Membership of the ASA provides many benefits, most notably having your say in establishing fairer business practices. We work tirelessly on your behalf to improve conditions for subcontractors, working with the Government, industry and wider business community.

The ASA has also negotiated several commercial arrangements
to benefit our members:

  • PPSR – Do you have your tools and equipment covered in case of the principle going under while you’re on site? – What about your financials and terms of credit?

  • Legal – Are you aware of the changes to security of payment legislation? Do you know what your rights are regarding getting paid on time?

  • Insurance – Are your tools adequately covered? What about your employee’s tools? What about any damage caused while on site by your employees or subcontractors? What about your materials on site?

  • Recruitment – Do you need help on a Permanent or casual basis? Do you know the best way to get temporary help and all the legalities of having someone work for you or contract for you?

  • WHS – This is a mind field and unless you devote some time to understanding your responsibilities, you’re walking a tightrope. Are you sure you’re doing all that is necessary? It’s all good until someone gets hurt.

  • Accounting – Good finance knowledge is essential for budgeting planning and business growth. Are your finances being professionally checked and do you know how to read them to make the right decisions?

  • Finance – Are you cash positive? Do you have enough cash to grow or cover yourself in lean times? What happens if you don’t get paid on time?

  • Drug & Alcohol Testing – Ensure you are compliant with WHS and legal obligations 

  • Taxation – The Tax office is clamping down on all business and will put you under if you’re not on top of your liabilities with the tax office. Are you?

  • Leasing – Do you rent a location, equipment or vehicles. Do you understand the leasing agreement? What happens if they want to recall the lease at short notice?

  • Trade Insurance – Would you like to know if the person your working for has a bad credit rating? What if they go into liquidation. Will you get your money that’s owed? You can insure against this!

  • Training – Good training will enhance your workforce and save you time and money. Are you trained adequately for the work you’re doing? Are your licenses up to date? How can you perform better? Are your contractors licenses up to date?

  • Contracts – Did you read the last contract you signed? What risks are being passed down by the principle? Are you at risk if something goes wrong? Should a lawyer take a look?

  • Unfair Contracts – Do you know the latest legislation regarding unfair contracts and how to identify them?

  • Networking – Do you Network and build that important relationship with other trades and service providers? It is proven the right networking is beneficial. What about getting to know your competitors and building on that relationship for your mutual benefit?

Testimonials

"The benefit of ASA contacts, especially in regard to PPSR and legal advice has been instrumental in my business. The networking with other like minded subcontractors has also been important with overcoming industry specific issues.

I have been a member since inception of the ASA and I am proud to be involved in promoting the importance of the Association for all Subcontractors."

Trudy Marshall

"A fantastic association that is led by quality people who bat for the interests of the subcontractor."

Ray Hodge

"An excellent association that give a good opportunity to learn more and connect with other businesses associated with construction industry.

Not only that but it also helps businesses to secure themselves by getting the right advice from the list of shortlisted prepered professional service providers."

Naveesh Sharma

"I believe ASA is essential for any Sub Contractor as for a very low annual investment the Information and workshops in any given year represents outstanding value, particularly compared with other Industry associations.

Since being involved the networking and people that I otherwise would not have met has been mutually beneficial. Most Importantly many more people understand how the PPSR used correctly ensures they are a Secured Creditor in their businesses.

To kick off 2020, I am offering the following to all existing and new ASA members including suppliers and Tradies.

Kevin Tiggemann

Being a member of the ASA provides networking opportunities and to keep updated on legislation and laws effecting subbies in a casual and relaxed environment. It’s a great way to meet people from across many different industries that understand the issues faced by contractors. The price of membership is amazing value for money. Highly recommend joining!”

I joined ASA to have someone representing my interest as a small business. By joining I’ve gained access to resources to assist my business which are updated regularly and has also allowed me numerous networking opportunities which have been a real asset
