Over 3 Hours of ‘Getting Paid’ Strategies from
THE
Construction Debt Recovery Expert


Anthony Igra - Founder
Contractors Debt Recovery

Over these three hours I guarantee I will dramatically improve your ability to 'get
paid'...forever

I will reveal to you “strategies, ideas, and tactics.
I have learned and successfully used thousands of times in over 8 years running Constructions Claims, to help you whip your contracting business into shape, and to tighten up your paperwork and close all those gaps you know you have…. but just don’t know how to fix.


I’ll show you!

 


Who Am I and Why Should You Listen to Me?


I started Contactors Debt Recovery in 2006 with the single aim of making the recovery of payments for contractors accessible and effective. We now recover on average $400,000 - $500,000 every month for contractors.

And that isn’t the big end of town. It’s the guys that are owed $5K, $20K and $37K etc.

So that’s a lot of pockets with money in them each month!

 
I’ve been featured on ABC Radio, Kochie’s Business Builders, in Building Contractor, Earthmoving Contractor, and Connections magazines, and I am an editorial contributor to Sourceable, the industry’s online bible.

I provide payment support to the members of several major trade associations.

Do You have What it Takes
to Do What has To be Done?

If you want to get your payment practices right, and get your house in order, then you’re going to have to do something about it. More importantly you’re going to need two important ingredients for this to work:
1. Your desire to make things better. You cannot tolerate the current situation of being paid nothing, or almost nothing each month.
......and
2. You must be committed to putting into practice what I’m going to show you.

The Keys to Getting Paid are Not Hard, But You Must Follow My Formula...


I truly want you to put the ‘get paid’ disciplines to work in your contracting business. How many times have I seen contractors get tangled in payment disputes for the sake of some simple steps that they could have taken to get that money in the bank? I will teach you those steps.

Now I have spent years combating every reason for non-payment known to man and have learned the key methods, documents, and business practices needed to make it very, very hard for a client to justify not paying you.

And I am going to reveal to you the key disciplines, and that includes some of the very same key documents I use in my recovery work. It is the fastest way for you to get this in place in your business. Why?
 

1. Because you don’t need to learn the hard way;  learn from someone who’s been doing it successfully for years, and

2. You get it explained to you in video format.

No long booklets to read!

Dear Anthony, I'm very impressed with the result you have achieved for me and in the manner in which you did so: Professional, courteous, and effective. 5 Stars mate! Since I started working with you any contractor that I hear say he isn't being paid, and doesn't know what to do, Iimmediately tell them to stop wasting time and money and get with the Contractors Debt Recovery program.

Plumbing Contractor Recovered
$14,668

It has been a pleasure to have been involved with an organisation that is truly committed and constantly provides exceptional customer service. From our first meeting we started to feel comfortable that you knew what we wanted and went about developing our requirements in a confident and professional manner. Everybody has a horror story about their experience in the recovery of monies but your organisation has provided a professional service throughout the ordeal.
We are delighted with the result that you have produced and have no hesitation in providing our highest recommendation.

Security Systems Contractor
Recovered $54,700

Hi Anthony, I would like to thank you very much for your help in recovering the money that was owed to me. The adjudicated amount ($15,860.03) has been paid by cheque and now cleared. I was always being informed as to what was happening with my claim and what to expect next. It took a large load off my shoulders having you prepare our claim for us, as I am quite sure without Contractors Debt Recovery I would still be trying to get paid. Also thank you to Melanie for her assistance. I would be very happy to recommend to others in the same predicament that I was in, to get in contact with you.

I tested this out myself a few years ago with a
client who agreed to work the way I am going to
show you in this series….

Of the $1.3 million contract, $1,270,00.00 was paid
on time and without a fight!

Think about it for a moment. Look at most of the clients that are not paying you. You will notice that mostly they are doing exactly what you are NOT doing. They are...
 

  • Reconciling amounts paid and payable
  • Recording variations… (or at least the ones they don't want to pay!)
  • Issuing notices and correspondence
  • Taking selective photos that suit their purposes
  • Getting it in writing… (or avoiding getting it in writing!)

But what are you doing? Most likely relying on your phone, oral agreements, and some onsite conversations! In construction, the side that gets away without paying is the side that has the paperwork that tells the story that suits them.

After completing approx. $700,000 worth of work for a large Sydney developer, the final claim of $88,000 was not forthcoming. Initially, we received all the usual excuses and then they stopped replying to phone calls and emails. We engaged CDR and within 3 days, Anthony and his team had filed an application for adjudication. The following week, we received a phone call from the developer’s solicitor who claimed he had instructions from his client to settle the matter. We did so on our terms and the money was in our account the following day. It has been a pleasure working with Anthony and his team. They are committed to getting you your money - Anthony remained in touch even while he was on holidays! The whole process was easy and effective.

You Don’t Need to Be a Novelist to Get
This Stuff Right

You don’t need to spend hours every day typing and writing. The ‘Get Paid’ disciplines I am going to show you are simple processes that you just need to get used to. And the news is you WILL have to do them every day. But if it takes more than 20 minutes I’ll be surprised. And once you see the results you’ll love every minute of it!

 

 

 

So What’s the Solution?

Rather than the pain of trying to figure it out on your own through trial and error, with lots of risk and lost payments, you need to find one place where all you need is accessible, easy to follow, and most importantly - taught by someone who’s done it and seen it all.
 

It’s time you put an end to working for FREE.

Isn't it time you stopped hunting around each month for the cash to run your business?

Haven’t you had enough of that?

Isn’t it time you made a powerful change?

When was the last time a Letter of Demand
worked for you?


There is plenty of material floating around about Debt Recovery. But its very general. As we know debt recovery in the construction business is a very different animal! When was the last time a letter of demand worked for you? The key difference is that in construction the debt recovery actually starts even before there is a debt. That is key. Yet this is where most contractors get it so wrong.
 

What you need to have in place are DEFENSIVE STRATEGIES.
 

The Payment Mastery Video Series shows you what these strategies are, how they work,
and even gives you templates to use download and use immediately!

So What is ‘Payment Mastery’?
First, let me tell you what it’s NOT

It is not vague, fluffy waffle filled with generalisations and motherhood statements. It also is not a highly technical manual, or a complicated legal course. It is also not one of those things where you walk away more confused then when you started asking yourself

“So What am I supposed to do with that?”


This is information for the battle-field. Hard Core, practical strategies, and simple tactics that anyone can bring into their contracting business. After having a hand in thousands of payment disputes I can tell you that the fluffy stuff does not work. So now that you know what it’s not - let me tell you a little bit about how I designed this Video Series.

Below is an overview of what we will cover together in this video series.

Hi Anthony, we received a fax with banking receipt yesterday from [Debtor]. The funds are in our account today and all good. Great outcome. I wasn’t feeling confident even with the adjudication determination but pleased they decided to pay without taking it further. Thanks for your assistance, hopefully I won’t have to use your service again, but with business I probably will have to. I am now  pleased that I don’t have to chase debt on my own and that payment claims under the security  of payment act work.

Documentation - Creating evidence of your work easily and quickly

What categories of documents do you use to run your business. There are 5 categories. But I’ll bet your only using two of them right now… the other three are what protects your payments.

There is one key aspect of your documentation that will put your evidence far ahead of any would-be nonpayer. We’ll take a good look at that, and how to use it.
