Invoicing may be an alternative payment method if your company has an invoicing agreement with Scandic (see below).

In case the conference is pre-paid at the time of booking, the prepayment is deducted from the final bill and will be included in the calculation of cancellation fees as stated below. If the booking has been pre-paid and cancellations or reductions have been made in line within the cancellation timelines given, Scandic will refund the same credit card that has been used to pay for the booking. From the moment we authorize the refund, your bank still needs to process it. The amount of time it takes to process the refund differs between banks and payment methods.
To be eligible for invoicing your company needs to hold a valid invoicing agreement with Scandic. If a valid invoicing agreement cannot be found, The Hotel will contact you to agree on another payment method. In case a valid invoicing agreement cannot be found, or you cannot be reached for settling via a different payment method, The Hotel reserves the right to cancel the booking.
In case of invoicing, the amount is due for payment 10 days from the date of invoice. As the booker of the conference you are responsible for all costs in connection therewith. An invoicing fee will be charged. Late payments will be subject to 1,5 % interests per current month plus an administration fee.
