ACC Work levies go down

ACC Work levies are going down for all employers and self-employed, over the next two years — so you’ll get the same cover for less. 

What: Whether you’re an employer or self-employed your Work levy will go down by an average 10% over the next two years, compared with 2016/17 rates.

Exactly how much will depend on your industry and classification unit and how much you earn, so it could be a bit more or less.

Remember to budget for your ACC levy — it’s worth putting money in a separate account.

What you need to do

You don’t need to do anything — ACC will calculate your new levy, which will appear in your next invoice.

You’ll still get the same workplace cover, eg compensation for lost wages or the cost of physiotherapy and surgery.
