Use of Master Builders' Holding Account during Christmas break

Published: 11 October 2017

Master Builders’ holding account won’t be operational from Wednesday, 20 December 2017 until Tuesday, 2 January 2018. No deposits or fund releases will be processed during this time.

The holding account is a security facility we offer to Master Builders’ members and their customers. We enable funds to be deposited into the account until work has either been completed or a dispute is resolved. Money can only be released from the account on agreement by both parties. Master Builders offers the account as an impartial third party.

If you need to use the holding account before the Christmas shutdown, we must receive your transaction request before 9am on Tuesday, 19 December 2017.
