Relevant contracts (subject to the exclusions set out in the following seven sub-sections), are those where a contractor, who in the course of carrying on their own business:
(i) supplies to another person services for or in relation to the performance of work; or
(ii) hires a worker to perform that work; or
(iii) outsources that work to another contractor to complete.
