Contacts - Workers comp and public liability added to Contact Record

Started by David Weynton in Feature Requests | Idea


In Australia, all subcontractors with an ABN, are required to submit there workers comp, public liability and {subcontractors statement (for pty ltd, sole trader not needed)} to be paid.

as the workers comp and public liability are a yearly or monthly payment, can we have these details added to the system or contacts. So that when a new invoice is added and one of the insurances is out of date.... it will flag up as a reminder to get the new insurance from the contractor. As paying people who do not have their insurance up to date can hinder us a fine.

or is there an add on ????

Also, is there a way to set up a red flag for invoices with the same amount of money, so contractors who accidentally send through doubled up invoices.
Cheers for the added detail here, David. There's no way to add in the detail of the workers' comp and public liability in their contact record, atm. We'll keep an eye on demand for this here and let you know if there's any work that's been picked up in this space.

Re. a red flag for invoices with the same amount of money - no feature to do this right now, but as an alternative, you could run the Payable Invoice Summary report, Group it by Contacts and then hit the (Net) column heading on the report to sort the results to quickly identify the invoices with the same amount. Check out our support article and these snips for more info.
