    Direct debit or by instalments

    You can pay your levy as a direct debit on your due date, or if your invoice is $500 or more (excluding GST) you can pay in instalments of:

    • four to six months in fortnightly or monthly payments 
    • seven to ten months as a monthly payment. This option includes a 5.4% admin fee.

    To set this up, fill in the direct debit and instalment payments form. We need to receive this at least 10 days before the due date.
