Proactively manage risk and standardize processes for handling prompt payment by using Onware’s Contract Administration software
To address cash flow issues experienced in the construction industry, provinces across Canada are legislating prompt payment. This includes:
- Enforcement of a schedule for progress payments on construction contracts. In addition, limit on alternative payment schedules.
- Mandatory payments within specified days from delivery of an invoice, unless there are disputes.
- Disputed amounts require non-payment notice. However, payment is required to undisputed amounts.
- Disputes will be through special adjudicators for quick resolution
For a summary of prompt payment initiatives across Canada, see posts from Canadian business law firms, Osler and Miller Thomson.
