Levy Central - History

History of Levy Central

The collection of agricultural levies has been the core business of Levy Central for over 30 years. In 2022-2023, Levy Central collected over $27.5 million from 538 commodity buyers, which represented grain delivered by almost 53,000 agricultural commodity producers. The solid foundation of the Levy Central program is largely due to the high quality of these core services, our stellar reputation with existing clients, and our proven track record of expedient and efficient service.

New for the 2023-2024 crop year, Levy Central has gone paperless! All reports, deposits and year end reconciliation documentation will be provided electronically. Say goodbye to boxes of files to store! Now clients will receive a hard drive which will include all reports from buyers for the year.

Why was Levy Central created?

Levy Central was initially created to assist Canadian agricultural organizations with the important task of accurately recording and collecting agricultural levy check-off. We are committed to ensuring that the maximum check-off levy is collected following each of our client partner's unique Regulatory requirements and we pledge to do so in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Over time, other professional services have been added to meet client requirements and requests.

While we are undertaking these services for you, you can continue to expend your energies where they are most effective – increasing profitability for your producers through research and development and the promotion and marketing of your commodities.
