Levy Payer Portal

​IMPORTANT - You can lodge your return online

The Levy Payer Portal allows levy payers to access their information if a levy payer register is kept by a Research and Development Corporation (RDC).

You can access the Levy Payer portal.


The Levy Payer Portal gives you access to:

  • view the levies that have been collected on your behalf if an RDC is keeping a register
  • review and update your personal details.

You can only access information about yourself and the levies you pay if an RDC is keeping a levy payer register. This means that some of the levies you pay may not be included in the portal because an RDC has not established a register.

Check the notices page for more information about the RDCs that have established a levy payer register.

Registration process

You will automatically receive an email from the department inviting you to register to access the Levy Payer Portal if a collection agent includes your email as part of their levy return. To protect your privacy, you will be asked to answer a question about your levy transactions or provide documentation to verify your identity as part of the registration process.
