Levies will be calculated based on the latest income declared to the Financial Regulator.

An intermediary can only submit an amended declaration during the funding year for which they wish the updated declaration to apply.

An intermediary who was authorised for the first time in 2006 must supply a self-declaration of income to the Financial Regulator by 29 June 2007. This declaration should cover the period from the date of their authorisation to 31 December 2006.

For the purposes of this part of the Schedule (Category C only) income is defined as:

The total income generated by each authorised intermediary entity from regulated activity undertaken. This includes:

•     All commissions and any other income derived from product producers

•     All payments and amounts received from individuals or companies in relation to services/advice provided in relation to regulated services

•     Any other income derived from regulated activities (but not including interest earned by an entity on credit bank balances held in their own name).

On receipt of the levy notice for 2007 an intermediary should determine whether or not they should update the self- declaration that they submitted to the Financial Regulator for the calculation of the 2004, 2005 or 2006 levy. If the income figure for a more recent financial year is available, a new declaration should be made if this income figure would result in the intermediary moving to a different income range in relation to 2007 and therefore paying a different levy.

 

CATEGORY D

Investment Business Firms

(other than Investment Product Intermediaries)

Type of regulated entity

Basis of calculation for required levy contributions

D1 - Designated Fund Managers

Periodic Levy

 

A flat rate levy contribution of €1,100 is payable by designated fund managers.

 

Note: In determining which of the following categories (D2-D5) an entity is categorised into, consideration is given to the most senior element of their authorisation. Therefore if the authorisation of an entity allows it to be categorised as D2 or D3, it would be categorised as D3 as ‘Discretionary Portfolio Management’ is viewed as a more senior type of authorisation than ‘Receipt and Transmission of Orders’.

The figure used as the tariff base in Categories D2, D3 and D5 is the turnover figure from the audited accounts for the financial year end-2005. If the reporting period for an entity's audited accounts end-2005 is greater or less than 12 months, their accounting period and hence turnover will be pro-rated to a twelve-month period.

If a firm is newly authorised in 2005, (i.e. the relevant year for the tariff data for the 2007 levy period) the turnover figure will be extracted from the audited accounts for 2005, if available. If audited accounts for the financial period end-2005 were not prepared, the turnover figure from the first set of audited accounts produced, pro-rated for the period of operation in 2005, will be used.

If a firm is newly authorised in 2006, the turnover that will be used to calculate the levy is the turnover figure for the period from authorisation to 31 December 2006 as reported by the firm as part of the Capital Adequacy Return.
