Allocation of recoveries



Any recoveries made by the FSCS after 31 March 2008 in relation to protected claims compensated prior to 1 April 2008, the costs of which were allocated to the relevant contribution group in place at the time, must be credited to the sub-class in place after 31 March 2008 to which the costs of the protected claim would have been allocated had it been compensated after that date, or if relevant, in accordance with FEES 6.3.20 R.



FEES TP 2.4.1R does not apply to the extent that it is inconsistent with the compensation transitionals order.





In FEES TP 2 'contribution group' means one of the groups of participant firms within a sub-scheme in existence prior to 1 April 2008 set out in FEES 6.5.7 R at the time, being groups that carried on business of a similar nature, to which compensation costs and specific costs were allocated in accordance with FEES 6.4 and FEES 6.5 in force at the time. Sub-scheme means one of the sub-schemes to which FSCS allocated liabilities for compensation costs prior to 1 April 2008, as described in FEES 6.5.7 R at the time.



For the purpose of FEES 6.5.13 R as it applies with respect to the financial year of the compensation scheme4 beginning on 1 April 2008:


references in FEES 6.5.13 R to sub-classes must be read as references to sub-classes to which firms will belong after 31 March 2008; and


(where FEES TP provides for the tariff base for a sub-class to be calculated by reference to a contribution group prior to that date) FEES 6.5.13 R (1) must be read as also including a requirement for the supply of the necessary information in relation to that contribution group.



The amendments made to FEES 6.5.16 R by the Fees Manual (FSCS Funding) Instrument 2007 only have effect before 1 April 2008 for the purpose of the financial year of the compensation scheme4 beginning on 1 April 2008.



FEES 6 Annex 2 R and FEES 6 Annex 3 R (classes, sub-classes and tariff bases) are brought into force for the purpose of FEES TP and FEES 6.5.13 R in November 2007. However they do not have any other effect until 1 April 2008.


Past defaults



The changes made to the levy rules made by the Fees Manual (FSCS Funding) Instrument 2007 apply to any levy made after 31 March 2008. This is so even if:


the claim against the firm in default arose or relates to circumstances arising before that date; or4


the firm was in default before that date.4
