Under the BIF Act, is every invoice I receive now a payment claim? Subcontractor FAQ


As a subbie or tradie, under the BIF Act, is every invoice I receive now a payment claim?

Every invoice you receive for construction work or related goods and services, could be a payment claim under the BIF Act.To be a payment claim, the invoice needs to:

  • Be sent on or after a reference date (the date from which you are entitled to send a payment claim under your contract or the last day of the month);

  • Be the only payment claim sent for the reference date;

  • Identify the construction work or related goods and services;

  • State the claimed amount; and

  • Request payment (stating “invoice” is enough to fulfil this).

For any building and construction matters needing legal help and advice for you and your business, call us on 07 3128 0120 or email us at subcontractors@arbuildinglaw.com.au.
