Goods Sold to a customer and he has returned it after several months and now he claims payment, our invoice states goods once sold will not be taken back, whether this will amount to be a legally enforceable monetary debt, whether the customer can go to a court of law for a recovery of debt??????
If the conditions stipulate that goods once sold cannot be taken back until and unless the warranty or other conditions of contract is violated, the buyer cannot seek relief of refund by dumping back the goods to the seller.
Has the goods been returned in the same good condition and whether the gooods is perishable item or non-perishable?
However, the clause in the invoice is binding, hence you can challenge his claim accordingly.
Company issues a Purchase Order and pays advance against the purchase order but they have not taken delivery of the goods, multiple requests were made through email to take the goods but there was no response now they a claiming the payment to be made to them, can it be a legally enforceable debt can they go for a court of law for a recovery of debt???
If they have made the payment but have not taken delivery then it becomes the responsibility of them however since the goods have not been delivered it becomes your duty to deliver the same as per the agreement since the payment has already been made.
You may see if there is a clause to deduct and refund the sale consideration amount in such event.
