Paying the levy

Employers must pay a levy to QLeave each quarter in addition to completing an Employer Return.

We calculate the levy based on 0.75% of workers' ordinary wages paid during the return period. Click here to find out more about calculating ordinary wages.

After submitting your employer return, QLeave will send you an invoice for the levy due. You must pay the levy (and submit your employer return) to QLeave within 14 days after the end of each quarter.

See the table below for a guide to employer return periods and due dates for returns and levy payments:
