8.6 Without prejudice to any other right or remedy that it may have, if the Customer fails to make any payment due to the Supplier under the Contract on the due date for payment, the Supplier may suspend all Services until payment in full has been made. The Supplier may also charge interest on such sum from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, at the annual rate of 4% above the base lending rate from time to time of Barclays Bank Plc. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, and shall be compounded quarterly until payment, whether before or after any judgment and the Customer shall pay such interest immediately on demand.
