Liquidated Damages Liquidated damages are an agreedupon amount of money that parties to a contract promise to pay if one of them breaches the contract
Liquidated Damages o o The amount of liquidated damages must be roughly equal to the amount that the party who is owed the damages will lose due to the breach of contract, and The damages must be uncertain enough that the liquidated damages clause saves both parties substantial time and money in figuring out the actual damages amount.
Liquidated Damages Clause o Should the delivery of the goods be delayed against the dates stipulated hereby, the Seller pays the Buyer liquidated damages at the rate of 0, 5% of the value of the goods overdue in delivery for every full calendar week of delay for the first four weeks, and at the rate of 1% for every following calendar week of delay. The total amount of liquidated damages should not exceed 5% of the value of the goods delayed in delivery. When calculating the damages, the number of days making up of four or more days will be considered as a full calendar week. If the delay in delivery exceeds 6 months, the Buyer has the right to cancel the non-fulfilled part of the Contract without any compensation of the Seller's expenses or losses sustained in cancellation. In this case the Seller shall pay to the Buyer 5% penalty for delay in delivery and shall return back immediately all the amount paid under the present Contract. The rate of agreed and liquidated damages is not subject to alteration by Arbitration. The Seller is to pay it immediately at the first Buyer's request.
