Document How do I record a levy adjustment?

Statutory Levy

Statutory Levy applies to all GDS contracts. There are three payment options and it's the choice of the Commissioner (Area Team / Local Health Board) which method they want to use in their area but you can only use one method per area.
 
The 'Amount Type' has a drop down menu that will give you three options:

  • Percentage Levy - Set the levy to be a percentage of the monthly* Total Contract Value (TCV). This is apportioned against each performers’ gross pay for providers’ information. A Levy will also be taken from any unallocated monthly TCV and this will show as a levy against the Contract.
     
  • Fixed Levy - Set amount per performer per month* (e.g. £20.00)
     
  • Overall Levy - Set amount for your area overall to be collected for the LDC per month* i.e. £5000. This would be collected evenly across all GDS contracts under your area. An apportionment is made against each performers’ gross pay for providers’ information. A Levy will also be taken from any unallocated monthly TCV and this will show as a levy against the Contract.

*The number of months the levy is deducted can be determined by you
