The estimate can sometimes be higher than the amount you should be paying.
However, you can still complete the Levy Return once you receive the estimate so we can calculate your correct rate – you should wait until you receive your correct assessment before paying the levy.
How to appeal if you think your levy assessment is wrong
You can query your levy assessment directly with CITB. There is no cost for doing this. Please write, explaining your concerns, to The Appeals Section, CITB, Bircham Newton, King’s Lynn, Norfolk, PE31 6RH, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are not happy with our response, you can appeal to an employment tribunal. You have one month to do so from the date that you receive your Levy Assessment Notice.
If you want to appeal to an employment tribunal straight away, you need to contact your local employment tribunal office. The employment tribunal service will charge you for your appeal:
- an issue fee of £160, and
- a hearing fee of £230.
If you query or appeal against your levy assessment, you do not need to pay your levy until you know the outcome.
