Supplementary Payment

Supplementary Grant to stop from April 2018

Supplementary Grant payments have been paid to employers in the past for submitting their Levy Return on time. We indicated in the consultation events and in a number of other forums our intention to stop paying Supplementary Grant.  This is because it is only benefiting a minority of employers and our reforms are designed to reach as wide a pool of employers as possible.

CITB confirms that we will stop paying Supplementary Grant from the new grant year starting from 1st April 2018. This includes not paying grant on training that has commenced before this date and is continuing beyond it.

Where employers have apprentices who have already started before 1st April 2018 and have submitted their Levy Returns on time, we will enhance the rates they are paid for those apprentices by 10% until they complete their training. There will be no enhancement for new apprentices who start from 1st April 2018. 

What is Supplementary Payment?

A Supplementary Payment of 10% is added to all grants claimed by employers who are paying a Levy to CITB and who submit their Levy Returns promptly within certain deadlines.

How do I qualify for payment?

To qualify for Supplementary Payment in the 2017/2018 Grants Scheme year, starting on 1 August 2017, you must have done all of the following by 31 July 2017:

  • Completed a 2016 Levy Return which required you to pay a Levy assessment to CITB
  • Paid this assessment in full or by monthly direct debit
  • Submitted a correctly completed 2017 Levy Return.

Terms and conditions

The conditions for Supplementary Payment are additional to the Grant Scheme Terms and Conditions.
