Australian schools may send a school cheque made payable to Education Services Australia Ltd.
New Zealand and international schools need to obtain a bank draft in Australian dollars from the school's local bank.
As SCIS subscriptions are for a calendar year a note on the invoice states "If payment in Australian dollars is not received by 31 December access will be disabled".
There is a grace period at the beginning of the year when you will have access to SCIS until 13 February. If your payment has not been received by 13 February you will not be able to access SCIS. As soon as payments are received they are processed promptly to minimise time without access.
Schools will be invoiced for any shortfall in payments.
All bank fees are the responsibility of the customer.
2015 SCIS subscriptions
Schools who pay their SCIS subscriptions on an annual basis will receive their invoice for SCIS early in Term 4. Payment is due by the end of 2014 to ensure continuous access. Government school systems, except Victoria and Tasmania, and a number of Catholic Dioceses coordinate access to SCIS on behalf of all their schools.
