Terms and Conditions

The terms and conditions apply to all business transactions carried out by BOSSREG, hereinafter referred to as the 'Company'.

The person applying for the rights to display a vehicle registration mark from the Company and/or the recipient of the registration mark is hereinafter referred to as the 'Purchaser'.

Your statutory rights are not affected.

  1. It is the sole responsibility of the Purchaser to ensure that all the correct details are entered onto Company Internet forms and submitted or given to the Company's representative at the time of purchase. The Company's representative shall use standard phonetics to refer to combinations requested by the Purchaser.
  2. Under the Distance Selling Regulations the Company must notify you that the service we provide begins as soon as the registration mark is reserved on your behalf, subsequently there is no 'cooling off period', the transaction cannot be reversed and no refund can be given.
  3. In no circumstances shall the Company be made responsible for any failed transfers or disappointments. In such cases any payment made shall be refunded in full, provided that the failure is through no fault of the Purchaser (Please note that Age Restrictions apply to most registration numbers and it is the sole responsibility of the Purchaser to ensure that any registration number is suitable for assignment to their vehicle, NO refunds or exchanges are possible if this not the case) . The Company's liability is strictly limited to a full refund only and no claims for damages; interest on monies paid or any other expenses shall be entertained.
  4. In the event that the Company is unable to submit the necessary paperwork to the Vehicle Registration Office within 12 weeks from receipt of all Purchaser documents, and provided that the Purchaser is not responsible for the failure, the Company will refund payment in full.
  5. The Purchaser agrees to send the recipient vehicle documents as requested by the Company within 3 weeks, unless otherwise arranged and documented within our system. In the event that the recipient vehicle is not made available, the Company may elect to place the registration onto retention and in doing so any costs shall be borne by the Purchaser.
  6. Retention Certificates or Certificates of Entitlement displaying the 'grantee/purchaser' as BOSSREG or the Purchaser shall be released upon receiving a signed authority to do so from the Purchaser.
