Don't forget to check your subbies are licensed

Posted by Fair Trading NSW on 18 June 2018
The Home Building Act 1989 (the Act) provides that a person who holds a contractor licence, can only subcontract residential building work to another person who holds a valid contractor licence appropriate for the work being done.

An individual who breaches this requirement can be fined up to $22,000, and a corporation can be fined up to $110,000 for such a breach. An individual who is convicted of committing a second or subsequent breach of this nature, can be fined up to $55,000 or imprisoned for up to 12 months, or both.
