After inheriting an absolute mess after the 2008 election, ACC Minister Nick Smith announced last week there may be scope for ACC levies to reduce later this year.

This is good news for hardworking business owners and wage earners after three years of struggle to fix ACC’s books.

The Government appreciates that households and businesses are under a lot of financial pressure.  The plan  is to be able to pass on the benefits of ACC’s improved financial performance with levy reductions for both employees and employers.

This turnaround in ACC’s finances is from improved rehabilitation, reduced claim numbers and better management of costs.

The National Government has focused on getting better value for taxpayer dollars and it is paying off across the board.
