German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial / Payment conditions
German term or phrase:Erfüllungshalber
In a text about the the terms and conditions for exhibitors at a trade fair:
"Schecks werden nur erfüllungshalber entgegengenommen"
Does this mean they will accept payment only for services(to be) rendered and not bribes? Surely not!
Explanation: I'm not at all sure about the translation, but erfüllungshalber means that a cheque is not a "real" payment, it only gives you the right to cash in the money: "Eine Leistung erfüllungshalber liegt vor, wenn dem Gläubiger ein Gegenstand überlassen wird, aus dem er seine Befriedigung suchen soll (z.B. Abtretung einer Forderung zur Einziehung);"
Explanation: Means acceptance of the check in itself does not constitute formal payment. If the check does not clear (eg. insufficient funds in the account), services will be withheld.

6) Payment by Purchaser
Payment is due upon the fall of the hammer and must be made in full by 5:00 p.m. on the day of the sale. The preferred method of payment is by electronic transfer but payment can also be by cash or banker’s draft in sterling. Cheques will be accepted only by prior arrangement and supported by a letter from the purchaser’s bank stating the amount up to which such charge will be honoured. http://fp.moodyplc.f9.co.uk/auc_cond.htm
