In an earlier email this month, CITB informed employers of their latest Levy Proposals, which they are proposing should be used in the Levy Assessment to be raised in August 2021.  As well as a cut in Levy rates by 50% for all employers, the proposals will also mean that an extra 5,000 small employers will no longer have to pay any CITB Levy.

These rates will be applied to the information you provide in your 2020 Levy Return (covering 6 April 2019 – 5 April 2020), which you’ll receive for completion at the end of this month.  All Levy Registered Employers have a requirement to complete this and submitting your Levy Return by 30 November 2020 allows you to access our 2020/21 Grants Scheme and ensures that any outstanding grant payments can be made.

If you have any questions on how to complete your Levy Return, please contact CITB on 0344 994 4455 or email  You can also complete your return online here.
