If you fail to pay the invoice by the due date and without prejudice to any rights of us, you shall: forfeit any discount given in that invoice or in any other way agreed; and pay interest on any overdue amount from the date on which payment was due to the date of actual payment (whether before or after judgment) on a daily basis at a rate of 3% interest over the base rate from the time quoted by the Bank of England and reimburse to us all costs and expenses (including legal costs) incurred in the collection of any overdue amount.
