Have your say on the Security of Payment Discussion Paper

Posted by LNA Master Landscapers Association on 20 January 2016

Security of payment laws are designed to ensure that a person can receive payment under a construction contract for:

  • carrying out construction work; or
  • providing any goods and services related to that work.

Fair Trading has released a Discussion Paper to guide discussion about whether the current laws are working as they should and outline potential options for improving them. The paper covers topics including:

  • progress payments
  • how payment claims are made
  • payment due dates and schedules
  • suspension of work when claims are not paid
  • retention monies
  • adjudication of disputes
  • other issues concerning security of payment laws.
