That's good news then. Being owed 7m tho. I bet that's keeping their financial people on their toes and giving them some sleepless nights. Thanks Roly.

It's a frightening amount of money to be owed. Don't think I'd want to be in a position that deals with that many zeros.

It's all well and good being owed that money, the trouble is unless you
can survive until you get paid the money, it means nothing. The major contractors are well known for subbie bashing and this is just the trick they play because after your company has gone bust they then make it so difficult for the receivers to get hold of the money they usually give up or at best only manage to get a fraction of what is owed. Things like breaking of contract and unfinished works coupled with bogus claims against the subbie are all common place. This sort of practice is often the only way they make any money especially after going in at stupid low prices to win the job. I have been on the receiving end of an attempt of this fraud and seen many go down because of it. It still goes on especially in times of recession as we have now. However as Roly rightly says bad talk ans speculation can also do no good for a struggling sub contractor especially if the major company gets wind of difficulties that may or may not excist.

We had the same problems with the major contractors in the 90's,get paid in 30 days but take a 10% cut on your money,or wait 90 days for payment! Big overdraft with the bank up your arse asking when the next cheque is coming in.Its about time something was done to stop these cheating,thieving Wayne kers!

Sad news about mCardle.
As an aside re. subbie payments. When I was working in Scotland for a main contractor often used to get visits from the 'Sheriff' ( real title) who could sequester funds from a subbies payment that were owed by the subbie to someone else down the line. Scottish law being entirely different from English law .
