If You Insure with the UKFFA Scheme, your Premium is DUE !!

“For those of you who insure your craft through the UKGlobal scheme, your renewal is due on 15 March 2018.  Renewal notices have been sent out by UKGlobal, so do check your spam folders!  The team at UKGlobal have worked hard to keep premium increases as low as possible against a background of continually rising claims costs and another rise in Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) from 10% to 12%.  Premiums are competitive in the marketplace and the scheme continues to offer key benefits to members, as well as an income to UKFFA.  For more information, please contact Jerry, Charleigh or Fiona at UKGlobal on 01883 333500.”
