Two types of ‘payment certificates’ are issued by the principal agent to the contractor – an interim payment certificate regularly every month (or other agreed interval) until a single final payment certificate is issued after the final account has been agreed

Interim payment certificates must include money due to all n/s subcontractors listed in a schedule for payment by the contractor

Should the contractor fail to make payment to a n/s subcontractor the employer may instruct the principal agent to issue a ‘direct’ payment certificate to a subcontractor
