What is Levy and What are the Benefits of it?

CITB NI is a statutory training board set up in 1964 to enable a fair way of gathering funds from employers to pay for the training needs of the collective workforce.  The CITB NI levy means that all employers in the industry make the appropriate financial contributions based on the annual levy rate of the wage bills for work in Northern Ireland. 

The benefits of the statutory levy system are about more than just giving CITB NI levy back to the industry in the form of CITB NI grants.  The levy funds a wide range of activities in addition to the CITB NI grants system.
 
Employers who have missed the CITB NI annual Return Deadline are unable to claim grant for that training year i.e. 1 September to 31 August. Employers have the right of appeal against this decision. For further information download the Appeals Process Map and Appeals Policy.
