PAYMENT TERMS, DEPOSITS, CANCELLATION INFORMATION
If we do however have to cancel a course due to circumstances beyond our control we will refund 100% of your course fee to you.
If you cancel a self paced course: Because we schedule all of our courses to run as soon as we receive the first booking there is a cost involved and should you cancel your attendance of a course at short notice, to which you may be the only participant, we are unlikely to be able to schedule an alternative course and we will advise to take the course as distance learning.
We know that things happen and provided we have other participants booked on your course we are happy to give you a raincheck for a later date (up to a maximum period of 6 months) if you notify us within 2 working days of the start of the course, or if the circumstances involve personal injury or illness to either yourself or a near relative. A change in your work circumstances does not qualify for a raincheck.
- If a student requests a postponement of their online course to a later date within 5 working days of acknowledging acceptance of the letter of offer, it may be granted whenever possible - but it is at the discretion of the CEO.
- If the student decides that they wish to cancel the course after paying for the course and enrolling, without access to any online course material, an administration fee of $375 [ GST ex] will be deducted from their enrolment fee for Nationally Recognised Training courses. CPD courses an administration fee of $105 will be incurred (GST ex).
- If a student is taking an online course and decides that he/she does not wish to proceed with the course after access to all the course material has been provided, BIA will charge the student a 50% cancellation and administration fee. This means that BIA will refund the student 50% of the fees paid.
- If a student fails to notify BIA of the Cancellation Request within 7 calendar days of the Agreement Date, the student will be liable to pay the Course fee to BIA in full.

The Course Fee does not cover postage to BIA, nor any materials that are not listed as Course Materials for the Course. The course fee does not cover postage to overseas countries [outside Australia]. Textbooks are not included in the course fee. BIA will advise the student about the cost of overseas postage based on student requirements. BIA notes that, depending on the particular course, the student may need to provide their equipment in addition to the Course Materials at their cost. Subject to the successful completion of all assignments and the Course Fee paid in full, BIA will issue the student with the appropriate certification for the course.
BIA reserves the right to withhold access to Course Materials, marking of assessments and any certification of the students' results if the student fails to pay any part of the Course Fee, including resubmission fees and extension fees, as and when it becomes payable. If the student is paying the course fee by instalments, the student must pay all such instalments on or before the due date as late fees and collection costs may apply.
The Course Materials which BIA provides to the student shall become the students’ property on payment of the full course fee. However, the Course Materials content, including copyright and all other such intellectual property rights contained therein, remain the property of BIA or a nominated third party. The student may not reproduce any part of the Course Materials, in any form, without the prior written consent of BIA.
The enrolment durations are provided under “Introduction”, herein. If the student does not complete the Course within the given timeframe, the Course will be immediately cancelled without refund. If the student wishes to continue with the Course after the expiry date, an additional fee of $400 will be charged and an extension of three (3) months will be granted or monthly by fee arrangement. Extensions are subject to availability of assessors and BIA retains the right to refuse an extension at its absolute discretion. Students must consider the marking time turnaround of approximately 10 working days when extensions are provided.
If the Course requires the student to partake in any external examinations, the student is responsible for establishing the students own eligibility and making arrangements to attend and pay for the examination.
The student understands that if they wish to take advantage of a chosen payment plan, the student MUST register with the payment provider to enable the instalment payments to take place, either through credit card instalments or by EFT and the student is responsible for the transaction fees incurred by the payment provider.
If the student does not wish to pay by credit card, the student will need to make an EFT payment for the full amount of the course either before access to the course commences or discuss alternative options with an authorised BIA Representative.
It is essential that once enrolled students submit the required DDR information to the payment provider so that the instalment payments are up to date. If students are late supplying their financial details, two payments may be taken out in the second month due to the first instalment being missed. Late fees may apply.
As part of enrolment in the course, students qualify 12 months student members of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB). Students are advised that ICB may communicate with the students either electronically or by mail to provide information on their services.
