Paying the Levy

After you have completed your CITB Levy Return and received your Levy Assessment Notice explaining how much levy you need to pay, you can arrange your levy payment.

When to pay

You need to pay the levy, or set up a direct debit to pay by instalments, within 30 days of receiving your Levy Assessment Notice. We sent your 2017 Levy assessment to you in spring 2018.

We'll send your 2018 assessment to you in spring 2019, based on your 2018 Levy Return.

You need to have made your levy payments in full, or have made appropriate Direct Debit arrangements to pay it, to receive grant payments.

Payment methods

There are two ways you can pay the levy:

  • by direct debit in up to 10 interest-free monthly instalments. This service helps you to stagger the payments across a year and is easy to set up.
  • in full as one lump sum.

How to set up your direct debit

  1. Download the Direct Debit Mandate form (PDF 26.06 KB)
  2. Complete the form and return it by post to:
    Levy & Grant Customer Services
    Bircham Newton
    King's Lynn
    Norfolk, PE31 6RH
  3. At least 10 days before the first payment is due, we’ll send you a document explaining how much levy you owe and the date and amount of each instalment. The document is called the combined Levy Assessment Notice and Direct Debit Advance Notice. 
  4. The payments will leave your bank account automatically each month – you won't need to do anything else.

Provided you submit your Levy Return on time each year and don’t cancel your direct debit, the payments will remain in place year to year.
