From 1 January 2017 all building and construction work of $20,000 or more requires payment of the Tasmanian Building and Construction Training Levy. The levy contribution (0.2% of the contract price) is payable prior to commencement of work.

Council-approved works

For work requiring Council approval, payment of the Tasmanian Building and Construction Training Levy may be made via the relevant Council and is incorporated into the fee schedule for the works.

Large projects (no council approval)

For work not requiring a Council permit, the project owner is required to make payment directly. You will be asked to estimate the value of your project in order to calculate the levy payable.

You are required to contact Keystone Tasmania for a reclacluation of the levy if the final project cost differs from the estimation. This may result in a requirement to pay additinal levy, or you may be eligile for a partial refund.
