Subcontractor Claims

Optional Module

Streamline Claiming Process

The module is designed for entry of subcontractor claims against a job or project. This allows the set up of subcontractors as suppliers in the system and assigns them to specific jobs or projects, allowing the processing of interim claims submitted from subcontractors for the work done so far. A claim received by the main contractor is then entered through the subcontractors claim form and is processed as an invoice from that subcontractor.
The module is built to handle both perspectives. So whether you are the main contractor or subcontractor, your interim claims can be easily managed with ABM.


Cost tracking

Subcontractor work is entered by the job, which is then separated into cost centres and stages for easy identification of progress costs. Details such as work and tax rates may be entered and used for claim calculations.

Claims processing

Flexibility in the handling of progress claims means that subcontractor costs can be processed in cumulative or period claim amounts, and can easily adjust for and manage variations as they occur such as discounts. Each claim is also provided with a unique reference number for tracking purposes.

Retention management

If you are the subcontractor, ABM will allow you to produce interim payment applications to the main contractor. For nominated subcontractors or main contractors, ABM accurately records retention amounts retained by the main contractor and will prompt for the release of any balance of the amount of the retention at the end of the retention period.​
