Appeals

6.—(1) A person assessed to the levy may appeal to an industrial tribunal against the assessment within one month from the date of the service of the assessment notice or within any further period of time that may be allowed by the Board or an industrial tribunal under the following provisions of the Article.

(2) The Board for good cause may, by notice, extend the time within which an appeal may be made by such further period as the Board may allow in any case where an application for such extension is made within a period of four months from the date of the service of the relevant notice of assessment or, where an extension has already been granted, before the period of such extension has expired.

(3) If the Board shall not allow an application for extension of time for appealing, an industrial tribunal shall, upon application to the tribunal by the person assessed to the levy within the period of fourteen days from the date of receipt of the decision of the Board refusing such an application, have the like powers as the Board under paragraph (2).

(4) In the case of an establishment that ceases to carry on business in the forty-first levy period on any day after the date of the service of the relevant assessment notice the foregoing provisions of this Article shall have effect as if for the period of four months from the date of this service of the assessment notice mentioned in paragraph (2) there were substituted the period of six months from the date of the cessation of business.

(5) An application to an industrial tribunal under this Article shall be made in accordance with the Industrial Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996(1).
