The Minister of State, Sean Fleming T.D today, 27th September 2021, issued a press release on the Credit Union Levies for 2021. Commenting on this Kevin Johnson, CEO of the Credit Union Development Association, stated:
We note that the Minister has decided to continue with the levies for Resolution and for Stabilisation at the previous years levels. It is disappointing that the Minister deems it appropriate to continue to charge a levy for stabilisation as no financial assistance has been provided to credit unions under the Stabilisation Scheme to date and no applications for such support have been made by a credit union.
While CUDA continues to support the purpose of a stabilisation fund, we believe the fund has reached an optimum size and therefore the Stabilisation Fund Levy should be set at 0%.
