We will not be required to issue any refunds or Chargebacks to you if we do not receive the necessary funds from the relevant merchant.

5.4. Refunds, Chargebacks credited to your Corporate Card made in error. If any refund, Chargeback or any other amount has been credited to the Corporate Card in error (for example if a refund is issued more than once for the same transaction, if it is higher than the transaction value or if you have not requested refund at all), we will be entitled to deduct such amount from the Corporate Card. You agree to any such deductions being made by us.
5.5. You must assist us in relation to any refunds and Chargebacks. If you make a request for a refund or Chargeback in respect of a disputed transaction, you will need to cooperate with us fully and provide all information and documentation that may be necessary to support the refund and chargeback process.

7.3. You may request to vary the aggregate spending limit and single spending limit. You may request to vary the aggregate spending limit of the Organisation and/or single spending limit of any Corporate Charge Card through the Platform Provider. We may agree to such request for variation if (a) you have provided sufficient funds as Collateral for the Organisation; and (b) you have complied with all your obligations under these Terms.
7.4. Transactions exceeding spending limits or transaction limits. If a business payment results in you exceeding the spending limits or transaction limits, you will be construed as having made a request for overlimit processing. If we decide, in our sole discretion, to process such business payment notwithstanding Clause 7.1 of this Part B, all amounts exceeding the spending limits or transaction limits are repayable immediately and you shall transfer an amount which equals to the shortfall to a bank account nominated by us on demand. We may choose to restrict or suspend the use of any Corporate Charge Cards until such time as you repay the shortfall.
7.5. The Collateral amount. As a condition for the use of any Corporate Charge Card, you agree and undertake to ensure that we have received such amount of funds as financial support to assure us that you will pay for all amounts owed by you to us under these Terms, including but not limited to (a) all amounts authorised under all Corporate Charge Cards issued under the Organisation Account; (b) all outstanding fees; and (c) any other amounts owed to us under these Terms (Collateral).

7.7. All rights, interest and title to the Collateral belong to us. Upon receipt of the Collateral in our bank account in cleared funds, you authorise and agree that all rights, title and interest in and to any Collateral shall be irrevocably transferred to, and vest in, us free and clear of any liens, claims, charges or encumbrances or any other interest that you or any third party may have in the Collateral. We may deduct the Collateral and utilise the deducted amount towards repayment of any amount owed by you to us under these Terms (whether such amount is present, future, actual or contingent or potential, liquidated or unliquidated and irrespective of the currency of their denomination).
7.8. The Collateral is not a debt, is not held on trust, and does not create any security interest. The Collateral does not represent a debt owed by us to you, nor is it an amount held on trust by us for you. The provision of the Collateral does not create any mortgage, charge, lien, pledge, encumbrance or other security interest in favour of any person.
7.9. Monthly transaction statement. At the beginning of each month, we will make available to you a transaction statement which sets out the total amount authorised by us under the Corporate Charge Card for the preceding month (Monthly Transaction Statement). You may access such Monthly Transaction Statement through the Platform.

7.13. No Cash Withdrawal. You may not use the Corporate Charge Card to make cash withdrawals at any ATM or any cash withdrawal service provider.
8.1. We will return any Net Balance upon your request.

For the avoidance of doubt, no fee will be charged if such a request is made following termination of these Terms for any reason.
8.2. Any return of funds is subject to satisfactory due diligence checks. We are not required to return the Net Balance to you if (a) the result of due diligence checks is unsatisfactory, (b) we are prohibited by an order or directive of a regulatory body or (c) doing so might otherwise put us in breach of any applicable laws.
8.3. Suspension of Corporate Card for lack of funds. In the event such return of funds result in insufficient Corporate Prepaid/Debit Card balance or insufficient Collateral, we may suspend your ability to use the Corporate Prepaid/Debit Card or Corporate Charge Card, as applicable.
