ACC CoverPlus Extra is an optional product that lets self-employed people negotiate a pre-agreed level of compensation for lost earnings. If you opt for CoverPlus Extra you’ll receive two invoices each year; the first in April/May and the second soon after your tax return has been filed with Inland Revenue. This page tells you about what’s in your CoverPlus Extra invoice.
Changes to CoverPlus invoices for self-employed
As part of our recent invoice redesign, we’ve made minor changes to levy invoice content and layout, based on feedback you’ve provided. These include:
- Any outstanding balances from previous unpaid invoices will not be on the invoice. Instead you’ll receive a letter about any outstanding payments.
- The front page of the invoice displays the invoice amount and the amount of GST you’re able to claim for on this invoice.
- The back page of the invoice details how your levies are calculated.
On 1 April 2016, the residual portion was removed from the levies you pay. For more information, go to:

How your CoverPlus Extra levy invoices are made up
If you’re a CoverPlus Extra customer, you’ll receive two invoices each year.
Your first CoverPlus Extra invoice is made up of:
- Work Account levy – this is a levy for personal injury cover. It covers you should you be injured while at work. This levy may include any discounts or loadings that you get through the Experience Rating programme
- Earners’ Levy – this covers you for injuries outside of work (except motor vehicle injuries)
- Discounts – ACC Workplace Safety Discount or Workplace Safety Management Practices discount (if applicable)
This invoice uses the agreed level of cover.
Your second CoverPlus Extra invoice is made up of:
- Working Safer levy – (previously Health and Safety in Employment levy) this levy is collected on behalf of Work Safe New Zealand to cover their costs of administering health and safety at work in New Zealand
The Working Safer levy uses the actual self-employed liable earnings that you filed with Inland Revenue for the previous financial year.
You’ll also see the other levies that you were invoiced earlier in the year on the invoice
