Online payment terms and conditions for insurer contributions

When using our online payment service to pay your emergency services levy, read the following terms and conditions:

  1. Once registered for emergency services levy online payment, Revenue NSW will debit your nominated account.

    Clients will be deemed to have given approval to debit the nominated financial institution account upon receipt of the online payment forwarded to Revenue NSW. Once registered, a client must separately authorise a payment via the online payment form.

    Revenue NSW will not debit the nominated account for any purpose or at any time other than via an approved authorisation from the client.

  2. It is your responsibility to have sufficient cleared funds available in your account to permit the debiting of the authorised amount by Revenue NSW.

  3. Online payments authorised on or before 5:00pm on a business day will be debited from the nominated account on that business day.

    Online payments authorised after 5:00pm on a business day, or on a day other than a business day, will be debited from the nominated account on the next business day. The date of receipt will be the same as the day that you authorised the online payment.

    When the future dated payment option is used, the date selected must be on or before the due date for emergency services levy.

  4. Interest, and in some cases penalty tax, will apply for late payments in accordance with the Taxation Administration Act 1996.

  5. Revenue NSW's online payment system only accepts one scheduled payment at a time. You can make multiple payments prior to the instalment due date, however, only once the current scheduled payment has been completed. If you attempt to schedule a second payment without the first being complete, the current scheduled payment will be cancelled automatically.

    For example, if $1,000 is scheduled for 2 August 2017. You can schedule a second payment of $5,000 after 2 August 2017.

    If you try to schedule the $5,000 payment on 2 August 2017, you are prompted with a warning that the existing scheduled payment of $1,000 will be cancelled.

  6. If you wish to dispute any online payment, please email our Property Levies Team.

  7. Revenue NSW will make every attempt to ensure that disputes over any debit of your account are resolved within 14 business days.

  8. Your online payment registration remains in force until it is cancelled. You can cancel your registration online by using the cancel payment option under emergency services levy.

  9. If you change your account and want to continue making online payments, you need to update your details using Insurer profile under emergency services levy. Please ensure you do not have an existing payment scheduled before changing account your details.

  10. Revenue NSW will notify you at least 14 days in advance of any changes to the terms and conditions of this agreement.

  11. Revenue NSW will protect the privacy of any personal information supplied. Some information may be given to financial institutions involved in the event of a payment dispute, or to verify that Revenue NSW has received a emergency services levy online payment registration from you.
