ACM has requested providers of electronic-communications services to declare their turnovers over 2015. This information must be submitted to ACM no later than January 1, 2017.
Why are providers required to declare their turnovers?
ACM incurs costs for its regulatory activities. Providers of public electronic-communications services in the Netherlands must pay these costs to ACM themselves. Their individual payments are determined by a formula that is based on the relevant net turnovers.
How high are the regulatory costs?
ACM divides providers into two categories, based on their relevant net turnovers. If their turnovers are lower than EUR 2 million, then those providers are not required to pay any fee for ACM’s oversight. If their turnovers are higher than EUR 2 million, then those providers must pay fees in proportion to their relevant net turnovers.
