Definition of stability fee

Sweden introduced a so-called stability fee in 2008, which is levied on all bank liabilities including deposits.  This direct tax finances a special fund that would be used to bail out the industry in case of a future crisis.

Some members of the EU want to extend the idea of a direct bank tax across the 27-nation bloc but most proposals have focused on either taxing financial transactions or bank profits and remuneration rather than liabilities. [1]
