On 30 May 2017, the Government advised that it will not proceed with its previously announced policy of funding fire and emergency services through a property levy collected by councils from 1 July 2017.
The Government will instead revert to the previous approach whereby insurers fund these services by adding an Emergency Services Levy (ESL) onto property insurance premiums.
The Government has advised that legislation reinstating the ESL on insurance from 1 July 2017 is expected to be introduced and passed by the Parliament on or around 20 June. Allianz is engaging with the Government and the ESL Monitor in order to achieve a smooth reintroduction of the ESL after 1 July.
Further advice will be provided in due course.
