                               be paid to the BSA who then in turn forwards a confirmation of insurance.

                               The BSA Insurance Scheme is a Statutory Scheme established by the Queensland
                               Government to provide protection to consumers for insurable residential construction work
                               over $3,300 in value. It provides protection against:

                                                             3. Subsidence or settlement of the building

                               by most TAFE institutions and several private providers.

                               Building Application.

                               When calculating the value of building work, the owner builder applicant must include the cost
                               of materials and the cost of labour as if a licensed contractor performed the work.

                               For further information in relation to the above please contact the BSA office in Maroochydore
                               on (07) 5479 8500.

Item 11                   Where the value of the work is above $80,000 a Portable Long Service levy is calculated at 0.2%
                          of the contracted cost of the building. This levy is paid in conjunction with Work Place Health &
                          Safety levy which combined is 0.425% of the contracted cost of the building. This levy must be
                          paid at a Post Office.
                          The P.L.S.L form and a copy of your receipt must be included with your application.
                          Owner builders are exempt from paying this levy, however the form must still be completed and
                          lodged at a post office to show exemption from payment.
