8.2. Our holding of your funds
Funds held for Inventorybase only. We only hold funds on your behalf for the purposes of settling payments due under Workstreams and payment due to us. We recommend that you do not hold dormant balances on the platform and shall charge and deduct £10 from your account each calendar month from the last payment into your account until no money is held in your account. Funds held by us or on our behalf us are not insured nor covered by any compensation scheme and you use it entirely at your own risk. We hold each user’s funds in separate accounts with Stripe.
We agree to make such funds available to the relevant account within 24 hours:
- of Acceptance to the Supplier;
- in the event of cancellation, to the Buyer; or
- such other time as we deem reasonable given the circumstances,
subject to these terms and fraud and anti-money laundering procedures being carried out and deemed successful.
Anti-money laundering. We take our obligations to prevent fraud and money laundering seriously and reserve the right to delay/withhold payments if fraud or money laundering is suspected. All payments for work completed must go via InventoryBase unless we have given express written permission otherwise in relation to a specific payment or invoice. Attempts to pay outside of InventoryBase will lead to sanctions not limited to immediate account suspension and termination. You must immediately report to us any offers to pay or carry out services outside of InventoryBase in respect of a Workstream or Job.
Payments are routinely checked by InventoryBase for fraud prevention purposes. We aim to process these payments and credit funds to the Supplier’s InventoryBase user account within three (3) working days, however we reserve the right to take up to fourteen (14) working days.
8.3. Your obligations
- You shall immediately report any problems or issues encountered with InventoryBase or a Workstream to us.
- The Buyer and Seller must provide feedback on completion of a Workstream and may receive negative feedback on InventoryBase if it fails to do so.
- You shall not (and shall not permit) any third party to either take any action or upload, download, post, submit or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any content, Workstream, or bid on or through the services provided through InventoryBase, including without limitation any user content, that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other right of any other person or entity or violates any law or contractual duty.
- Neither party shall not make a request a release of funds in relation to a Workstream prior to its completion or cancellation. The purpose of funds being held during the Workstream is to provide the Supplier with the security needed for them to undertake the work. A party making a premature request to release funds shall be charged and pay £25 as an administration fee to us in dealing and remedying the request.
- You shall report any cases where funds in relation to a Workstream or Job are requested outside of these terms immediately.
- You shall not engage in any or offer incentives in exchange for feedback (whether positive or otherwise).
- You shall notify us immediately if you receive any offer or incentive to provide feedback.
- You must not publish more than one Bid for each Job available through InventoryBase.
Any breach of the above obligations shall entitle us to temporarily or permanently suspend the account of the party at fault and any other party assisting or engaging with a breach.
Buyer refusal to pay. In the rare event that a Buyer refuses payment for legitimate services performed by a Supplier, we may seek to resolve issues to the satisfaction of all parties to help maintain an effective working relationship between all those concerned.
You agree and understand that we are not a party to the Workstream and, without prejudice to our rights, or the exercise of our rights, under these terms, it is for the Buyer and Supplier to agree a resolution in the event of a dispute. We reserve the right to not become involved in any dispute between Buyer and Supplier and may withdraw any assistance at any time.
Any dispute between Buyer and Supplier must be raised through InventoryBase (“Dispute”).
We may act in any way we consider reasonable in relation to a dispute between the parties, including denying, delaying or releasing payment as we see fit.
Our assistance with a dispute will only be provided if all of the following criteria are met:
- The dispute is raised formally through InventoryBase.
- The Buyer must have an account in good standing, with accurate, honest and up-to-date information and at least one valid and authenticated payment method on file with at least one successful payment.
- The Buyer must agree that funds be held while a dispute is in progress.
- The Supplier’s account must be in good standing, with accurate, honest and up-to-date information.
- If an invoice is disputed the Supplier must submit a Dispute specifically identifying any disputed and non-disputed services and payments within seven (7) days after the applicable invoice being raised.
- If an invoice is not disputed and not paid the Supplier must contact InventoryBase customer support identifying the details of the work that should be paid within ten (10) days after invoice raise.
