Terms and Conditions

All orders for books, CD-ROMs and other publications (‘Goods’) placed with LCP (Language Centre Publications Limited) will be accepted by LCP subject to these terms and conditions until further notice.


The price (exclusive of VAT) for the Goods (‘the Price’) shall be the quoted price of the Seller and payment of the Price shall be made by the Buyer within 30 days of the date of the invoice for the Goods. Prices on this website are quoted exclusive of VAT where applicable. Postage and packing charges are also quoted exclusive of VAT.

If the Price is not paid by the due date, interest shall accrue both before and after judgement on the unpaid portion of the Price at the rate of 4 per cent above the Bank of England base rate.

Price Discounts

Where online price discounts are offered these apply to firm orders only.  Customers may have more than one discount per basket but only one discount per item/product. All discounts exclude VAT and postage and packing.

This excludes global discounts (those that apply to all products on www.LCP.co.uk) which are available at the same time as individual product/item discounts. However, where global discounts apply (such as 10% off all online orders over £100) to goods which are already themselves discounted, the global discount applies to the discounted price paid and not the full price of the item.

In addition, where discounts are available for orders over a certain amount, this includes the cost of the Goods only and does not include VAT or postage.

Discounts on this website are specific to www.LCP.co.uk  A separate discount structure operates for our sister website www.Karascope.com
