Extension of Bank levy to 2021

  • The current Financial Institutions Levy (originally introduced for the 3 year period from 2014 to 2016), will be extended to 2021.  This is subject to a review taking place of the methodology used to calculate the levy (it is currently calculated on the basis of DIRT payments made in 2011).

Electronic Payments

  • A reduction in fees for retailers for accepting card payments will apply from 9 December 2015. The interchange fees for credit card payments will reduce to 30 basis points while the corresponding fee for debit card payments will be halved to 10 basis points.
