The Diffuse Mesothelioma Payments Scheme levy as a proportion of the employers’ liability gross written premium for the years specified is estimated as follows:
2014/15 - 2.2%
2015/16 - 1.5%
2016/17 - 2.5%
2017/18 - 2.1%.
The levy year is based on a fiscal year whereas the gross written premium (GWP) is based on the calendar year.
The proportions quoted above use the most recently available GWP data in any one year. Due to the time taken to collect and verify this data, the GWP figure used to calculate the proportion the levy represents will be two years old.
