What are the rates ?
The rates for the collections per reference year (in Euro, excl. VAT):
The rates per borrowing per reference year (in Euro, excl. VAT):
If the annual number of borrowings of a certain community does not reach a threshold of 1% of the total number of borrowings in Belgium, a special measure enters into force. The community in case will then pay a lump sum which covers both remunerations for the size of the collection and the number of borrowings. Up to reference year 2012, this lump sum is set at 8,000 EUR. This lump sum, too, will rise each year from (reference year) 2013 till 2017. In practice, this only applies to the German Community.
