Tips for Subcontractors using L2B

A question that is constantly on the minds of any construction professional looking to grow his or her company bottom line. While there are many possible answers, only a few true solutions.
So the challenge becomes, how do you stand out among the noise and improve the likelihood that your company will be chosen by the contractor to invest their time, energy, and money in your business.

Firstly Tips for Subcontractors

1.    Be upfront with the contractor, ensuring your contract is clear and detailed. Disputes often arise between the main contractor and subcontractor not only about how the project should be executed but also disagreements down the road about what was previously “agreed” on in the original contract. The most effective way to settle disputes before they occur is through contracts. Creating a detailed contract allows no room for debate or miscommunication about expectations, which saves time, improves efficiency, and avoids ambiguity.
2.    Understand your rights and also what you are liable for. The subcontractor is liable for the scope of their work and the safety of their employees. It is vital that subcontractors obtain the proper insurance as well as understand what they are responsible for lawfully.
3.    Do not take on too much. Subcontractors may be tempted to take on too much at times and If the subcontractor finds himself/herself being overwhelmed, this now can lead to underperformance, despite this temptation it is important to be strategic and methodical when choosing which projects to accept. This selectivity will lead to being beneficial, which in turn will lead to higher productivity and quality that will lead to acknowledgement and admiration by the main contractor.
4.    Go the extra mile. The best way to grow the subcontractor’s clientele is to improve customer relations.  Every industry faces a greater profit margin from a client, they already know rather than a new client. Staying connected is very important. When working on a project for a general contractor, go beyond the extra mile this shows the general contractor that you care about the project and that you are a good choice for future projects they might have.  Each job that a subcontractor performs should act as an interview for future business.
5. Your brand and business promotion. The subcontractor must also invest in marketing and promotion. Marketing and promotion can include thank you emails. This ensures the main contractor has your details offhand. If in the event your company details change, make sure that you are still in the loop, update these details with the main contractor so you stay informed and most of all not miss out on any opportunities.  Keeping in touch and in contact is very important.

It is vitally important that you create a brand that speaks out, by the dedication and quality of your work, referrals are also very important. The voice of the contractors speaking your praises will most definitely amplify your brand more positively.

Do not make things difficult than need be, all you need to be is organized, methodical, and knowledgeable in all business practices and use these tips and tricks to outsmart the difficulties that subcontractors often face

L2B Subscription Form FAQs

posted in: How To 0

The purpose of the L2B Subscription Forms is to collect relevant and required information to

  • A: Load company details onto our database
  • B: Set up the users profile to ensure that clients receive leads of interest ergo derive maximum value from the L2B Subscription
  • C: Ensure correct billing info (Tax Invoices) preferred and agreed to bill terms (frequency and method) are followed
  • D: To record the client’s acceptance of L2B T’s and C’s with regards to the use of information, account arrears, and cancellation procedures

“One of the internet’s strengths is its ability to help consumers find the right needle in a digital haystack of data” – Jared Sandberg

It is imperative to provide L2B with accurate company information when completing subscription forms.

This information is vital in building a unique profile for receipt of relevant leads and ensures an accurate and true listing of your Company on L2B. This, in turn, represents your company to the public and private sector in the construction and related industries across SA and Africa, therein awarding clients the added benefit of accurate exposure which results in additional opportunities.

FAQs surrounding L2B Forms for Debit Order and Direct Deposit Billing

1. Do we have to complete all fields?

Yes: all fields should be completed in full.
All fields on the L2B Forms are there for a reason – by design, to obtain the most important and relevant information for Account, Profile, and Directory.
Depending on the Subscription Choice and Billing option Forms consist of 2 to 4 pages on average, which can be completed in under 15 minutes.

2. Our scanner/fax machine is not working/no access to scanning/fax machine facilities (A) can we take photos of the Forms and email them? (B) Do you accept forms in any format?

(A) Yes: in specific circumstances, we will accept photo’s of each page, provided that the image is clear, and in good condition with all the text readable, and the form signed
(B) Yes: we accept various formats to accommodate clients. The only condition is that Forms are completed clearly and legibly.

*Unclear/incomplete Forms cause incomplete/incorrect capturing of information, resulting in misrepresentation, missed opportunities/leads, and errors on Tax Invoices

3. What additional/supporting documents should be submitted?

No additional/supporting documents are required: unless it is proof of payment for Direct Deposit to ensure immediate activation.

4. What/who qualifies as an Authorised Signatory?

Direct Deposit: The Company Representative responsible for payments/signs off and approves payments on the company’s behalf
Debit Order:  The Company Representative with signing power on the Company Bank Account (if deductions are on a Personal Bank Account then only the Account Holder can sign off as Authorised Signatory)

5. Do you accept the Signatory Name and Surname details completed as initials and surname?

No: Initials with Surname Format will not be accepted (‘J.J. Soap’  is invalid)
Signatory details have to be completed with the First Name/s and Surname written out in full (‘John Joe Soap’ is valid)

6. (A) Do you accept Digital Signatures? (B) Can we digitally complete subscription forms?

(A) No: All Forms have to be signed by hand and initialed in the relevant fields by hand (no typed/digital Initials/Signatures)
(B) Yes: You may complete forms digitally, BUT you will still be required to then print the forms to sign and initial as per above.

