Account fees 2015
Umweltbundesamt levies a fee for the account management. The account fees are annual all-in fees. The period of service for the account fees is the current calender year (1 January – 31 December). The basis for the calculation of the account fee for operator and aircraft holding accounts are the average verified emission in the past three years that are available at the beginning of the period of service. Since the verified emissions for a certain year are only available from 1st April of the following year the emissions from the previous year cannot be taken into account when determining the annual fee. For person, trading and former operator holding accounts a flat fee is charged.
The fees of Umweltbundesamt have to be approved annually by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management and are applicable for one calendar year. Compared with 2014, the account fees for the year 2015 remain unchanged.
