Boiler cover

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) oversees the regulation of financial products, and this includes certain boiler cover products.

When comparing boiler cover with uSwitch you will be shown products that are covered by the FCA and products that are not. The products that are not covered by the FCA are classed as service contracts and the products that are covered are more similar to insurance products.

The difference between these two types of products is limited to the way the product is described and the process in which you can complain. There is also a difference in tax: the service contracts are subject to VAT of 17.5%, whereas the FCA regulated plans are subject to insurance premium tax (IPT) at a standard rate of 5%. Please note all plans shown on your results include VAT and IPT where applicable.