Payments must be processed through InventoryBase and Stripe. All payments between Buyer and Supplier must be processed through InventoryBase as outlined in these terms, both for work sourced on InventoryBase and for any follow on work between the Buyer and Supplier, either for the same Workstream or another Workstream. A Supplier may seek express written permission from us to allow payment by alternative means for a specific invoice or payment in anticipation or pursuant to any legal action taken.
Payment (or an attempt to pay) outside of InventoryBase in respect of a Workstream is a breach of these terms unless our prior express written consent has been obtained. Such payment (or attempt of) may lead to temporary and/ or permanent suspension of the Buyer and/or Supplier’s account.
We use a third-party service provider, Stripe, to process payments by Buyers and to transfer funds to Suppliers. These third-party payment service providers are regulated and authorised to provide payment services in the countries where they operate. Funds of users are held in separate client accounts via Stripe.
You give permission to us to share the personal information or transactional information with third-party payment service providers where necessary to process payments and provide our services.
Supplier to reimburse for business contracted outside of InventoryBase. The Supplier shall be liable for and make payment to us for any loss of business and legal expenses that we may and do incur in recovering any payment for the Supplier transacting business in respect of a Job, Bid or Workstream outside of InventoryBase. We reserve the right to withdraw payment from any funds held in the Supplier’s Account in order to recover fees due to us or otherwise payable had any such business been transacted through InventoryBase.
We may require information for security reasons. For security reasons, we reserve the right to request additional information from users, including original documents, and to verify documents with issuing institutions.
Therefore, we reserve the right to request the following proofs of identity:
- a copy of a Government issued ID (Passport, Driver’s License or National ID Card);
- a copy of a recent utility bill showing your name and address (less than 3 months old);
- For credit/debit card users (one of the following):
- a copy of the front and back of the card used. For security compliance we recommend that you blank out the central 8 digits of the card number digits, and the last three digits from the number on the back; or
- a bank statement of the card used on your InventoryBase account (less than 3 months old),
and for security compliance you must blank out the central 8 digits of the card number digits.
8.5.2. Leaving Feedback
When the Workstream is completed, both parties are asked to provide both qualitative feedback and a rating from 1-5 across three (3) categories for the other party. This rating influences each user’s ranking on InventoryBase.
The three categories are:
- Quality of report; and
- Speed of delivery.
In order to read review received in respect of a Workstream, feedback must be submitted in respect of such Workstream.
Feedback is published on the member’s profile page when both parties leave their feedback within 30 days since payment in respect of a Workstream. If 30 days have passed, any submitted review is disclosed and users that haven’t left any review will no longer be able to do so.
Any feedback that we deem inappropriate or unsuitable may be removed at our discretion.
8.5.3. Cancellations and refunds
Buyer Workstream refund. A Buyer is entitled to receive a refund of funds held through InventoryBase in respect of a Workstream under the following circumstances:
- no response: the Supplier has not responded in the Workstream within 48 hours of the Acceptance;
- non-performance: the Supplier of a Workstream did not deliver on its obligations under the Workstream,
and subject to payment of our fees that would have been payable had the Workstream been completed.
Buyer and Supplier may mutually agree to a refund however authorisation of such refunds will be subject to a review by us and payment of our fees that would have been payable had the Workstream been completed.
Refunds are only applicable to funds held in through InventoryBase and Stripe in respect of the Workstream. On Acceptance or by releasing funds to the Supplier through InventoryBase/Stripe, the Buyer accepts that this payment is non-refundable.
Buyers shall not file a dispute or reverse (or apply to reverse) payment through their credit card holder, bank or Stripe. Attempts to seek a refund in this way will lead to the Buyer’s account being automatically suspended and/or terminated.
We will process refund requests subject to a review of the refund reason and circumstances to ensure that both parties have complied with these terms and conditions, and that the purpose of the refund is not to avoid any of the parties’ obligations under these terms and conditions. If we reasonably believe that the parties have not complied with these terms and conditions or are seeking to avoid any such obligations we shall not be obliged to make the refund.
