Term of Membership
Your initial ABN membership period commences on the day you join and expires 12 months from the end of the calendar month in which you join. (For example, if you joined on 10 January 2014, your initial membership period would expire on 31 January 2015.) At the end of your initial 12 months, your membership then continues on a month-by-month basis.
Cancellation of Membership by an ABN Member
An ABN membership cannot be terminated within the first 12 months. Should you wish to cease your ABN membership after this time, you can do so by submitting an ABN Membership Cancellation form. This form must be submitted to us by the 21st day of the month in order for next month’s direct debit to not take place. For example, if you submit an ABN Membership Cancellation form on 16 May, your membership will cease on 31 May and no further direct debits will be taken. If, however, you submit an ABN Membership Cancellation form on 26 May, your membership will cease on 30 June and a final direct debit will be taken in June.
Cancellation of Membership by ABN
ABN reserves the right to cancel your membership at any time for reasons including, but not limited to, failure to pay your membership fees; unlawful distribution of our intellectual property; or posting content to our Discussion Forum that is in violation of any applicable law or regulation (such as copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights), is in violation of privacy rules or personal rights of others or is defamatory, obscene, threatening, abusive or hateful.
Your Direct Debit Authority, once completed and submitted, acts as a Tax Invoice in the amount of $462 GST-inclusive in respect to your initial 12 month membership. Following this initial 12 month period, if you have chosen to pay your membership by monthly direct debit, your ongoing membership of $38.50 GST-inclusive per month becomes that of a progressive supply. No further Tax Invoices will be issued as each progressive supply is for an amount less than the Tax Invoice threshold of $82.50. Conversely, if you have chosen to pay your membership by annual direct debit, a Tax Invoice will be emailed to you the month before the direct debit is scheduled to be processed.
