Article 12. Prices and payments
- Unless expressly stated otherwise, all amounts stated by Woosa and payable by the Licensee are exclusive of VAT, on the understanding that an offer addressed to Consumers includes amounts (including) VAT.
- If the Agreement has already lasted over six months, Woosa is entitled to change the agreed price annually on 1 January. In that case, the Licensee must in any case agree to an increase in the price insofar as that increase is determined using the following indexation clause: the gain is determined by multiplying the last applicable prices by a fraction whose numerator is the index figure that applies to October before the increase and whose denominator is the index figure that applies to October of the previous year.
