Conclusions on our levy rules for 2021/22
We published our consultation on the levy rules for 2021/22 in September 2020, which set out our proposals for how we will calculate the levy for invoices issued in 2021. This consultation has now closed.
We expect to publish our conclusions to the consultation and the final rules in January 2021. In the interim, however, we have published a statement setting out our direction of travel for the key policy changes that will be taken forward in the final rules.
Conclusions on insolvency scoring methodology for 2021/22 levy year
In December 2019 we introduced new insolvency risk services with Dun & Bradstreet and published a consultation on our insolvency scoring methodology from 2021/22 onward.
We have now published our policy statement setting out our conclusions following this consultation. Respondents were supportive of our proposed approach and the basis for scoring will be largely unchanged from that consulted on. However, we have carefully considered suggestions for change and will be introducing a number of improvements to our services.
The mean average of twelve monthly scores generated between April 2020 and March 2021 will be used in calculating levy invoices to be issued in autumn 2021.
Dun & Bradstreet scores
For the 2021/22 levy year we'll be using insolvency risk scores produced by our insolvency risk partner Dun & Bradstreet.
The first monthly score used to calculate the levy will be generated in April 2020. You can view your scores in our portal and engage with customer services through different channels.
