Construction site

The Financial and Cyber Crime Group, Queensland Police Service has observed a trend in invoice scams targeting members of the building industry in Queensland. A number of businesses have already lost income as a consequence.

The scam involves offenders engaging with businesses pretending to be a supplier or creditor and convince businesses operators to change the suppliers banking account details held on record.

When to lodge your Form 4

Is the work operational before you issue an invoice?

As a licensed plumber, you give a quote for the installation of 10 toilets and this is considered to be a single transaction.

The quote is accepted and you commence work. Each toilet becomes operational in turn over a period of five days.

The work is considered to be completed after the tenth toilet becomes operational on the fifth day. An invoice is issued a week later.
