Levy interest and extension

If you’re a contractor who is registered as a worker, you must lodge a return every three months and pay the levy.

Interest at the prescribed rate is payable on overdue levy payments. This is added to the levy owed.

The prescribed rate is 6% above the cash rate last published by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

  • For interest accrued between 1 January and 30 June - immediately before 1 January.
  • For interest accrued between 1 July and 31 December - immediately before 1 July.

Let us know us if special circumstances are affecting your ability to pay the levy on time. We may be able to grant an extension of time to pay. We may also decide to waive or reduce the amount of interest charged for late payment.

If the Corporation decides that your circumstances do not warrant an extension of time or a waiver or reduction of interest, you can appeal to the independent Contract Cleaning Industry Long Service Leave Committee.