7. Is a ‘PP’ signature accepted in place of the Authorised Signatory’s signature?

No: Signatures in PP capacity isn’t permitted. The Signature/Initials has to match details listed as Authorised Signatory on the forms (no exceptions).

8. Can we run our Debit Order on any day of the month?

No: Debit Order Deduction runs twice a month only (Mid-Month (15th) and Month-End (last working day).

9. Where do we add the info for Invoicing?

The section below ‘Details Completed by Accounts Department’ heading on Pg 1 of all Subscription forms is the information that will reflect on Tax Invoices.

10. Billing Frequency: Monthly vs Month-to-Month notes

Direct Deposit Forms indicate Annual Rates only. To sign up on Monthly Billing (or Quarterly/Bi-Annual), stipulate ‘Monthly Payments’ in the notes.

All subscriptions remain ongoing with 14 days written notice for cancellation even though the billing frequency is on a monthly basis. There is no ‘Month-to Month’ payment terms whereby a subscription runs on a “no payment equals no access” basis.
If payment is not received, with no written notice to cancel/suspend in advance, the monthly subscription will remain active, and the account will be billed in arrears which then has to be settled in full with a 1-month payment in advance before re-activation.
“Month-to-Month’ notes on subscription forms will not be accepted as it can be interpreted as something other than billing on a monthly frequency and on an ongoing basis, thus it is required to add “monthly billing/EFT” in the notes for sign-up on Monthly Billing Terms.

11. Can we subscribe for a set period only?

Yes: This option is available and can be indicated in the notes, for example: ‘6 Months Subscription Period’ and/or ‘Annual Subscription: 12 Months Subscription Period only’. You may define further by stating your subscription period, at per month billing or once off payment: ‘6 Months Subscription Period at 6 x Monthly Payments’ or ‘6 months Subscription Period at once off bi-annual payment’.
Should you wish to continue after the set/limited subscription period expires, a new agreement will need to be signed, reverting account billing to the standard ongoing subscription terms for which 14 days written notice will be required/applicable for cancellation.

12. Can we remove Terms and Conditions that we feel are not applicable to our company?

No: Regretfully not. No alternations to Terms and Conditions will be accepted
Should you have any reservations with regards to the Terms and Conditions, and wish to discuss and obtain more information before signing, please contact L2B Accounts or Registrations Department.

13. If we are subscribing for a set/limited period, the 14 days written notice would not apply. Can we remove this from the Terms & Conditions?

No: Terms and Conditions cannot be altered under any circumstances. If you have instructed a set/limited subscription period in the notes of your signed subscription forms, stating “cancel after 6 months subscription period” – then this will substitute as your written notice to cancel. For ease of mind, clients can email L2B Accounts after activation, requesting written confirmation that the request on the agreement to cancel the subscription after the set subscription period has been received and accepted as written notice to cancel, ensuring no additional charges will incur after the limited subscription period.

14. My subscription choice and/or preferred billing option are not indicated on the subscription forms. How do I proceed?

Stipulate custom packages and/or specific billing requirements in the notes section next to the subscription choices. Add detailed notes which reflects the Service, Billing Option and Frequency plus the Rates defined as EX VAT or INCL VAT (Please check with your L2B Representative, or Contact L2B Accounts or Registrations for direction in adding accurate notes)

15. What is the importance of the Company CK/CC Registration Number and the Authorised Signatory ID Number?

*Completion of both Company CK/CC Reg Number and the Authorised Signatory ID Number is preferred if applicable, however by MINIMUM requirement it is compulsory to complete at least 1 of the 2 fields.

(A) In the event you have no Company CK/CC Reg Number, it is compulsory to add the Signatory ID Number in the field provided below the signatory details
(B) If the Authorised Signatory does not have an ID Number or does not want to disclose their ID Number it is then compulsory to complete the Company CK/CC Registration number in the field provided.

(C) In the event you have no Company CK/CC Reg Nr and no Signatory ID Number available to add (non-SA Subscribers) the Signatory can then add their Passport Number in the ID Number field as a substitute.

  • L2B Sub Forms are a legal document, therefore, it is compulsory for the Authorised Signatory to initial next to any/all alterations and/or corrections made to the document
  • For a Scheduled Start Date – complete the ‘Subscription Start Date’ field with the preferred date for activation (If left blank activation will default to immediate)
  • Complete all contact and company details fields. If a field is not applicable to your company specify ‘n/a’ (Forms with blank fields will be resent as incomplete)
  • The contact signing as Authorised Signatory is responsible to initial in all ‘Initial Here’ fields, and next to any alterations/corrections (Signatory details has to be completed in full listing the First Name written out with the Surname, Email, Designation, and ID Number)
  • Cancellations must be submitted to Accounts@L2B.co.za, in writing with 14 days notice and a reason for canceling
  • L2B Accounts will respond to confirm receipt of cancellation with a final deactivation date (If not received within 7 days, a follow-up confirmation is recommended)
  • If a credit on the account exceeds the value of fourteen (14) days subscription period, then the account will be deactivated at the end of the paid-for period
  • To unsubscribe a Debit Order Account we require fourteen (14) days notice prior to the next debit run
  • Cancellations made directly with the Bank (debit instructions) won’t suffice as a cancellation of your L2B Agreement. The L2B Account will remain active and possibly run into arrears which then has to be settled.
