Contractor offences

Overview

We know that most licensees do the right thing but for the times when things go wrong, we become involved. Get to know all the offences under the QBCC Act and understand the consequences of breaking the law. 

If you have just been fined, we let you know your options to pay or the steps to take if you don’t agree with the reason for the fine. We explain demerit points and answer questions as to how many you accumulate with each offence. You can also find out more about judgment debts and how they affect your licence. 

There are a few reasons why your licence can be suspended or cancelled and we give a run-down of what you can do to re-instate it. Excluded individuals can’t hold a licence for a period of time. Find out why.
