The Fire Services Property Levy (FSPL) funds Victoria’s fire and emergency services.
The Victorian Government has announced changes to the FSPL to make the charge simpler and more consistent, and reflect the establishment of Fire Rescue Victoria.
Instead of different levy rates for properties in the Metropolitan Fire Brigade area and the Country Fire Authority area, state-wide rates will apply to properties in the same property classification across Victoria from 1 July 2020.
Additionally, earlier this month the Government announced that the levy will be frozen at this year’s collection level for next financial year as a measure designed to support Victorians affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Details about how the revised levy is calculated will be published on our fire services property levy page in the coming days.
