How are your levies calculated?

Have you ever reviewed your budgets or general meeting material and wondered how your levies are calculated? Or similarly, have you just paid your levy without really knowing what you’ve been paying for? Here is a quick guide to assist you in calculating the levies applicable to your lot.

To calculate the levies applicable to your lot, you will need to locate the following figures:

Example 1 Total per Contribution entitlement – this is located in the Administrative Fund and maintenance fund Motions in the Annual General Meeting Agenda (refer below example 1);

Example 2 Lot Liability applicable to your lot – this is located on the top right hand corner of your individual levy notice (refer below example 2).

To calculate the levies applicable to your lot for a 12 month period, simply multiply the total per lot liability in example 1, by the number of contribution entitlements in example 2.

Using the above example the Administrative Fund Levy will be $42.55 x 10 = $425.50.

If you only want to calculate the next levy which is due (for example, 1 May 2015 above) simply multiply the dollar amount in that row by your contribution entitlements in example 2. Using this example, the total levy amount due 1 May 2015 is $7.35 x 10 = $73.50.

When looking at this example, please note this is only applicable for your Administrative and Maintenance Fund levies. If your body corporate has an insurance levy or additional, one-off levies, please contact your Community Manager for more information, as this can have a significant impact on how much you will pay for your levies throughout the year.

i feel that the way the water usage is passed on is unfair and very very questionable.. the amount of families using more water than people living on their own and not using much and having to pay excess is outrageous. need to be looked at .

I have recently moved to Melbourne and shocked and amazed at the difference in the cost of Body Corporate. In Queensland I pay more than $4000 per annum for each of my properties in Melbourne the average cost is $1,200-$1,500 per annum!! How can they be so different.
