The NSW Government has introduced further reforms to Security of Payment laws in the Building and Construction Security of Payment Act that will ensure prompter payments of subcontractors in the construction industry. The changes include a reduction of the time a head contractor has to pay a subcontractor from 30 to 20 business days, increased enforcement powers for Fair Trading and a payment structure that will allow sub-contractors to make a claim at least once per month for completed work.
