If building and construction work was performed in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania or Australian Capital Territory, we help industry participants understand and use security of payment legislation. Those governments have also appointed Adjudicate Today to train and nominate adjudicators to determine payment disputes. In Queensland*, Adjudicate Today is an agent for adjudicators.
All States and Territories in Australia have security of payment Acts. These Acts were developed to counter the practice of some principals and contractors in delaying payments, or unduly reducing the value of payments, while otherwise using cash that is owed to their subcontractors and suppliers.
The Acts provide a mechanism for industry participants to be quickly paid money that is owed. These rights are outlined in our General Summary "About Security of Payment and Adjudication".
Our responsibility is to help all parties comply with the procedures and time frames of the relevant Act and work through the adjudication process. Our services are provided quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.
We do not charge an adjudication application fee or an administration fee. We offer low fixed fees for small value disputes. Click here for detailed fee information.
With support from industry participants, we are Australia's largest authorised nominating authority (ANA) with more matters referred to us than received by all other ANAs combined.
This website provides the necessary tools to understand and apply the process of adjudication to your business.
Please commence by clicking on the State or Territory button (above) in which the work was performed.
If you have problems, our courteous and professional staff provide free, no obligation help on using the Acts in your individual circumstances. Ring 1300760297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Information on this website is generally not applicable in Queensland where the former government introduced in 2014 many unfortunate amendments which impact the adjudication process.
