Contractors beware!

Don't let time bars ruin your bottom line

There are clauses lurking in virtually every civil and construction contract that send contractors broke.

So much so, that 26% of all insolvencies around Australia annually are civil and construction contractor related.

A major cause – if not the major cause – of insolvency in the civil and construction industry is failure to lodge notification and claim forms properly and on time.

The problem

At Time Unbarred, we understand that many civil and construction contractors are missing their time bars due to:

The complexity and wordiness of the contract
Lack of time
Lack of resources
Lack of confidence to explain the delay in the required format and detail
Fear of getting it wrong, appearing unprofessional, unkowledgeable etc.

Never miss a time bar again with our innovative solution!
