Are you eligible for an exemption?

You may be eligible for an exemption on some or all the liable levy payment calculated above. Please visit the Exemptions page for more information.

If you believe you are eligible for an exemption, please contact us on 1300 753 283 or email before you pay the levy.

If you have already paid the levy, but think you are eligible for an exemption, you can lodge a reconsideration request of the levy determination.

What happens after the levy is paid?

It's important to remember that your QLeave obligations don't end once you've notified the work and paid the levy. You need to keep us updated with any changes to project details, and once work ends you'll be invited to finalise project details to ensure the correct levies have been paid.
