The service is available to all levy-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 can I set up a direct debit?
- Complete your Levy Return online or by post (paper Levy Return). We'll 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 do I need to apply?
To benefit from the full 10 monthly instalments, we must receive your completed Direct Debit Mandate and Levy Return by the published deadlines.
You will receive notice of how much is due before any money is collected from your bank.
What happens next?
Once you have set up your direct debit and the Levy has been assessed, we will send you a document called the combined Levy Assessment Notice and Direct Debit Advance Notice - you will receive this at least 10 days before the first instalment is taken from your bank account.
The combined Levy Assessment Notice and Direct Debit Advance Notice shows you the amount of Levy you owe and the dates and amounts of each instalment payment.
Provided you complete your Levy Return each year, the Direct Debit instalment payments will remain in place and there is nothing more for you to do. You won’t need to cancel the arrangement with your bank at any time.
