Course outline

Chapter 3 of the BIF Act is set to commence on 17 December 2018 and applies to all projects from $0 and up, residential and commercial projects, civil works and building projects, licensed and unlicensed building work.

It will apply even if you are not in dispute and applies to builders, subcontractors, suppliers, consultants and principals/owners.

There are mandatory obligations with hefty fines and disciplinary action if you are a QBCC licence holder.  It is a complex process that will require you to change the way you run your business to protect yourself and you need to be ready for it.

The session is interactive and will focus on the practical elements of how this chapter of the BIF Act works on day to day activities and will answer questions such as:

  • Which contracts does it apply to?
  • What do I need to put in my contract to protect myself – both as a claimant and as a respondent?
  • What is required for a payment claim / what does a payment claim look like?
  • How do I respond to a payment claim?
  • If I have not been paid, what can I do?
