Commissions will be recognised for orders placed during the period of validity of this agreement and for which Natura Srl has received payment from consumers.
Commissions will not be recognised in relation to products in relation to which the consumer has exercised the right of withdrawal within the first 10 days from the receipt of the order, or whose order lines are cancelled following a request by the customer or due to the unavailability of the product itself.

Tax treatment of commissions
Commissions represent an occasional service between Natura Srl and the affiliate. If the party is tax resident in Italy, the service is subject to withholding tax, which shall be shown on the invoice.
Commissions are understood to be gross of VAT and withholding tax only and net of any REVENUE (INPS, INNERCASSA, etc.), which shall be borne exclusively by the Affiliate.
For amounts equal to/exceeding € 77.47, as provided for by the regulations in force, a € 2.00 revenue stamp must be applied to the receipts/invoices of the parties concerned by the regulations. In this case, the amount shall be debited by deducting it from the calculation of subsequent fees.
Price of products
The selling price of Natura Srl’s products is determined autonomously by Natura Srl according to its own pricing policies.
Return of Products and Order Cancellation
If an item is returned by the customer at a time subsequent to its receipt, the commission that had been recognised for that product may be deducted from the next payment or in the case of non-existence of a subsequent payment, the amount will be invoiced to the affiliate.
