I'm using Reckon Accounts Pro 2014. Is there any current Reckon program that would enable me to attach Terms and Conditions to a Tax Invoice i.e Page 2 or do I still need to attach a separate PDF when I email the Invoice?

Er... by you asking "which section" I took it you were aware of which act the CCA was. If you are an accountant or similar you may wish to advise any clients of yours who do not currently use it of it's existence. 

Try google, "CCA 2002", its the Construction Contracts Act 2002.

FYI;

The section reads as follows but by all means, look it up yourself and you will see what many contractors are using to protect themselves from non payment of work done.

20 Payment claims

(1)

A payee may serve a payment claim on the payer for a payment,—

(a)

if the contract provides for the matter, at the end of the relevant period that is specified in, or is determined in accordance with the terms of, the contract; or



(b)

if the contract does not provide for the matter in the case of a progress payment, at the end of the relevant period referred to in section 17(2); or



(c)

if the contract does not provide for the matter in the case of a single payment expressly agreed under section 14(1)(a), following the completion of all of the construction work to which the contract relates.





(2)

A payment claim must—

(a)

be in writing; and



(b)

contain sufficient details to identify the construction contract to which the payment relates; and



(c)

identify the construction work and the relevant period to which the payment relates; and



(d)

state a claimed amount and the due date for payment; and



(e)

indicate the manner in which the payee calculated the claimed amount; and



(f)

state that it is made under this Act.





(3)

A payment claim must be accompanied by—

(a)

an outline of the process for responding to that claim; and



(b)

an explanation of the consequences of—

(i)

not responding to a payment claim; and



(ii)

not paying the claimed amount, or the scheduled amount, in full (whichever is applicable).







(4)

The matters referred to in subsection (3)(a) and (b) must—

(a)

be in writing; and



(b)

be in the prescribed form (if any).

You may not realize that is a New Zealand act and this is Australia. The law doesn't apply here. Thank you

Yes, I do realise it is a NZ act and this is New Zealand where I am which you may not have realized. Reckon is sold and used here too, just like petrol, cars etc.

To come back to the original subject, there is still a requirement for T&Cs to be added to the invoicing system of Reckon by a multitude of users of the system.

Shame Reckons clients/users cannot contact the programmers directly to make suggestions to Improve the system.
