Complete JCT Contracts Online with JCT On Demand

The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) has launched a new digital service to make it easier for contractors to fill in and print JCT contracts online.

JCTOn Demand guides contractors through the process of completing popular JCT contracts online, helping them to make sure that all relevant sections are filled in. Contractors can complete and update their answers in line with the text and view the contract document in progress. At the end, they will get a final copy of the contract as well as a fully-tracked changed version and a summary of the changes.

JCTOn Demand enables users to:

• Complete the contract section by section, with explanatory notes to help answer questions
• Preview a draft of the contract and make further changes if needed
• Save and print drafts
• Email a watermarked pdf of the draft contract to others
• Save and print the final contract
• Access completed contracts.

JCTOn Demand is a pay-as-you-go service suitable for anyone looking to create a one-off JCT contract without amending the original clauses. For each JCTOn Demand contract, the price is the equivalent to two hard copies of the contract, one for each party.

JCTOn Demand is currently available for the JCT Design and Build Contract (£101.88 + VAT) and the JCT Minor Works Building Contract (£48.64 + VAT), with further contracts to be rolled out in due course. The JCTOn Demand versions incorporate the CDM Regulations 2015 changes, which came into force on 6 April 2015, so there is no need for separate amendment sheets.
