Appealing against an assessed Levy

An employer can lodge an appeal against an assessed levy to an Employment Tribunal on the following grounds:-

  • That the establishment being assessed was not wholly or mainly engaged in engineering construction activities during the relevant base period; or 
  • The the amount of levy assessed has not been correctly calculated.

An appeal must be lodged within one month from the date of the service of the Demand for Payment. A formal appeal is not always necessary and the ECITB is prepared to review both the registration of an establishment or the training levy assessed if there are grounds to do so, and provided the matter is brought to our attention before the training levy becomes due.
