Yep, you've guessed it, the FSCS levy has been hiked up. Not once, but twice, just to rub salt into the wound.
First up, the FSCS confirmed what brokers already feared - that the 2012/13 interim levy would be £20m. This is a cool 55% rise on top of the previously announced £36m, amounting to a year total of £56m.
And with the pain still stinging in brokers' wallets, the FSCS revealed that next year's indicative levy would be £58m.
