You MUST get the process right in order to protect your entitlement

A recent Supreme Court case in NSW (Chase Oyster Bar (Chase) v Hamo Industries (Hamo) [2010] NSWCA 1) has made it clear that parties to an adjudication must get the payment process right if they are to take advantage of the protection that Security of Payments Acts in Australia offer contractors and subcontractors.  The Courts can now overturn an adjudication decision if the timings for payment claims, payment schedules, notices, applications and responses are not correct. 

Re-starting the process is costly, time-consuming and uncertain.  It always happens at the worst possible time, when you need it most.  Thepowertool can help you to manage your payment process and make sure you do not miss your timings.
