Changes to the Emergency Services Levy

There have been a reduction in the NSW Emergency Services Levy (ESL) rates for Residential and Commercial Insurance Plan policies, including Build to Rent and Community Association policies.

The emergency services levy is a contribution, in the form of an insurance premium, to support the work of emergency services in NSW, and is governed by the Emergency Services Levy Act 2017

The new ESL rates are:

Residential Property:  13%  (previous rate 14.35%)

Commercial Property 22.9%  (previous rate 26.25%)

The new rates come into effect on 1 April 2022.

Any renewals or new business with a due date of 1 April 2022 onwards, that have already been issued prior to 24 Jan 2022, will remain unchanged.
