Penalties

You may be penalised for not meeting your obligations under the Contract Cleaning Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Act 2005.

To avoid penalties, you should ensure you register with QLeave and complete and forward your Employer Return and levy payment within 14 days of the end of each return period.

The value of a penalty unit has increased to $130.55, effective 1 July 2018. Refer s.5 of the Penalties and Sentences Act 1992.

Single penalty
Employers who fail to submit their employer return and/or fail to pay the levy by the due date incur a single penalty unit ($130.55) for each breach of the legislation, that is $261 if both the employer return and levy is not received on time.

Double penalty
Employers who incur a penalty on more than one occasion in a 12 month period incur a double penalty unit ($261) for each breach of the legislation, that is $522 if both the employer return and levy is not received on time.

Note: The penalty is incurred the day after the due date and a further penalty is incurred for each month or part thereof the return and/or levy remains outstanding.
