CITB training levy is legal, judge rules

21 April 2016

A Judicial Review of the construction industry training levy has concluded that CITB is entitled to charge it.

The Judicial Review was instigated by payroll company Hudsons Contract Services Ltd against BIS (the government Department for Business, Innovation & Skills), with CITB named as an interested party.

It looked at aspects of the CITB levy and a simplification of the scheme carried-out in 2015.

The case was heard last month at the Royal Courts of Justice, London, and the judgment given on 19 April.

The ruling upholds the current CITB levy order and the levy simplification process.

The judge dismissed all claims by Hudsons, and ordered the company pay CITB’s legal costs.

Hudson bosses are reportedly determined to carry on their campaign for change to what they describe as a “destructive” system.
