Engage a TempTask QS to help you get paid your entitlement and on time

Are you receiving your entitlement with Interim Applications for Payment and Final Accounts, and getting paid on time? If you are, then congratulations - you're probably part of the minority. 

For the rest, you are no doubt encountering the daily script of excuses as to why payment is late, delayed or disputed.

You've probably done all you can; put the hours in to undertake the work and satisfy the clients every demand, produced a bona fide Application for Payment, provided all necessary supporting information, submitted timeously within the prescribed Contract timescales or to the Payment Schedule dates, communicated with your client regularly and chased up the likely payment date, but are yet to receive payment by the due date, or worse still, not even been provided with a Payment Notice.

Undoubtedly, the agreed 30 day terms when you were expecting money to be in your bank have suddenly extended out to 60, 90 or 120 days, or possibly more.

If you do not have the resources of a Quantity Surveyor as part of your team, these issues can become compounded.  Quantity Surveyors are unique animals.  They speak the same distinct language, and like to communicate with their own species.  They like information to be presented in a familiar, readily identifiable format and in sufficient detail to easily identify how an evaluation has been derived in order to properly assess amounts properly due.  They understand Contract terminology, timescales, and the mechanisms that are required under the Contract.

Quantity Surveyors are, however, a heavy financial burden on a small contractor or subcontractor.  With average salaries for an experienced and competent Quantity Surveyor being circa £50k, and therefore a payroll burden of circa £75k and upwards, employing a QS resource can be costly, particularly if your requirements are not sufficient to keep your QS productive 100% of the time.  In addition, the current upturn in construction activity is seeing a marked resource shortage of experienced, competent and available Quantity Surveyors.
