Calculation of fees due for the provision of postal services, in 2016, pursuant to paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 of article 44 of Law No. 17/2012, of 26 April
1. Under paragraphs 2 and 3 of Annex IX to Administrative Rule No. 1473-B/2008, of 17 December, as amended by Administrative Rule No. 296-A/2013, of 2 October, it is hereby made public knowledge of the value of the t2 contribution rate, which results from the application of the following formula, thus obtained:
Formula: t2 = (C (Year n) - T1n1 (Year n)) / ∑R2 (Year n-1);
C = Total costs incurred in the regulation of the provision of postal services, amount that corresponds to fees due to ANACOM in 2016 = 2,167,300€;
∑R0 = Total amount of relevant revenues of bodies of tier 0, in 2015 = 2,581,042€;
∑R1 = Total amount of relevant revenues of bodies of tier 1, in 2015 = 13,548,850€;
∑R2 = Total amount of relevant revenues of bodies of tier 2, in 2015 = 790,362,913€;
∑R = Total amount of relevant revenues of all postal service providers, in 2015 = 806,492,805€;
T1 = Fee due by bodies of tier 1 (relevant revenues >250,000€
n1 = Number of bodies of tier 1 = 25;
∑T1n1= 2,500€ x 25 = 62,500 €;
t2 = Contribution rate to be paid by bodies of tier 2 (relevant revenues > 1,500,000€) = (2,167,300€ - 62,500 €) / 790,362,913 € = 0.2663%;
a2 (Year n) = Part to be deducted in the calculation of fees due by bodies of tier 2
a2 = t2 (Year n) X RLI2 – T1(Year n) ) = 0.2663% x 1,500,001 € - 2,500 € = 1,494.50€
T2 (Year n) = t2 (Year n) x R2 (Year n-1) - a2 (the value of fees to be settled for a regular year is obtained by applying the 0.2663% rate to relevant revenues of each operator of tier 2 and deducting 1,494.50 €).
Given that 2016 is the fourth year of the transitional period, the calculated value is applied the 0.80 coefficient, pursuant to paragraph 8 of article 9 of Administrative Rule No. 296-A/2013.
2. Amounts of relevant revenues of some postal service providers were subject to a review, further to an audit carried out by Decision of ANACOM’s Management Board.
