Exemptions

GOVERNMENT: Australian, State or Local - an exemption may be claimed by government bodies for that part of the levies attributable to the value of work carried out by its own workers.

NOT SUBSTANTIALLY ENGAGED (NSE): Organisations not substantially engaged (NSE) in the building and construction industry - an exemption may be claimed for that part of the levies attributable to the value of work carried out by a person who is not substantially engaged in the building and construction industry, or their workers or contractors (who are not substantially engaged in the building and construction industry).

NPO: Non-Profit Organisations - an exemption can be claimed for that part of the levies attributable to voluntary labour (that is, the worker is not paid) and materials that have been donated.

OWB: Owner Builder - if the work is covered by an Owner Builder Permit issued by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC), QLeave must be notified of the work. However, no payment is required with the form if a valid Owner Builder Permit Number is provided. If you do not provide a valid Owner Builder permit number on the Notification and Payment Form, an exemption cannot be given and the full amount must be paid.

For information regarding Owner Builder permits, please contact the Queensland Building and Construction Commission on 139 333 or visit
www.qbcc.qld.gov.au.

Please note: Your Owner Builder permit number is not your course number. You must apply to the QBCC for an Owner Builder permit after you have completed an Owner Builder course.
