Billing (invoicing)

Rules for billing and decisions concerning IFS deployment

Once the software application has been installed, the designated operator is required to pay the annual fee, which covers software maintenance and updating costs. An annual fee is also charged for use of the POST*Net network (the amounts billed to users are based on their message volumes).

The date of the on-site installation of the software application is not necessarily the date on which the application becomes operational (production launch date). The annual fee covers the period starting from the first day of the month following installation of the application (fees based on standard annual fee).

Annual fees for applications and services

Charges for applications are payable annually, within 30 days of the bill. Bills are sent out each January. They correspond to the amounts due for the current year. The annual fees include the cost of automatically dispatching new versions of software offered by the PTC.

Communication charges based on volume

POST*Net Finance communication charges are billed at least once every three months.

Payment of bills

All bills issued by the PTC must be paid within 30 days of their receipt.

Important: procedure for unpaid bills

A debt in arrears shall include any unpaid amount relating to membership fees, members’ contributions to funding, fees charged on the basis of the «Schedule of Charges» and licensing fees which have not been paid within 90 days of the billing date. After that period, interest shall be charged for all debts in arrears. The sum due shall be chargeable with an interest in favor of the budget of the Postal Technology Centre at the rate of 6 per cent from the fourth month.

VAT (or other surcharges)

All fees do not include VAT and/or any other surcharges paid by the Licensee in accordance with its national legislation.
