In the event that a levy payer register is being kept by a Research and Development Corporation (RDC), levy payers will be able to access their information through the Levy Payer Portal.
The Levy Payer Portal gives you access to:
- register as a levy payer
- view the levies that have been collected and disbursed to RDCs on your behalf
- review and update your personal details.
You will only be able to see your information for levies and charges that are disbursed to RDCs that are keeping a levy payer register. Check the
notices page for more details.
If a collection agent includes your email on their levy returns, you will automatically receive an email inviting you to register for access to the Levy Payer Portal.
To protect your privacy, levy payers will need to pass a verification check as a part of the registration process.
