Did you know you have an increased annual turnover cap as an SC2 licensee?

The new laws have given SC2 licensees the opportunity to have an increased annual turnover of up to $800,000.

SC2 licensees will need to have $46,000 in working capital. You will have at least a year (until 31 December 2020) to strengthen your business.   

Do you have a Deed of Covenant and Assurance (a deed) in place?

If your turnover is between $600,001 and $800,000 and you currently rely on a Deed of Covenant and Assurance, you can continue to rely on the deed until 31 December 2019. However, to remain in the SC2 category, you should aim to have $46,000 in Net Tangible Assets (NTA) after this date. If you wish to be a category 1 licensee with a turnover limit of $800,001 you will need $46,001 NTA from 1 January 2020.

If you are not sure if you have the minimum NTA, the QBCC will work with you to help you understand and meet the requirements

Do you have both an individual and company contractor licence?

Reporting was due by 31 December 2019. However, if you did not meet the deadline you must still provide your annual financial information as soon as possible. This can be done online via the myQBCC portal. This is the case even if your individual turnover is $nil.
