HOW WE CAN HELP

Level Playing Field provides professional advice to assist companies in the construction industry to collect debt and improve cash flow. Ultimately, we aim to partner with contractors to assist them in anticipating cash flow issues, business and project risks before they arise. We understand that this isn’t always possible and we can help untangle even the most complex case.

When A Dispute About Payment Arises

Clients usually contact us when they have an outstanding debt they are unable to recover. We assess a client’s legal position and their options to recover outstanding debt. We can assist you with:

  • Negotiation with other parties
  • Solicitor’s letter of demand
  • Adjudication
  • Collecting debt through court proceedings
When you are experiencing Cash Flow Issues

Having owned and operated a property development, construction and large subcontractor business, we are familiar with various methods to obtain finance to improve cash flow

We offer onsite training sessions for accounts receivable staff. This empowers your business to follow up on outstanding debt and consult with us only when the problem has escalated.

Our strategic partnerships with financial institutions allow us to assist in exploring funding options.

In the construction industry, the cash flow swings are significant. The assessment of works can be unpredictable and project delays increase pressure on the cash flow of all contractors. When a dispute arises as to variations, defects or works complete, this can sometimes be the “last straw”. As a result, contractors are in a weak negotiating position to recover outstanding payments.

LEVEL PLAYING FIELD OFFERS LOW COST QUASI-LEGAL AND FINANCING SOLUTIONS AS THE PRIMARY SOLUTION

The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (“Security of Payment Act”) was created to ensure the security of payments to contractors in the construction industry. Insolvency is also prevalent in the construction industry. Enforcing payments swiftly under the Security of Payment Act can mean that funds are recovered before insolvency becomes an issue.
