We usually respond to every email within 10 minutes of receiving it. Most of your queries will be answered within minutes, or within the same, or one, working day.
You can view, check and print all our service invoices at any time 24/7 from your Account Control Panel. Invoices for orders placed online are emailed to your account registered email address.
Because we provide you with up to 31 days credit for most services and bill you in arrears, all our invoices are due for payment immediately on issue and are automatically billed from your credit or debit card (our Contract Agreement requires you to keep a valid credit or debit card on the account at all times).
As per our Contract Terms and Conditions and in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 as Amended in August 2002 (Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 (SI 2002 No 1674)), late payments shall attract interest (8% over base rate) and a fixed compensation sum will be charged per each invoice paid late. The Law states where an unpaid invoice amount is above £0 and below £1,000, the fixed compensation sum is £40.00. This means that even if the outstanding invoice is for £1.00, the fixed late payment compensation charge will still be £40.00. The fixed penalty sum is higher for invoices above £1,000. Fixed Late Payment Compensation Sum covers our time and reasonable debt recovery costs when dealing with unpaid invoices.
Full details of the Late Payment Legislation and the table quoting each applicable fixed penalty sum are available on the official UK Government Legislation home page.

The procedure is simple. We'll send you a DQ Listing Form by email which you just need to complete and return to us.

Yes, our service is Tier 1 rated (same as BT). We do not utilise VoIP at all which means there is no compression used on any numbers we provide, so the call quality will be excellent. Most other 08 providers utilise inferior quality VoIP to carry your calls.
Although most consumers calling from landlines will have free all-inclusive calls to 0845/0870 numbers, if you deal with consumers, when advertising 084/087 numbers you are required to state the cost of call. The recommended form of wording is as follows: For 0845, 0844, 0870: "Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge". For 0871: "Calls cost 13p per minute plus your phone company's access charge". For full details please refer to recently issued guidance.
