Fire Services Property Levy (FSPL)

In July 2013, the Victorian Government introduced the Fire Services Property Levy which funds the operations of Victoria’s fire services (the MFB and CFA) as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission. It replaced the existing insurance-based funding model.

All Victorian Councils must collect the levy on behalf of the State Government. The levy is not Council revenue and we send all payments to the Victorian Government.
Find further information and details on the levy calculation on the Fire Service Levy website

If you are being charged a fire services levy on your insurance policy after 30 June 2013 you should contact Consumer Affairs on 1300 558 181.
