Long Service Levy

The long service levy is applied to all NSW building and construction projects of $25,000 or more (inc. GST). From 1 January 2023 the levy rate will change to 0.25% of the cost of building and construction works and will only be payable if the cost of works is $250,000 and above (inc. of GST).

The levy must be paid:
• before the council or accredited certifier releases the approved construction certificate (CC) or complying development certificate (CDC) to the person seeking the approval, or
• before the work can commence, if the work is being done under contract.
