Occasionally you will be charged a 'Top-up Account Charge' which is a prepayment to cover charges for inbound calls that exceed your subscription's included allowance, SMS messages, and outbound calls. This amount is charged when you upgrade from a Free Trial and every time your balance reaches £0.00. The charge is for the amount required to restore your balance to £20.00 + VAT.
