WELCOME TO TRICKS OF YOUR TRADE
Subcontracting with confidence for Construction Subcontractors
WHAT WE DO
We help Aussie Subbies manage their builders' contracts, and get paid on time.
Our fixed price, done for you contract review service will see you job ready with an even playing field.
Please note that this is a commercial review - not a legal review. That means we won't redraft terms or give you legal advice. Rather, we point out the obligations in the contract that are in conflict with your operating practices.
We will review your contract, help you negotiate better terms and give you a full suite of template notices to administer the contract once it is signed.
THE SUBBIES' TOOLBOX
The Subbies' Toolbox is an end to end contract management and security of payment system with ongoing support.
We bring the Subbies' Toolbox to you in a monthly subscription format, with ongoing support and monthly workshops.
Delivered by our Director, Michelle Cirson, stress less knowing you have a security of payment and contracting expert in your executive team.

HERE TO PICK MY BRAIN?
When it comes to debt recovery, the longer you wait to chase your money, the less likely you are to be paid in full, or at all. If you want the science behind this fact, check out my blog on the topic.
If your gut is telling you your builder's job is going south, chances are it is, and your payments could be caught up in the collateral.
Early advice will pay you dividends when it comes to construction contracts.

You won’t catch me billing in six minute increments, asking you for money up front in trust or dribbling case law at you from the head of my boardroom table.
Truth is, I'm more at home in a crib hut. Take a moment to watch my video, because there’s something I need you to know.
