Calculating risk-based levies for the Financial Services Compensation Scheme deposits class - UPDATE

07 February 2017

Update 7 February 2017: The PRA has updated footnotes in paragraph 3.8 to align with the data item references used in the amended Credit Unions quarterly return and annual return templates published in Policy Statement 31/16 ‘Credit union regulatory reporting’.

​This statement of policy (SoP) sets out the calculation methodology that the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) uses, as the United Kingdom’s designated authority in respect of the Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS),  to calculate the risk-adjustment for DGS member contributions to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
This methodology will apply only to the calculation of compensation cost levies.
This SoP is intended to be read together with the rules governing the funding of the FSCS in the Depositor Protection Part of the PRA Rulebook, and the sections relating to the role of the FSCS in funding the DGS in PRA SoP, ‘Deposit Guarantee Scheme',  which applies to the FSCS. Readers may also wish to refer to the European Banking Authority (EBA) guidelines on risk-based contributions, upon which the PRA's methodology is based.
