UK Construction Act overview: take control of subcontractor payments

The payment provisions in the UK Construction Act have been designed to impose structure, clear timelines and defined areas of responsibility into what is one of the most contentious parts of the contractor – subcontractor relationship. The Act covers the likes of contractor-subcontractor payment, preventing ‘paid when paid’ mentality, along with the timely Pay Less Notice.
