Contractors Head Office Overheads Entitlement for Delays

MALCONLAW as added four Articles on the subject of Contractors entitlement to Head Office Overheads and the three main formula adopted to calculate the entitlement as an alternative to the Contractor proving his actual Head Office Overheads where the courts allow.

The articles added are:

Remember entitlement would only exist where the Contractor can:

Establish delay was due to the Employers obligations or risks under the contract or common law.

The Delays resulted in Contractor suffering losses.

The Contractor was prevented from taking on new work as a result of the delay.


We hope you find the Articles useful.
