Membership fees are paid on a mutually agreed upon date by direct debit from a bank account or credit card.

If you do not fully pay your fees on the due date, TAB will suspend your access to TAB until any outstanding balance has been paid and you have given us your updated account details if they are required.

This includes third-party accounts. If the details you give us fail, you are liable for all resulting fees. You should update your details and are obligated to complete your minimum term of payments.
Payments declined & not reconciled within 15 days will be assessed a $35 late payment fee.
7) Can TAB change your agreement?
TAB may sometimes add to, change or remove our terms and conditions. This includes changing the opening and closing hours, TAB services and facilities and membership fees. Sometimes, TAB may also close for refurbishment to improve the facilities. If this substantially reduces our ability to provide our service to you, TAB will reduce your membership fees accordingly on a pro-rata basis. The most up-to-date terms and conditions always apply. TAB will give you at least 28 days’ notice of any changes. If TAB does not fulfill our obligations to you, you may be able to cancel your membership. Unless the law states otherwise, you won’t have any other claim against us if this happens.
8. Can TAB increase your fees?
TAB reserves the right to increase your fees only after your agreement has ended. TAB will make a reasonable effort to tell you about this at least 28 days beforehand by writing to the address you last gave us (which may be an email address). TAB will consider that you have received our letter or email on the second business day after it is sent.
Where TAB have made a reasonable effort to let you know about a fee increase, you authorize us to increase any debits from your nominated account.
