Create a Payment Programme


To create a payment programme that contains subcontractor claimed amounts, approved amounts and reasons for the difference between claimed and approved amounts.


Construction businesses operating in Australia and New Zealand may need to create payment programmes to facilitate payment application approval and claims of work performed by subcontractors. In a typical payment programme workflow, subcontractors submit a payment application for work performed. The main contractor will review the payment application and either approve or reject the amounts that the subcontractor is claiming for work performed. When a payment programme is created from the payment application, the amounts claimed, amounts approved and reasons for rejected amounts will be noted on the payment programme form.
