The Victorian Government has officially made the landmark decision of abolishing the state’s fire services levy. Huge implications are now expected for the insurance industry…

    At present the fire services levy typically adds about 20% to the base premium of the average Victorian metropolitan home and contents policy, and 35% to regional household policies.

    ITS MORE LIKE 110% in the CFA AREAS

    Mario - That's for commercial. "Household policies" as the article mentions are substantially less.

    Can you please tell me why my contents insurance fire levy has been increased from $42.89 to$87.71 and my home insurance fire levy has incresed from $73.22 to $160.94 for 2012 to 2013 for a whole year. I live in Bairnsdale and not in a fire zone, although APIA cover for flood in my existing policy.

    Can you tell me why my contents fire levy has risen from $42.89 to $87.71 and my home fire levy has risen from $73.22 to $160.94 for the year October 2012 to October 2013 this is with APIA who state this is a Government directive when I have ben told by our local Parlimentarian that the levy on both should have been decreased not increased and that the premiums should have been for October 2012 to 30th June 2013
