Whilst NHS England procrastinate on Covid funding for England, LOCSU announces levy resumption today.

August 2020

LOC levy payments to resume from August

The LOCSU levy will resume from 1stAugust 2020, following a four-month payment break during the initial phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The April-July break period was implemented to support LOCs during a period where LOCs were receiving very minimal or no levy payments from contractors and performers.

Since June, when NHSE confirmed that the full range of GOS services could resume, activity is returning albeit at reduced levels.

In recent weeks, LOCSU has conducted virtual meetings with LOC Treasurers to help LOCs plan for the longer term, given that income may continue at a reduced level for some time.

Going forward, LOCSU will facilitate regional meetings for Treasurers to enable networking and sharing of ideas and resources and update resources for LOC treasurers to reflect current practice and developing a reserves policy.

The Levy payment process will remain unchanged.

In an Annual Report published by LOCSU (2019) it appears that almost 1 Million pounds has been accumulated

July 2020

In the recently published LOCSU Annual Report 2018-19 highlighting the NOC 2019 conference, it sets out plans for the year ahead.

The report includes LOCSU’s then 2019 financial position which revealed it had built up a £997,000 reserve. LOCSU states that this nest egg has enabled LOCSU to offer levy payers a fee holiday during phase one of the pandemic. It will be interesting to see what reduction in their finances has occurred since Phase 1.
