The NSW Government has deferred the introduction of the Fire and Emergency Services Levy (FESL).
This has been done to ensure property owners - especially small to medium businesses - do not face an unreasonable burden in their contribution to the State’s fire and emergency services.
In the majority of cases across NSW, fully insured people would be better off under the new system.
However it had become clear that some fully insured businesses were facing unintended consequences.
The Government has listened to the concerns of the community and will take the time to get this reform right.
