Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Can you confirm whether or not their terms do say you must use the product value rather than refund please?
yes it does
Sadly its bad news I am afraid. As a business you have far lesser rights than a regular customer. If you were a consumer then you may have protection under the Unfair Contract Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations. This does not apply to a business
A business is expected to read all the terms, no matter how unfair they may seem
You can try and take action though as it would be inexpensive and a small claim
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
