New Year – New Payment Nightmares?
Some of the commentators say construction is still on the up, some say the bubble has burst. Whichever view you subscribe to, we know that many Specialist Contractors are still experiencing Payment Nightmares!
- “Underpayment without reason”
- “Pay when paid and if certified”
- “Spurious contra charges with no prior notice and no detail”
- “Unpaid applications in excess of 6 months”
- “Contractors ignore you, even after repeated threats of legal action”
- “Even large contractors who used to pay on time hold onto payments”
- “Contractors use you to bankroll the contract”
- “They screw you to maintain their margins”
- “Contractors that are in adversarial mode from day one!”
- “CIS deducted incorrectly and not paid back”
I’m sick and tired of seeing good hard working Specialist Contractors like you suffering at the hands of the non-paying, arrogant, bully boy Contractors!
