Repayment or credit of the levy under these Regulations

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

9.—(1) This regulation applies where the total amount of the levy exceeds the leviable costs in respect of the relevant charging period.

(2) Where this regulation applies, after the relevant charging period the OGA must divide the leviable costs by the total amount of the levy to 3 decimal places to give the relevant multiplier.

(3) The OGA must then adjust the levy payable by a relevant person (“the original levy”) by multiplying the amount of the original levy by the relevant multiplier to give the new levy figure payable by that person for the relevant charging period (“the new levy”).

(4) The new levy is to be substituted for the original levy in any notification given, or to be given, under regulation 6, and regulation 7 is to be construed accordingly.

(5) If a relevant person to whom a notification is given under regulation 6 pays more than the new levy, the OGA must, by 31st December 2019, pay to the person the difference between the new levy and the amount the person actually paid (after deducting any repayment of this amount that has already been made).

(6) In this regulation—

“relevant person” means a person who is liable to pay a levy under either regulation 3 or 4 of these Regulations (and includes a person who has discharged that liability in whole or in part); and

“total amount of the levy” means the total amount notified to licensees under regulation 6.
