Construction Bulletin – March 2012Author : Paul Spezza, Partner, Andrew Moore, Partner, Nick Lux, PartnerConstruction and Contract Works
In the past several months we have seen a number of actual and proposed changes to legislation that will affect participants in the construction industry. In the attached bulletin, we briefly examine changes to the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) which have now commenced, as well as proposed Regulations that will apply under the Taxation Administration Act 1953 (Cth) and which will commence on 1 July 2012. We also briefly consider a number of recent decisions from the Courts which involved issues commonly arising for the industry and from which some guidance can be taken for future dealings.
