  6. 6. thepower tool .com.au When “payment really matters” New subcontract provisions 1) it is acknowledged by the parties that the process for payment under the head contract requires the head contractor to amalgamate the payment claims of trade contractors and suppliers of related goods and services for processing and submission to the Principal for evaluation and payment. Trade contractors and suppliers of related goods and services must commit to serving payment claims on the managing contractor in sufficient time to effect the head contract payment process. The trade contractor shall submit a payment claim within 5 business days of the reference date for the current claim period. If the trade contractor does not serve a payment claim on the managing contractor by the due date for service of a payment claim, or does not make a request for an extension of time, in writing, it is deemed that the trade contractor does not require a progress payment for the period. 2) The managing contractor shall submit a payment claim within 7 business days of the head contract reference date for the current claim period. 3) Variations to be included for payment in a payment claim must be submitted for agreement at least 10 business days before the reference date of the payment claim. Variations that have not been submitted for agreement shall be deemed not to be variations agreed between the parties for the purposes of the Act. Variations not agreed shall be carried forward for agreement before the following payment claim. © These diagrams and the process it represents are the copyright of John Lowry and Lowry Consulting Pty Ltd.
