It pays to offer options


Sir, Your highlight the need for the construction industry to modernise its payment methods (Construction News, July 24).

The CITB has been working with employers to develop a wider range of payment options in regard to both levy and grant.

For some time now employers have been able to receive their grant payments through the BACS system. More recently, the CITB has been working with the industry to improve the levy payment process. We are now able to offer the option of completing levy returns online.

From April next year employers will, if they wish, be able to pay their levy by direct debit in 10 monthly installments.

We are taking steps to make the process of making payments, whether to or from us, as simple and straightforward as possible.

John Cowley Director of finance, CITB
