Progress Payments and Deposits in the Western Australia Cabinet Making Industry

September 01, 2019

Building and Energy released a consultation paper in relation to progress payments and deposits in the cabinet making industry to obtain stakeholder feedback. The feedback sought is in relation to increasing deposit values when cabinet makers contract with a home owner from 6.5% up to 20% where the value of off-site work is more than 50% of the total contract price.  In addition, stakeholders are invited to put forward any alternative views and other relevant options.

HIA will be making a submission supporting the proposed reforms and intends to raise additional recommendations which will benefit members of the residential construction industry in Western Australia. 

The consultation paper can be found here 

Should you have any feedback in relation to the review, please call Kiran Kaur, HIA Workplace Adviser on 9492 9200, or email WA_IR&Legal@hia.com.au.
