Declaration
By signing this declaration:
- I acknowledge that if the intended date of commencement changes, failure to notify the CIL collecting authority before
development commences of this date with a new commencement notice will result in the CIL amount being due for payment in
full on the date of commencement.
- I also acknowledge that failure to notify the CIL collecting authority of the intended date of commencement by submitting a
commencement notice in advance of this date will result in the CIL collecting authority imposing a surcharge of 20% of the
amount of CIL due for payment, up to a maximum of £2,500 (the surcharge is discretionary in respect of exceptional
circumstances relief).
- I also confirm my understanding that:
- If my Liability or Revised Liability Notice for CIL was issued before 1 September 2019; and
- If I have either been granted an exemption or relief from the levy, or will be seeking an exemption or relief from the levy
(which I understand must be granted prior to commencement of the development)
That failure to notify the CIL collecting authority of the intended date of commencement by submitting a commencement notice
in advance of this date will nullify any exemption or relief I have previously obtained, and make me liable for the levy (except in
respect of exceptional circumstances relief), and that a surcharge may also be applied.
- I confirm that a copy of this notice has been served on all persons known to me as an owner of the land on which the chargeable
development will be built.
For the purpose of CIL, an owner is an owner of a freehold interest in the relevant land or a leasehold interest in the relevant land of
7 years or more from the date planning permission first permits the chargeable development.
