Advice for Approving Authorities

The long service levy is payable prior to the commencement of building works.

All approving authorities have obligations under the Building & Construction Industry Long Service Payments Act 1986 and / or the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 to ensure that the correct levies are paid prior to issuing any approvals allowing work to commence.

The levy is calculated at 0.35% of the GST inclusive value of works.

On-line information for approving authorities is in development stage. If there is information you would like to see available here, please direct your enquiry to levy@longservice.nsw.gov.au and we will consider adding it to these pages.