InventoryBase rankings following cancellation/refund. Users are strictly discouraged from causing cancellations and refunds. Refunds will impact standing in the InventoryBase marketplace as follows:
- where the Supplier is at fault for the refund (for example, due to no response, poor quality of work or they have cancelled the Workstream), it will negatively impact their Supplier status and rankings;
- where the Buyer is found to be the cause for the refund (for example, an early cancellation due to a change in their business need) it will negatively impact their Buyer status; and
- multiple refunds attributed to a user will lead to temporary and/or permanent restrictions on their account or termination, depending upon the severity/cause and any other relevant factors
We encourage Suppliers and Buyers to try and resolve any disagreements between themselves. However should that not be possible, we can provide assistance as follows:
A Dispute can be raised:
- by the Supplier manually after a Buyer has rejected an invoice;
- By the Buyer manually if the Supplier has not responded or fulfilled its obligations under a Workstream.
To raise a dispute, the Supplier is required to pay a non-refundable fee outlined in the payment section of these terms. We reserve the right to offer the option to open a Dispute to certain users.
For invoice disputes specifically, the amounts taken into consideration are the lower of the amount held pursuant to the Workstream or the invoice amount. If the amount disputed is £100 (or €130 or USD $160) or above, we may reach out to both parties in order to mediate and try and bring the dispute to resolution.
InventoryBase will aim to make a resolution decision on behalf of both parties within seven (7) days. If a mutual resolution has already been agreed between both parties in relation to the Workstream, then the dispute will either be cancelled or resolved in line with the mutual agreement.
In the event of having to make a resolution decision, we will use only the communication in the Workstream as sole evidence, and consider:
- if both parties are acting in good faith and have tried to resolve the issue between themselves before contacting us, including at least a second attempt made between both parties to complete or rectify the Workstream;
- if the Workstream was delivered in accordance with its terms;
For Disputes concerning the quality of the work delivered, we will consider whether the Supplier has met general quality standards and assessments on quality down to perceived taste or requiring specialist technical or subject matter expertise, will not form part of the resolution decision.
In the event of having to make a resolution decision on behalf of the parties, we will notify both parties within fourteen (14) days of the Dispute. The disputed funds shall be dealt with in accordance with the resolution decision and these terms and conditions. Our involvement with the Dispute ends once the resolution in relation to the Dispute has been communicated.
You agree and accept that any payments and/or other actions made by us in accordance with the resolution decision of a Dispute are made in good faith and users shall have no cause of action against us (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) in respect of the resolution decision or any such actions or payments made pursuant to it.
188.8.131.52. Our fees
Our fees. Our fees are for the use of InventoryBase as an intermediate platform and facilitating a Workstream, they do not reflect the outcome of any Workstream and are non-refundable.

Supplier fees. We reserve the right to charge Suppliers a Service Fee in accordance with the Service Fee Structure they have chosen.
|Payment method||InventoryBase Fee|

- The minimum Service Fee per Workstream is £2.50 (excl. VAT).
Optional listing fee. A Buyer may elect to mark a Workstream listing as ‘URGENT’ with a prominent symbol that will make it stand out for an additional fee of £10. This fee is paid to us in return for proactively managing the sourcing of a vetted Supplier.
BACs Transfer. If your bank is located in the United Kingdom, your cleared funds will be paid directly to your local bank account every 14 days.
Bank transfer reversal fees. If your bank transfer gets reversed due to incorrect banking information, wrong bank account type or foreign currency bank account settings limitation, you will be charged a reversal fee of £15.
Dispute fee. If a Supplier decides to raise a Dispute, a non-refundable fee equal to 10% of the value of the disputed invoice or amount, subject to a minimum charge of £5.
Bank transfer investigation fee. Please note that if there is a delay in payment from the banking institution, a formal investigation can be initiated with the bank to determine transaction issues. There is a £25 fee that is issued which must be applied by the customer in order to initiate this process.
Chargeback or Request for Information (“RFI”) fee. A chargeback is a disputed card transaction filed by a Buyer with their card issuer when they dispute a payment or when their card is being used without their authorisation.
