Fire and Emergency Services Levy

From Saturday 1 July 2017, the NSW Government will abolish the Emergency Services Levy (ESL) on insurance policies and replace it with a Fire and Emergency Services Levy (FESL) paid alongside council rates. 

This means that from 1 July 2017, AlburyCity Council is required to collect, on behalf of the NSW Government, the levy alongside your council rates.  The revenue raised from FESL will then be directed to the NSW State Emergency Service, NSW Rural Fire Service and NSW Fire and Rescue.

For more information on the FESL and how it will affect you please visit the Fire and Emergency Services Levy website or alternatively you can phone on 1300 787 872 or submit an enquiry via email.

Alternatively, for more information you can visit the Emergency Services Levy Insurance Monitor website.

FESL Request for Land Classification Review

If you do not agree with your FESL Land Classification for your property you can request a review by completing the Fire and Emergency Services Levy – Land Classification Review form and return to Council for processing.
