Become a Member Subcontractor
The reality of turning your SME sized business into a potential sub-contractor to either the Government or the Corporate/Industrial sector requires a few simple steps.
- You need to comply with the definition of a SME, that is, having between 1-199 employees or sub-contractors.
- You need to be an Australian registered business and registered for GST.
- You employ Australian residents, Indigenous Australians or a combination of the two.
- Your business is profitable (or projected to be profitable, for start-ups) with the capacity to sustain itself or grow.
- Your business, or any of its directors are not trading insolvent, have not been found guilty, liable or suffered any adverse judgements in any relevant legal proceedings.
- Your business or any of its directors are not named by the Director of Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency as an employer currently not complying with the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999.
- You must hold Public Liability, Workers Compensation and Professional Indemnity Insurance cover at the levels required by our customers (if required, ServeGate may be able to assist with your Professional Indemnity cover. For more information, please enquire about this at the time of applying to join our community).
ServeGate will conduct a thorough due diligence process in order to ensure that your business is viable and has the resources, and/or access to additional resources, to successfully engage with Government and Industry and meet their requirements. This will include a review of your business plan and financials.
Having satisfied our review process, and been offered membership to the ServeGate community, you will then be required to pay a joining fee.