An RFI is a Request for Information the bank raises asking us for additional information regarding a particular transaction, which may be in dispute or unauthorised. The Buyer’s bank charges us a fee in both of these instances and as a result, we pass these fees to Suppliers whose Buyer filed a chargeback or RFI with their bank for a particular Workstream/payment.
Our fee per chargeback is £15.00 and we will make reasonable effort to respond to RFIs with proof of the Transaction and any required information but cannot guarantee that the case will be settled in favour of the Supplier.
In case of chargebacks, if the Buyer’s card company decides in the Supplier’s favour, the Supplier will be refunded the money to their InventoryBase account. If the decision is in favour of the Buyer, the transaction will be cancelled, the Buyer will receive a full refund, and the fee amount will be deducted from the Supplier’s InventoryBase account.
Fast Track Fee – Once your Supplier application is submitted and/or your Account/ID documents uploaded, you have the option of paying a fee of £10 in order to have your application and documents reviewed within 24 hours (1 working day). The fast track fee will provide you the fast track service for as long as such service is offered through InventoryBase.
If you require a transaction through InventoryBase which involves a currency conversion, it will be completed at a foreign exchange rate determined by an official institution, which is adjusted on a regular base. Exchange rates fluctuations are not under our control.
A Currency Conversion Fee of 2.5% will be applied every time a currency conversion is performed. When a currency conversion is available, you will be shown the exchange rate that will be applied to the transaction before you proceed with authorising the payment transaction. By accepting this transaction, you also agree to the exchange rate currency conversion terms.

You agree to comply with all applicable requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (GDPR) and any national implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation, as amended or updated from time to time, in the UK, including the Data Protection Act 2018 (together the Data Protection Legislation).
Processing data on your behalf. If we process any personal data on your behalf when performing our obligations under these terms, you are the data controller and we are the data processor for the purposes of the Data Protection Legislation (where personal data, data controller and data processor have the meanings as defined in the Data Protection Legislation).
Transferring data outside of the EEA. Personal data you provide us may be transferred or stored outside the EEA in order to provide InventoryBase and allow us to fulfil our other obligations under these terms.
You are responsible for obtaining consent. Without prejudice to the generality of the above data protection provisions, you will ensure that you have all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of the personal data you provide to us for the duration and purposes of the subscription and InventoryBase account so that we may lawfully use, process and transfer the personal data in accordance with these terms on your behalf.
Our processing of information. Without prejudice to the generality of the above data protection provisions, we shall, in relation to any personal data processed in connection with the performance by us of our obligations under these terms:
- process that personal data only on your written instructions unless we are required by the laws of any member of the European Union or by the laws of the European Union or by the laws of England and Wales applicable to the us to process personal data (“Applicable Laws”). Where we are relying on laws of a member of the European Union or European Union law as the basis for processing personal data, we shall promptly notify you of this before performing the processing required by the Applicable Laws unless those Applicable Laws prohibit us from so notifying you;
- not transfer any personal data outside of the European Economic Area and the United Kingdom unless the following conditions are fulfilled:
- you or we have provided appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer;
- the data subject has enforceable rights and effective legal remedies;
- we comply with our obligations under the Data Protection Legislation by providing an adequate level of protection to any personal data that is transferred; and
- we comply with reasonable instructions notified to us in advance by you with respect to the processing of the personal data;
Technical and organisational measures. Each party shall ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures, reviewed and approved by the other party, to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data, appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures (those measures may include, where appropriate, pseudonymising and encrypting personal data, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of its systems and services, ensuring that availability of and access to personal data can be restored in a timely manner after an incident, and regularly assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organisational measures adopted by it).
You agree we may appoint third party processors. You consent to us appointing Stripe Inc. (and their subsidiaries or affiliates) as third-party processors of personal data under this agreement. We confirm that we (or our processors) have entered or (as the case may be) will enter with the third-party processor into a written agreement incorporating terms which are substantially similar to these data protection provisions. As between you and us, we shall remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party processor we appoint.
16. Other important terms
Varying these terms. We reserve the right to vary these terms at any time by giving notice to you.
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
You may not transfer your rights to someone else. You may not transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person.
Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
If a court finds part of this contract unlawful, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide you with a subscription, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. Any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
