Who pays the levy?

The levy is paid by the project owner.

Project owner is the person/organisation engaged to carry out or cause to be carried out all or substantially all of the building or construction work associated with a particular project (at the time of building approval). The project owner is often the ‘head contractor’.

In any other case, it is the person/organisation for whose direct benefit the building or construction work exists on its completion i.e. the property owner.
