National Specialist Contractors Council starts campaign with seminar on how to get paid on time

The National Specialist Contractors Council has officially launched its Fair Payment Campaign in Scotland.

More than 50 specialist contractors attended a half day launch seminar, hosted by Scottish law firm Anderson Strathern in Edinburgh.

The seminar showed how to use the aims of the Fair Payment campaign to improve the chances of getting paid on time.

It covered key aims such as certainty of payment, getting paid within 30 days, offering retention bonds instead of cash retentions, using suspension and adjudication and obtaining credit insurance.

The National Specialist Contractors Council also launched a Scottish edition of the Specialist Contractor’s Toolkit, which covers variations in Scottish law.
