Due date for payments in the construction industry
The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (also known as the Construction Act) includes provisions to ensure that payments are made promptly throughout the supply chain.
The 'due date' is the date when a payment becomes due, triggering the payment process. The due date is not the date that a payment should be received (that is the 'final date for payment'), it simply triggers the payment process. The agreed contract, or the time frames detailed in the Scheme for Construction Contracts, will define the due date(s).
