Finalise work details

Once building and construction work is completed, you must notify us of the total final cost of work. You need to do this if the actual cost of work is $50,000 or more than the initial amount notified to QLeave.

You must do this within 30 days after the work ends. Otherwise, you'll be required to pay additional levies if the final cost of work is $20,000 or more than you originally notified. If the cost of work has decreased, you may be eligible for a full or partial refund. Refund applications must be made within one year of the work being completed.  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.
