My colleague, Paull Lawrence, updated his levy calculators to help you determine what you can expect to pay.
There are two tools – the one is for sole proprietors only, and another for the rest. The latter also shows the levies for the various licence categories.
The FSB levy increase for FSP and Representatives is minimal (1.01% and 0.93% respectively), while the Ombud levy for FSPs and Representatives is inflation linked (6.10% and 6.00% respectively).
This year’s levy increase is smallest since it was first introduced in 2007.
The number of key individuals and representatives as at 31 August 2015 will be used to determine an FSPs levy. Kindly ensure that your records are up to date. Please also be aware that the FSB will not take kindly to people manipulating these figures to reduce their levy liability.
These levies are payable by 31 October 2015. Invoices will be sent in September.
