This service is available to all CITB-registered employers that submit their Levy Return by the published deadline.
The service is free of charge, and once you have set up your direct debit we will do the rest for you.
How to set up the direct debit
- Complete your Levy Return online or by post (called a paper Levy Return). We then calculate your Levy Assessment so you know how much levy you need to pay.
- Download the Direct Debit Mandate (PDF 26.06 KB), fill in the form and send it to:
Levy & Grant Customer Services
If you need help, call us on 0344 994 4455 to find out if we can set up your direct debit for you over the telephone.
When to apply
To benefit from the full 10 monthly instalments, we must receive your Levy Return and completed Direct Debit Mandate by the published deadlines.
You will receive notice of how much levy is due before any money is collected from your bank.
What happens next
After you have set up your direct debit and we have calculated your Levy Assessment, we will send you a document called the combined Levy Assessment Notice and Direct Debit Advance Notice. This shows you the amount of levy you owe and the dates and amounts of each instalment payment.
You will receive this document at least 10 days before the first instalment is taken from your bank account.
Provided you complete your Levy Return on time each year and you don’t cancel the direct debit arrangement with your bank, the payments will remain in place year on year. You won't need to do anything else.
