HIA Tradepass for Contractors

Tradepass compiles all your contractor documents in the one place, making it easy to see you’re verified and ready to work.

Tradepass shows you’re verified and ready for your next job

How much time do you spend collating and managing your legal and business documentation every time you begin a new job with a builder? Register with Tradepass and we’ll help you take care of it.

What is Tradepass?

Tradepass compiles all your documents in one place so potential employers can see your credentials at a glance. 

  • Tradepass takes the hassle out of maintaining up-to-date business information and documentation
  • Upload your documents to our user-friendly site, so they can be accessed anytime, anywhere
  • You’ll be notified when information or documents such as your licence and insurance are expiring and need updating
  • You may also be included on a searchable database where builders seeking compliant workers can make contact with you.

Benefits of Tradepass

Having a HIA Tradepass means you get:

  • an industry tick of approval – builders can quickly see your commitment to safety, insurances and other business requirements – and can hire you with confidence
  • the opportunity to grow – listing on the Tradepass database means builders looking for compliant workers can find you quickly and easily
  • to show evidence you’re ready to work – when a builder wants to hire you, your documentation is verified and ready to go – no hassle, no waiting, no billable hours lost to paper-chasing
  • complete user-friendly service – you can invite your own workers to submit their information to Tradepass, ensuring you provide a total package.

As a HIA Tradepass Contractor, you’ll receive all this for an annual fee:
