Industry Funding Levy - Payment Options

Regulated entities can pay their levy

  • Direct Debit, or
  • Electronic Funds Transfer.

Direct Debit

Payment by direct debit is the most efficient means of collecting the levy from the large number of firms regulated by the Central Bank.  It is also a convenient way to pay and ensures that your levy is paid on time.  You will receive a levy notice at least 28 days in advance of the payment by direct debit and therefore will know in advance of the amount due to be collected for the current levy year.

Regulated entities who have previously submitted a direct debit mandate will have their levy collected by way of direct debit no sooner than 35 days after the date the levy notice is issued.  Where a valid direct debit mandate exists this will be clearly indicated at the bottom of the levy invoice.

If you have not already submitted a direct debit mandate but wish to pay your annual Industry Funding Levy by direct debit please print and complete a copy of the Direct Debit Mandate.
