Terms of trade
General terms and conditions
These general terms and conditions apply
from 31 October 2022.
These general terms and conditions apply to credit granted to the business customer ("Customer") by Nordiska Kreditmarknadsaktiebolaget (publ), org.nr. 556760-6032, ("Nordiska" and "Creditor") after an approved application.
These General Terms and Conditions apply to and form an integral part of the credit agreement between the Customer and the Creditor (the "Credit Agreement"), which sets out the Customer's right to dispose of the amount of credit granted (the "Credit"). The Credit Agreement and these General Terms and Conditions are concluded by the acceptance, on behalf of the Customer, of the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement and by the approval of the Customer's credit application by the Creditor. The Credit Agreement and these General Terms and Conditions set out all the terms and conditions of the Credit. Qred, a branch of Qred AB, Sweden, CVR number 38972294 ("Qred") handles all matters and communications relating to the Credit on behalf of Nordiska until Nordiska notifies otherwise.
3. Company information
Nordiska is a credit market company whose operations are supervised by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen). The company provides, among other things, commercial loans.
4. Credit application
Credit application is done via the Internet on Qred's website, www.qred.com. Any credit commitment is communicated to the Customer electronically. It is a condition for the granting of credit that the Customer is a Danish legal person and that the Customer is represented by the authorised signatory or signatories. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the information they provide is correct and that any power of attorney is issued if required. The authorised signatory or signatories for the Customer and Guarantors must identify themselves electronically such as MitID or by such other means as the Creditor may require.
5. Credit assessment
Credit approval is based on an individual credit assessment and is decided unilaterally by Nordiska. Credit is only granted if, in the opinion of the Creditor, the Customer has the financial means to implement the Credit Agreement. Nordiska reserves the right to reject an application or propose and grant a lower credit than the amount applied for by the Customer.
6. Term of the credit agreement
The Credit Agreement shall be effective from the time the Credit is disbursed until the full amount is due for payment. Due dates for payment of the Credit are set out in "My Qred" on the Qred website. Granted Credit implies the Customer's right to borrow a credit amount specified in the Credit Agreement, which will be paid by Nordiska to a Danish bank account specified by the Customer in the Credit Agreement. Disbursement takes place on weekdays from 9.00-17.00. Nordiska may grant the Customer a new credit after a new application and a separate credit assessment.
The credit must be repaid in accordance with the term specified in the Credit Agreement. The Customer shall repay the Credit monthly in the amounts specified in the Credit Agreement. Invoiced amounts must be received by the Creditor no later than the due date by payment into a bank or giro account specified by the Creditor. Late payment of an instalment constitutes a material breach of the Credit Agreement and entitles the Creditor to demand immediate repayment of the Credit and may affect the possibility of being approved for Credit with Nordiska in the future. Due date(s), amount(s) and the Creditor's bank or giro account are shown, among other things, on "My Qred" on Qred's website.
8. Monthly fee
The Customer shall pay to the Vendor a fixed monthly fee as set out in the Credit Agreement. The monthly fee shall be fixed from the time the Credit is disbursed until the full amount has been repaid, subject to any changes as set out in point 11 below. The monthly fee shall be payable throughout the term of the Credit Agreement and until the Credit has been repaid in full.
9. Fees and interest
If the Customer fails to make timely payment of instalments, interest or monthly fees, etc., Nordiska will charge fees, including reminder fees and collection fees, and Nordiska will charge the default interest stipulated in the Credit Agreement. In the event of default, the Customer is obliged to pay costs associated with the recovery of the Creditors' claim, including collection costs, legal fees, etc.
10. Settlement and past debts
The creditor is entitled to settle all outstanding monthly fees, as well as other costs, charges and default interest, before payment of the principal. If Customer has unpaid fees and/or other outstanding balances from previous credit with Vendor, Vendor shall be entitled to make payment of such outstanding balances against Customer's new Credit granted, at the time the new Credit Agreement becomes effective.
11. Unforeseen costs
If the Creditor's business should be affected by unforeseeable costs due to legislative decisions, legislation, credit policy measures, changing borrowing costs or other circumstances beyond the Creditor's control or which the Creditor could not reasonably foresee at the time the Credit Agreement was concluded, the Creditor shall have the right to immediately change the monthly fees. Any such change in monthly fees shall be communicated to the Customer via email and on "My Qred" on the Creditor's website at least two (2) months before the change takes effect.
12. Repayment plan
The customer has the right to receive, on request and free of charge during the term of the Credit Agreement, a payment schedule indicating the payment deadlines for instalments, fees, etc. This information can also be found on "My Qred" on the Qred website.
13. Invoicing and payment
The creditor sends a monthly invoice to the Customer by e-mail. Invoices are sent at least eight (8) days before the due date. The invoices contain, among other things, information on the credit amount, monthly fees and the total amount due for the current month. Payment must be made in time for payment to be received in the bank or giro account designated by the Vendor by the due date indicated on the invoice.
The Customer is obliged to pay the monthly fee and, if applicable, default interest, charges and any other costs and fees in connection with the Credit and the Credit Agreement in Danish kroner (DKK). This also applies to early repayment of loans as referred to in point 17.

26. Privacy and handling of personal data
27. Money laundering
Nordiska is a credit market company whose operations are supervised by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen). As a credit market company, Nordiska is obliged to comply with Swedish legislation on preventive measures against money laundering and terrorist financing. According to the legislation, Nordiska is obliged to obtain customer due diligence in order to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. Therefore, both new and existing customers will experience that Kreditor asks a number of questions that shed light on the company's business as well as the customer's identity. As a customer, you may find that the creditor requires additional documentation that clarifies the origin of the money or the purpose of the loan.
By entering into the Credit Agreement, the Customer undertakes to provide the information requested by the Vendor via Qred in order to comply with the requirements of the applicable legislation. The Creditor has the right to cancel the agreement or refuse credit to the Customer if verification or documentation of the information cannot be obtained.
