Security of Payment Legislation has been in force in Australia since 2000 so it is tried and tested and has passed all challenges and criticisms. In short this type of legislation works and is very effective to get results quickly.

All the Australian States and Territories, New Zealand and Singapore have recognized that Security of Payment legislation schemes resolves payment disputes quickly and assists cash flow down the contract chain for the benefit of contractors, suppliers and employees.
