About Us

Why did we start TradeBox Australia?

We understand that running a trade contracting or subcontracting business is a tough gig, and that just working hard isn't enough. You need to work smart and be protected with safeguards too.

The best place to protect yourself is in your
commercial trade terms, subcontracts and domestic trade contracts. However, for most tradies and subbies, getting proper trade terms, subcontracts and trade contracts usually feels time consuming, unachievable and far too expensive.

We see what happens to unprotected businesses. We don't want to see any more businesses, families and people broken because they weren't protected.

We hired a building and construction law firm!

 

Our commercial trade terms, our subcontracts and our domestic building trade contracts have been drafted for TradeBox Australia by building and construction law firm, Aitchison Reid Building and Construction Lawyers, specifically for tradies and subbies.

As a subscribed TradeBox customer, the value you receive includes having your commercial trade terms, subcontract and domestic trade contract hosted online for you. You can add the unique online link to each of your commercial trade terms, subcontract and domestic trade contract into your customer quotes, invoices and emails.

To use our commercial trade terms, subcontracts and domestic trade contracts, you purchase a subscription licence from us for each TradeBox product you choose to use. You pay a small setup fee upfront and a yearly subscription spread over 12 months. The commercial trade terms, subcontracts and domestic trade contracts are kept up to date with changes in the law from judicial decisions and from changes in legislation during your subscription at no extra cost.

Building and construction law is different across Australia's states and territories. This means that TradeBox's commercial trade terms, subcontracts and domestic trade contracts are currently for use in Queensland only. We will next launch in NSW and Victoria. After our launch in Victoria, TradeBox will consider whether and when we will launch in other Australian states and territories (and New Zealand).
