
  12. Exclusion of Liability

    1. Membership of Beehive does not in any way constitute an obligation by us to procure funding for you or constitute a warranty by us that funding will be made available.
    2. If any personal guarantee is provided in respect of your obligations as a Business, you personally warrant, and warrant on behalf of all directors, shareholders and members of your Business (as applicable) that there has been no undue influence or inducement of the guarantor to provide such guarantee.
    3. If you are a business on Beehive, you generally cannot also be an Investor while you have financing outstanding. An exception would be where you are providing financing in your own individual capacity but you happen to be a director, owner or representative of a Business raising financing. We retain the right to grant specific exceptions to this role but shall in no circumstances be obliged to do so.
    4. You shall not be entitled to terminate these Business Terms until all outstanding financings have been repaid in full and cleared funds and all fees, costs and expenses otherwise due under these Business Terms have been paid in full and cleared funds. On termination, we will credit your bank account (as notified to us) with any funds we hold for you or send a cheque to the address last provided by you.
