Your pathway to becoming a licenced building contractor

Why do I need to be licenced?

You must have a contractor licence before you contract, sub-contract or advertise to do residential building work where the reasonable market cost of the labour and materials is more than $5,000 (including GST). For more information on this you can visit NSW Fair Trading directly by following the link below.
