This must be done within 30 days after the work ends. You'll be required to pay additional levies, or a refund may be applied for, if the final cost of work varies by $20,000 or more. Supporting documentation is required for increases and decreases to cost of work or exempted costs.

Failure to provide these details may result in the commencement of legal action.
