A business that offers courses cannot:

  • collect payment or a deposit to be paid before the first course is delivered;
  • collect payment in one instalment. The total amount of the invoice must be paid in at least 2 approximately equal instalments. The instalments must be claimed at regular intervals, for example, at the start and midway point of your course.

Exceptions: payment in one instalment

The business can demand payment in one instalment in either of 2 situations:

  • the total value of the course is $100 or less (including taxes);
  • the course is given over 3 days or fewer, regardless of its total value.
