Monday saw the opening of the consultation into CITB Levy proposals, in which they’re suggesting a return to pre-Covid rates in the way they raise the Levy for the next three years. CITB is asking for feedback on its plans to help get construction back on its feet and play a leading role in the country’s economic recovery.

Following their decision to apply a 50% Levy rate for this year, CITB is now proposing returning to 2019 levels from 2022. CITB will support smaller employers even further this year by increasing the threshold, making an extra 5,000 exempt from paying the Levy.  Employers in scope to CITB are eligible for grant even if they do not pay the Levy.  You can get full details on the CITB proposals by clicking here.

CITB Levy registered employers can take part in the consultation, which runs until Sunday 11 April, by clicking here. You can also register for one of their virtual events explaining the CITB proposals here.  Consensus will take place from Monday 14 June to Sunday 15 August, with more information available here.
