The New York Prompt Payment Act

The New York Prompt Payment Act (or "the Act") serves to expedite payment of money that is owed to contractors who are working on certain projects that exceed $150,000. The Act covers contracts between:

  • Owners and contractors
  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Subcontractors and their subcontractors

It does not cover public construction projects.
